Self-taught artist Om Swami is showcasing his new collection of paintings, called Divine Sutra. The acrylics are painted in bright, bold colours and he has used flutes, flowers, butterflies and the moon to create a surreal feel. Om says, “My acrylics are painted in vibrant colours and even though no movement is depicted, one is able to feel the energy within each painting. The ‘She’ highlighted in my paintings is a comprehensive revision of certain traditional aspects like the archaic woman, who has been part of human consciousness for thousands of years.”

Calligraphy paintings by Ram Kasture
Veteran artist Ram Kasture is presenting Adayakshar, a collection of calligraphy paintings that have been inspired by Vedic literature. Ram says, “It was a challenging mission for me. The essence of the ancient wisdom and philosophical tradition expressed through the riches was transferred to the canvas. I pondered over the best of these — Rig-Veda, Yajur-Veda, Sam-Veda and Atharva-Veda and finally executed them artistically. Visualising and painting the quintessential Vedic culture is definitely an overwhelming task for any person.”
