Eye of the Soul - Art Exhibition

Four passionate artists in four different mediums are joining our hands together to interpret our ‘eye of the soul’. The four artists’ being Anil Kumar, Kumar P Mookkuthala Satheesh Vellinezhi and myself. It’s happening in Durbar Hall Art Gallery, Kochi from 13 March to 19 March from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. The event is going to be inaugurated by one of the Living Legends and my beloved Guru, Artist T Kaladharan, tomorrow at 11:30 am. Kaladharan Sir, himself, is a great visionary in the field of arts. His name and contribution is indispensable and synonymous with arts in the current scenario particularly in Kerala, as is revered and recognized by everyone.

‘Eye of the Soul’ expresses the vision of four artists in four different mediums. 
“The soul has been given its own ears to hear things the mind does not understand” 
– says Rumi 
And we, the artists', totally agree with this saying. It is with this intention that we have stirred and explored our souls and revealed our visions while becoming a medium ourselves. 

My series is called the 'Eye of the Soul' - the title was then adapted to the whole show which in gist means imagination. My space is a mix of art and poetry that I wrote between 2013 and 2016. Art, for me, is a personal exploration particularly at the present phase of life. While being subjective I have tried to be objective...paradoxical? Not much if you go through my concept note...I welcome each and everyone in the city and else where if you happen to be in Kochi, do visit our concludes on Mar 19th.

Hope to see you during the coming week. 
Happy Day friends.

Edit: PS:
My first co-ordinated/curated show where I took the initiative to bring all of us, artists from Palakkad, together. All of them were extremely helpful to make this vision a reality. It was a huge success and it helped me to inch forward with a new-found confidence.
Thank you Anil etta, Kumar etta and Satheesh. Thanks to everyone who supported me in fulfilling my dream.
