Exhibition Banaras

Purva Indulkar tells you about Banaras, an exhibition that offers an insight into the holy city

Jharkhand-born Arun Kumar Mishra paints what he can’t photograph and photographs what he can’t paint. In a career spanning over 30 years, his resume boasts of the names of esteemed publications including The Illustrated Weekly of India and off-shoots of the Times Group. If that didn’t give him enough bragging rights — his work has been featured in 19 group shows in art galleries across Mumbai, Pune, Delhi and Chandigarh. His latest solo show has been inspired by the holy city of Varanasi. Telling us about it, Arun says, “I wanted to show people Kashi, as I prefer to refer to Banaras as because of the Kashi Vishwanath Temple of Shiva. My idea was to depict a city that has more images than temples and ghats on the banks of the river Ganges.” The breathtaking black and white photographs highlight a series of facets of ordinary life in Banaras — simple yet captivating. Mishra has succeeded in reflecting the complexity in Varanasi by depicting people of different origins, the religious fervour and a constant tussle of tradition and modernity.
