Among many festivals ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ is a widely celebrated festival in Goa. The Ganesh Festival is nearer and a thought came up to our mind to have an art show dedicated to Shree Ganesha. Thus, we all decided to have an exhibition and started working on the project”
As an artists i try to reflect my attachment with nature through paintings. Spontaneous flow of natural elements can be seen in my most of the artworks displayed here” states Siddharth.
Vasudev told that ” Ganesha is adorned by all and is a favourite God of children as well as elders. For this particular show we all have tried to keep the prices of paintings very affordable so that a common man can afford to purchase any artwork he liked. Whatever I see around me, such nature, goan culture, architecture is reflected in my paintings.
This exhibition is a pictorial offerings to lord Ganesha. We have tried toto experiment and explore the various forms of Ganesh using different techniques with very colourful and innovative ideas. I have tried to portray Ganesha through a different perspective and conceptualised his association with us” states Praveen.
