‘Calliscrolls’ – Indian Calligraphy by Achyut Palav

Wednesday, May 25, 2011
By Arkay

Achyut  Palav has successfully worked in fusing calligraphy with performing arts. His life’s mission has been to propagate Indian scripts. He says Indian calligraphy has a great demand in foreign countries.

Achyut Palav will be touring London and Germany for a week. In London, his works will be shown at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. The exhibition is titled: Calliscrolls – Calligraphic Manifestation of Energy.

Indian Calligraphy is much appreciated in the West. Its rich and ornate nature appeals the most. The compositions from scripture and script are popular. In the exhibition which will be taken abroad, there will be about 25 works of art. The theme is Urja the energy from the cosmos and also ‘Gita’. The Creations resonate the eternal power of the Gita Verses that relate to “Karma” and the energy resulting from the universe.

The term ‘Calliscrolls’ is coined from the phrase “Calligraphy on scrolls. Since the ancient times, the scrolls of various mediums have been used to store information regarding royal messages, accounts of valour and royal correspondence.

Scrolls are not only popular in India but have been greatly used in the early Roman, Greek and Egyptian culture. Thus the compositions are presented in the form of the Khalita/Schroll instead of the usual frames. It adds to the grandeur of the art and also takes you back to the times.

Last week a preview was held at the Tao Art Gallery.
