The Vivid World art show at Tao Art Gallery showcases the strong language of figurative work of expressionism. Works of well known artists such as Paresh Maity, Gogi Saroj Pal, Arpana Caur, Jagdish Chander, Samir Mondal as well as young painters a Sunil Padwal, Debashish Dutta, are on display. Each painting seemed to complement the other while still managing to stand out on their own.
Speaking about the show, Kalpana Shah, owner of Tao Art Gallery says, “The world on these canvases is so vivid, so real, so intense and full of varied expressions! At times one feels like visiting another world, a world from our dreams, a world of pure perception, rich, alive, self-sufficient, and full… at the same time one finds himself as a part of it somewhere. This is the true beauty of this show.”
Among the guests present were Ali Akbar Mehta, Lalitha Lajmi with her daugher Kalpana Lajmi, Subhash Awchat and Radhika Goenka.
