A travelling art exhibition showcasing over 75 works from 15 artists
from south India and currently on view at a gallery in New Delhi, will make its
second and third stop in Chennai and Singapore respectively, next year.
Exhibited at the Art Spice Gallery, the show ‘Masters of South’ has
these participating artists: G Raman, P Gnana, A Viswam, K R Karthikeyan,
Village Mookkaiya, N Manoharan, M Jayakumar, Ravilaks, Rekha Senthoor, Aneefa,
M Raja, D Tiroumale, Shanmugam, T G Thayumanavan and G Gangatharan.
“I believe artists from the south (of India) have a greater grip on
their work, and they price their artworks affordably, something within the
reach of commoners,” said gallery curator Babita Gupta. “The exhibition is a
good resource to understand the subtle differences between the lives of people
in the north and south. For instance, there is a subtle difference between the
villages of the two regions, which can be observed through paintings,” Gupta
‘Masters of South’ will be displayed at Chennai’s Focus Art Gallery and
Singapore (location yet to be decided) starting next year, she said. In Delhi,
it will be open for public viewing till January 15, 2019. – Agencies
