Artists such as Paresh Maity, Revati Sharma, Subhash Awchat, Jatin Das, Sujata Bajaj and Satish Gupta among others have been part of this project. The result is a much coveted, unique collection, which will not only add value to any art collection but also has the ability to support breast cancer awareness cause, as sale proceeds will go to Passages.

Colour of Life is a fresh series of oil paintings with lively visuals of colourful South Indian life. Market is a major life source of South India along with temples and music. Ramachandran’s main focus is upon amalgamated glorification of not only South Indian royals but also roadside market’s colourful common folks. Exhibiting for over two decades, Ramachandran’s work has been commercially adapted in various marketing campaigns such as Luck By Chance and ABCD posters.

Brush with Bollywood
Senior artist Lalitha Lajmi will present a solo show of her recent works in oil, water colours and ecthings (prints) from today. These works are inspired by and maybe considered to be an expression of her childhood surrounded by the cinema. The Clown has been used a metaphor, as Lajmi conveys her subconscious mind. “I think somewhere in my subconscious mind with our entire family being in cinema, the form of the mask came to me for ecthings and I have been trying to discover images of performers on the stage, cinema and on the stage of life,” says the sister of legendary Guru Dutt.
