Art from Chitra Santhe...

Tomorrow, the 31st of January, 2010 is Chitra Santhe~ Art for all.

The one-day art event organized by Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath every year on Kumara Krupa Road.
This event showcases artists, painters & sculptors from all over India and where people can pick up art at a very affordable price.

Today, I want to share with all of you the unique pieces of art bought from very talented artists during the last few years that we have been visiting Chitra Santhe.
Watercolours by M.G. Hegde from Bijapur.
Mixed Media folk art from a young artist from Shimoga.
Madhubani paintings by a folk artist. Ardha-narishwar & Goddess Kali (still waiting to be framed;-)
The two acrylic on canvas by Vishwas. M. picked up at last year's Chitra Santhe.
This is a lovely sketch made on old magazine sheets by Mr. M.U Raja

For more details on the event, do visit http://chitrasanthe.com/index.html

If you are in Bangalore tomorrow, do drop by this very colourful event:-)

amazing colours and detail Arch, loved the mixed media work by the artist from Shimoga. The vibrant hues of your walls are the perfect backdrop for the art.
