About art and more of fine art



Surreal: A painting on display at the annual art exhibition of Delhi College of Art.

Delhi College of Art is organising its 55th annual art exhibition at its Tilak Marg premises in the Capital beginning Wednesday, bringing together over a thousand works by students of Bachelors of Fine Arts and Masters of Fine Arts.

“The annual art exhibition of the college is much more than a mere display of selected works produced during the year. It showcases the thoughts, the beliefs, the passion and the struggle of the students on the road to creative self-expression. It is a summary of the various skills and techniques that they learn and explore throughout the year,” says College of Art Principal Vijayamohan.

“Over the 65 years of its existence, the college has nurtured many great teachers, artists and thinkers who have had the passion and vision to work for development of the aesthetic aspects of life,” he adds.

On up to March 20, the exhibition will showcase paintings in oil, water colours and mixed media among others.

The exhibition has been put together to provide upcoming artists an opportunity to experience the thrill and satisfaction of organising solo and group shows in future. It provides a “springboard” for the essential professional and commercial exposure in order to broaden their horizons.

The exhibition also includes prints produced through lithography, silkscreen and etching. These works explore the realms of both realism and abstraction. Etching, lithography and silk screen are important printmaking mediums used by artists from time to time. Students have displayed such printmaking mediums by combining traditional as well as modern techniques.

The exhibition will also showcase works by senior students of Fine Arts from other art colleges of the country. A special section will be dedicated to paintings, drawings and photographs taken by third year students while on their study tour of southern India earlier this year.
