“Capturing Nature’s Essence: The Nisargarupam Exhibition”

The “Nisargarupam” Painting Exhibition, featuring watercolor landscapes by artist Santosh Kardak , will be organized from June 4th to June 10th, 2024, at the Nehru Centre Art Gallery, Worli, Mumbai. While performing the duties of an art teacher, Santosh Kardak will bring the natural beauty of areas like Junnar to life on paper with the help of his brush. All these paintings will be enjoyed by art lovers at the exhibition.

Santosh Kardak is a professional artist with a lifelong passion for painting. He pursued his interest in painting from childhood and continued his artistic journey by obtaining a B.A. and subsequently, he pursued a Diploma, completing two years of ATD alongside. Under the mentorship of well-known artist Sanjay Sable, Kardak refined his skills in the intricate handling of watercolors. Later, during his tenure as an art teacher in Junnar, he adeptly captured the essence of nature using the challenging medium of watercolor. Kardak’s paintings are characterized by his ability to capture the simplicity of everyday subjects on paper in an artistic manner that brings the scene to life.

Upon relocating to the Akole area, Kardak found himself presented with an excellent opportunity for authentic landscape painting. The natural beauty of this region is truly remarkable, inspiring Kardak to create numerous landscape paintings depicting various subjects such as the waterfalls during the monsoons, overflowing paddy fields, and the valleys of Konkan.

In the face of rapidly changing times, nature is becoming increasingly distant from humanity. The relentless pace of urbanization threatens to erode the beauty of rural areas. In such circumstances, the “Nisargarupam” Exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience the wonderful beauty of nature through art. It is an exhibition that should not be missed.

This exhibition, which brings together a diverse range of rare artworks by Indian masters ranging from pre-independence to contemporary, presents a great opportunity for collectors and audiences to witness the diversity and complexity of Indian art under one roof.

This show was inaugurated on 28th May 2024 by Padmashree Dr. Prakash Kothari  Art Collector in the presence of  Prabhakar Kolte Eminent Artist, Prashant Kashikar Managing Director at Mika Engineering India Pvt Ltd., Rtn Khuzem Sakharwala , Co Founder Rotary Club of Mumbai Bravehearts, Ajay Mehta Art Collector, Dr. Jayesh Dakre Nueo Sciencetist and Smart future Counselar, Mahendra Kalantri , Director Acclaim Systems India Pvt Ltd. 

Modern Indian art remains the proverbial jewel in the crown for art collectors, with a consistent demand for works by masters. However, finding rare and authentic works has always been a challenge. This exhibition is one such platform that has been curated by Sumanta Paul, the Honorary Advisor of Rabi Art Gallery, showcasing only genuine artworks that he has been meticulously collecting over the past 30 years. 

In honor of his late father and well-known artist Rabi Paul, Sumanta Paul founded the Rabi Art Gallery in Shantiniketan in 1996. Rabi Paul was a disciple of Ramkinker Baij and Nandalal Bose. He also worked closely with Satyajit Ray. As a visionary and advocate of Indian art, Sumanta planned multiple art shows around the county.  Over the years, Sumanta worked closely with several artists and continued to personally collect their works, building a sizable collection of authentic, rare and remarkable artworks. 

This exhibition offers a comprehensive look at two centuries of Indian art practices, encompassing significant trends, artistic interventions, media, and techniques. One can witness the watercolour, tempera, and gouache techniques of the Bengal School incorporated by artists like Ramkinkar Baij, Abanindranath Tagore, Gaganedranath Tagore, Nandlal Bose, Binode Behari Mukherjee, Chittaprosad Bhattacharya, Somnath Hore, Ganesh Pyne, Rabin Mondal, Jamini Roy, and Rabi Paul to the new media and expressions of modern masters and contemporaries like Rabin Mondal, Rabi Paul, Paritosh Sen Nirode Majumdar, Sunil Das, Prokash Karmarkar, Lalu Prasad Shaw, and K. Laxma Goud to veterans like Jogen Chowdhury, Samir Aich, Subrata Gangopadhyay, Sunil Padwal, T. Vaikuntham, and T.V. Santosh. 

India’s rich tapestry of spirituality, culture, and tradition has indeed been a wellspring of inspiration for artists throughout history. This exhibition encapsulates the complex artistic practices of Indian art, taking the viewers on a historical tour through the brilliant colours, and gripping narratives and interpretation in diverse mediums.

Every Picture has a story…

A Solo Show of Photo Art

This show was inaugurated on 1st May 2024 by the hands of Adv. Rajay Gaikwad  Honourable advocate at Mumbai Highcourt.

An exhibition of Photographs by Kabeer Ramesh

Photo artist Kabeer Ramesh offers yet another solo exhibition titled ‘Every Picture has a story…’, the previous being ‘Frozen in Time’, which was held at the prestigious Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.  ‘Every Picture has a story…’,  exhibited at the ‘Nitya Artists Centre’, Prabhadevi, from 1st May, 2024 onwards, grapples with, as the title suggests, human endeavours/stories in diverse and vivid contexts; these are photo-stories of promises and perils of being human: the glories and triumphs memorialised in monuments are juxtaposed with toiling workers in busy bazaar streets of Kolkata; the symbols of towering human achievements – the world famous the Taj Mahal and London Bridge – co-habit with the unease of forlorn ruins of the dilapidated and discarded. Interestingly, the idea of loners is presented in creatively imagined forms – the ‘lone stone’ of Shillong relentlessly standing up to vagaries of waters, and the unending wait of birds in summer of Rajasthan. The trees presented in Kabeer Ramesh’s work too depict the diverse meaning universe: the erratic desires of the colonising human, and the falling humanity supported by dried branches of the uprooted. The exhibition also offers noteworthy studies in perspective – the broad-ways and the marvel of the Howrah bridge – what appears as meeting may be illusive, and what is near maybe far.  The monuments in Kabeer’s work present an enigma: the famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris lost its glorious treasures to the leaps of fire; so is the photograph of statue outside the Buckingham Palace, glorious yet stoic.

Kabeer Ramesh’s photographic imagery thus represents the indomitable human spirit, and also cautions against the unreasonable, erratic human desire to colonize. Importantly his works show that all human boundaries, all boundaries, are illusive,  porous and imaginary. One could easily cross over the meaning universe and find multiple meanings through acts and ways of seeing and looking, in varied times and spaces.
