A group of fifteen talented artists from Hyderabad are recreating the magic of ‘Deccani charm’ in Delhi at an art camp organised by Gallery Easel Stories. 

Gallery Easel Stories believes in celebrating art forms from different parts of India, the curator of the show Akshay Chandra explains, “Artist residency programme is our leading initiative here at Easel Stories. To be surrounded by some of India’s most talented artists and watch them work is like a dream come true for me. Most of the artists are well known within their regions.

The present event aims at bringing them beyond their own territory and giving them a chance to get exposure in the field. And, the local viewers get an opportunity to appreciate works of varied aesthetic and emotional strengths. The present camp is completely Hyderabad centric; we have a few senior artists as well as a group of younger talent.”

Well known artist Fawad Tamkanat shares his experience, “It is a pleasure to be a part of the event as the gallery believes in promoting artists purely based on their artistic merits and proficiency. We all are happy to be representing Hyderabad and we look forward to the show which will be planned after Diwali.” Ramesh Gorjala, who is immensely loved for his tradition inspired works, agrees with equal enthusiasm.

Bhaskar Rao is working on his series of Tree of Life for the camp. His works are loved for their strong effervescence, flamboyant richness and subtle, quiet spiritualism. On the other hand, Sreekanth Kurva says about his experience, “My inner feelings are getting expressed on canvas as I’m trying to do something I have never tried before.” Quite similarly, Farhad Tamkanat declares that one of his works is completed and he has already started working on another one. He says, “I am looking forward to a lot of art related events that will get initiated by interacting with various galleries and art connoisseurs.” 

Equally enthusiastic about their work, artists Rajshree Nayak and L. Saraswathi are making a remarkable impression through their creative and expressive strengths in the camp. Saraswathi is known for her works which are highly inspired by Indian mythology. Her work in the camp is an extension of her regular genre. Rajshree, who is known for her women centric works, is creating an intricate, yet bold expression of her contemplation and belief about womanhood.
