Amdavad ni Gufa – Ahmedabad, India
Eleven contemporary artists displayed their work at the exhibition ‘Levitate’ organized at ‘The gallery’, Ahmedabad from 12th to 18th November, 2013. The display included paintings-oils, acrylic; printmaking-wood cutting, etching; sculptures-stone, metal; and mixed media work.  
Sunil Nimawat’s Wood Cut on Display
Sachin Dadhich’s Sculpture in Mixed Media
Rokesh Kumar Singh’s Stone Sculpture
The works of Rakesh kumar Singh and Sachin Dadichi explore the materials in interesting, unconventional ways. Sunal Nimawat’s ‘portrait’ combines the conceptual element and technique of woodcut beautifully.
Lalit Garg’s Paintings in Mixed Media
Arpit Biloria’s abstract expression ‘intersectional void’ is an interesting play of geometric planes and positive-negative spaces. 
Arpit Biloria’s Sculptures in Metal
Margee Patel ‘s series of birds and especially ‘the swans ‘has captured the grace, beauty and delicacy of birds in the hard medium of stone. 
Margee Patel’s Stone Sculptures
Apart from the diversity of mediums what is remarkable is the diversity of approaches amongst the artists.  It will be interesting to observe these artists through their journey in the art field.

January 30, 2012 § Leave a comment


The Ahmedabad city street walls are awash with a roit of colours.
The A.M.C recently organised an event to paint the blank walls on streets in Satellite, Maninagar (Kankaria) and near the University Ground.
 
Artists & locals from the city, as well as Artists from Kutch were invited to paint.

 
People Stopping by to watch the artists at work.

 
An interesting range of styles adorn the walls. 

 

 
It was great to see the space transform in a couple of days. The City definitely looks more lively and it’s great that the public gets of daily dose of art as they drive by .

That’s me at my best sharing a few jokes over a wonderful cup of  hot tea and coffee in the rain with dripping water drops that halted our work for a while contributing to this ‘break’ giving us a chance to get to know each other more closely.

                                                                    Shyam Pahapalkar :
Shyam is always the silent man around but a consistent artist at work all the time…very child unlike his appearance! a nice guy , soft spoken… yes his works speak silently of many things and he’s an artist in the true sense of the word. We love having him around.  Shyam has amazing love towards ‘Papier-mâché‘, n does magic with paper ……..u’ll see his works soon.

                                                                Saheb Ram Tudo:
This is my favorite individual Saheb Ram Tudo, who is in constant pursuit of some or the other art form from writing to drawing and illustrating to painting as well as sculpting.  he has an amazing body of work on display online, it is a visual treat. soon ill publish his links here on the blog.

 

Abhijit Paul: 

 This is Abhijit Paul at work, he’s absolutely fun to be with. to tel no show about him open this link.find it for urself, but thats not all wat he is , this is his past bachelors days.now he is a big deal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Eo_s9vl248

Asha Rawat:

…Yes talking about this one..i laugh first then of course have to say that she brings a lot of positive energy. with her it’s questions, confusions, fun masti, n lot of overlapping ideas that she keeps shooting randomly all around…..but dont take her lightly!  she is the heavy weight one in terms of work.
work, work n work…………work she is in love with . Painting all the time,  she wanted to do a lot of portraits of people but ended up being the favorite model for other artists at Artist Lounge……soon we will post her in all possible avatars penned down by all inhouse artists.wait for it…….

Thats all for this time … will introduce the others soon n more on these artists  in detail in the future.
