Event Description: 
Rita Jhunjhunwala presents a beautiful confluence of poetry and paintings in her solo exhibition ‘Bheegi Lakeerein’

Curator: Dr. Alka Pande 

Chief Guest: Dr. Karan Singh

The art show is also presented through a coffee-table book, published by Om Books International. It features 40 poems by Rita Jhunjhunwala along with her paintings inspired by them. Bilingual in nature, with hindi verses transcreated into English, the book also features an in-depth essay by writer and art critic Prayag Shukla and a foreword by art historian and curator Dr. Alka Pande.

The 40 poems chosen for ‘Bheegi Lakeerein’ span four decades of her life. As she reflected upon them, the artist in her felt the urge to give them form on canvas, and hence 40 corresponding paintings were created by her for this exhibition. 
“Pure art knows no boundaries and this art show merges the lines, allowing me to bring two of my realms of expression together,” Shares the artist, Rita Jhunjhunwala.
The paintings for this series are mixed media on canvas. Choosing to be honest with every piece of corresponding poetry, Rita has not restricted herself to a particular medium or technique. This has resulted in varying styles, media, and textures like sand, gold foil, gauze, fabric, stamped handmade paper, charcoal dust, and many others. 
Rita’s earlier works have been exhibited through 21 solo and numerous group shows in various metros of India apart from countries like China, France, Italy, the U.K, and Switzerland. They have won her credit including the Soviet Land Nehru Award, medals in 35th Grand Prix International de Peinture de Deauville, France, 8th Gran Premio International Di-Pittura at Rome, and back home awarded by Rotary Club, Bhikuram Jain foundation, Sangeet Shymala, and Aparajita.
