Suresh Pushapangathan and Jince Varghese -two likeminded artists joined hands in a bid to create recognition for Indian artists through a venture called 'Vivada', which means 'diversely unite artists'.

'Vivada' was conceptualised by Suresh Pushpangathan when he was living in the United Kingdom, pursuing his Master's Degree in visual arts. “Vivada is a venture that focuses on the idea of promoting Indian artists across the globe. I created the concept in London, and the exhibition based on it is happening there now, organised by our team 'Akarum'," says Suresh.

 

The ongoing exhibition in London showcases ten contemporary artists.

“These artists are based in different parts of the world like India, Russia, USA and UK. This exhibition in London revolves around the universal idea of unity in diversity. We are trying to bring the same concept to Kerala too. That's how I met artist Jince Varghese and together we planned the art show to provide an understanding about the concept of Vivida."

An exhibition showcasing Suresh's and Jince's art works is on at Durbar Hall in the city, as a prelude to their venture. While Suresh is bound by the theme of water lilies and lotus ponds, Jince focuses on natural and abstract concepts based on ideologies and believes.

“The venture is something similar to the Biennale. We are planning to conduct art shows across the country and other parts of the world through this venture. We are trying to include more artists from our state, uniting them to create a strong art foundation," says Jince.

In future, the artist duo look forward to attracting more artists and sponsors to share the passion of art and organise art shows, around the globe.
