Appreciating and collecting art is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, not just limited to the savvy collector. To help enhance the art-buying experience, Art Alive has brought together works of internationally celebrated painters available at affordable prices.

The exhibition titled, Indian Contemporary Art, showcases the works of master painters Sakti Burman, Laxma Goud, Anjolie Ela Menon, Thota Vaikuntam, Prabhakar Kolte, Paresh Maity, Jayasri Burman, Nayanaa Kanodia and Maya Burman among others.

Display varying styles and art forms, the exhibition makes the works of these painters available at lesser prices to art lovers in the city. The art show offers a real trove of affordable works for collectors with a good eye. The paintings are a combination of  influences from both Indian tradition and Western culture. 

Talking about his works on display, painter Sakti Burman, says, “Through my paintings I want to evoke the look of a weathered fresco, depicting figures in hues that the viewer feels were once vivid, but are now faded. The perspective and composition of my work here are of medieval icons.” The painter who is deeply inspired by French Impressionist art uses a marbling effect, and employs pointillism to apply paint and was recently felicitated by the Bombay Art Society.

Among other contemporary works, his canvas on display rediscovers a lost paradise, where human characters and godly images evoke memories of ancient tempered frescoes. The other works of art also weave a contemporary display where the reality mingles with the imaginary.
