Event Description : 
Art Life Gallery presents "Colours of rural India"​ an 11 day-long group show, by KV Shankar, Aman Sekhon and Sandeep Nayak.

Hailing the spring festival and harvest season, the Art Life Gallery has put up an 11-day long group show by three  talented artists Sandeep Nayak, Aman Sekhon and KV Shankar hailing from Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh and  Karnataka respectively. The show which began today will continue till February 13, 2017.

India is a land of unique festivals, retaining its culture and historical significance and the villages are no exception. Rural India boasts of some of the oldest and exceptional traditions that have grown as distinguished festivals that not only entertain but also speaks volumes about the Indian heritage and history. Even with the deep geographic divisions, the spirit and fervour with which Indian village festivals are celebrated, remain the same.       

"Our festivals are a combination of religious ceremonies, semi-ritual spectacles, worship, prayer, singing, kite flying and other activities of a traditional character . All this indicates a strong traditional background of rural India", says Pratibha Agarwal, founder and director of the Art Life Gallery.  

"Indian villages celebrate some of the unique festivals that reflect the rural charm and simplicity of the Indians. Every village of India is special for its particular fair and festivals which are, again a celebration of life and colours of joy," adds Agarwal.

"The culture and the festivals of  North India are closely associated with the sacred rivers passing through various states. In my paintings, I have extensively used yellow colour for this spring season . Most of the festivals like Vasant Panchmi, Makar Sankranti and Diwali  that are celebrated across whole of North India, colours like red and yellow are prominently used," says Aman Sekhon who hails from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh.

"We in Jharkhand  have festivals like Durga Puja, Kali Puja, Rath Yatra which are diverse but have a common thread running through them in the  eastern parts of  India. For example during the month of sawan or the monsoons, green is the colour of the month when women wear green bangles. So basically, even i have used shades of green in my works to denote fertility," says Sandeep Nayak who is from Jharkhand.

According to KV Shankar, "my art works are a reflection of the Onam, Pongal and numerous other festivals which have a generous measure of music and dance. And of course, do not forget the bright festive hues related to coconut preparations." Shankar is a senior artist from Mysore in Karnataka. So, it is not just our villages and their festivals but the entire country is bound by colours of love of Mother India.
