For both the eye and mind

Staff Reporter



GENTLE FUN:About 50 select caricatures by Shankar Pamarthy are on display till December 31 at the Indian Cartoon Gallery in Bangalore.

Bangalore: “The hallmark of a great caricature is that even a layman will be able to identify the personality in it. Caricatures should be an identifiable portrait,” said Chiranjiv Singh, president of Alliance Francaise de Bangalore, here on Saturday.

Speaking after inaugurating an exhibition of caricatures by Shankar Pamarthy at the Indian Cartoon Gallery, Mr. Singh said: “The works of Mr. Pamarthy are truly hilarious: one of the best cartoon exhibitions that the Indian Institute of Cartoonists (IIC) has ever witnessed.”

Pointing out that a caricature appeals to both the eye and mind, Mr. Singh, who is also the former Indian Ambassador to Unesco, said caricatures should be good-natured and not malicious.

“The finest example of that are Mr. Pamarthy's works,” he said.

On display are a wide range of caricatures of politicians, sports stars, icons of the silver screen and musicians.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Pamarthy expressed his gratitude to the IIC for giving him an opportunity to exhibit his caricatures. V.G. Narendra, president of the IIC, also spoke.

About 50 select caricatures by Mr. Pamarthy are on display till December 31 at the Indian Cartoon Gallery, No. 1 Midford Gardens, behind Big Kids Kemp, off M.G. Road, Bangalore.
