The artists are young, and their art is younger and a whole lot more affordable. Myriad Expression-II presents affordable art for every pocket. Presented by art organisation AnYah, the exhibition showcases works by seven in-house artists of the group — with prices ranging from Rs 5,000 to Rs 1.5 lakh.
The artists have worked on different themes ranging from surreal to romanticism and human emotions. Most of the paintings are oil on canvas, with a few experiments of charcoal on paper. Artist Dipankar Sikder from Kolkata explores social and political themes in his work. Explaining his work Speak for justice, priced at Rs 48,000, he says, “The chain around the painting depicts the struggle and the faces with their mouths tied up shows how we are just helpless when it comes to raising our voices.”
“With this initiative, we are providing a platform to young and emerging artists from our country and in the process we are also bringing a range of affordable art to collectors, corporate organisations, customised art buyers and of course art lovers,” says Meena Verma, Associate VP, AnYah.
The exhibition is on till April 18 at Travancore Palace, Kasturba Gandhi Marg (adjacent to Bhartiya Vidya Bhawan)
