Tribute to M F Husian

Dated: 14-09-2009

Writer/Contributed by: Pradeep Chandra


Photographer’s Tribute To An Artist on His 94th Birthday

 

 

 

The Artist:                  M F Husain

The Photographer:     Pradeep Chandra

The Date:                   Sep 17, 2009

The Gift:                     First Glimpse of ‘M F Hussain:

                                    A Pictorial Tribute’ – A unique hard-bound coffee table book on the Artist.

 

 

Sep 14, Mumbai: M F Husain doesn’t always celebrate his birthday. On one occasion Husain slept through his birthday, blissfully unaware that it was his birthday. But his 94th birthday will truly be a special occasion. Celebrity photographer and writer, Pradeep Chandra will gift him the ‘first glimpse’ of the coffee table book – M F Hussain: A Pictorial Tribute – authored by him.

 

 

The book is a unique compilation of photographs, paintings and poems on Husain with exclusive contributions made by many accomplished artists. “Visually rich and aesthetically produced, it contains rare pictures and anecdotes of Hussainsaab,” discloses Chandra, whose previous book AB- The Legend was rated as one of the ten best books known for its looks. The Bachchan book recently marked a record sale of 4000 copies.

 

 

“What motivated me to pay this tribute to Husain is the kind of energy and passion he displays: for life and as well as his art. What he does with colours and the speed with which he paints is admirable. I am inspired as much by the personality of M F Husain as his art. His jovial personality and his eye for photography is awe-inspiring,”

 

 

Pradeep Chandra has been closely associated with M F Husain for over three decades and has captured some very special moments of the latter’s life.

 

 

There are several books written on Husain, but this book is more of a gift than a mere publication. It is not only a tribute to Husain but for all those who admire and appreciate art.

 

 

The barefoot painter has always been known for his ordinary lifestyle and practical approach. “On his 75th birthday he was invited by Fankar Group to a show at Devlalikar Art Gallery . Husain exhibited his 20 serigraphs at this show. He later invited 20 college students at the show. He asked all the 20 student to stand under one painting each. As the show opened, he announced that each serigraph will be given to the students standing below the painting,” adds Chandra.

Tum Mile

Dated: 29-10-2009

Writer/Contributed by: Press release


Tum Mile paintings unveiled at an art exhibition

 

 

 

 

The paintings were specially created for and used in the film

 

 

 

 

It would be quite surprising for some to find actors, directors and producers promoting their film in an art gallery – but not when your lead actor plays a role of an artist.

The cast & crew of Tum Mile was present at Sanjay Wadhwa’s Tulika Arts Gallery  for an exhibition which showcased the paintings – created by artist Saillesh Acharekar - which were created and used specially for Tum Mile. In the movie – Emraan plays the role of an artist – these paintings were showcased in the film as part of his work. Tum Mile is scheduled to storm the theatres all across on 13th November, 09.

Mahesh Bhatt, Emraan Hashmi, Soha Ali Khan and director Kunal Deshmukh graced the elite event. Mahesh Bhatt said, “An art exhibition is a very unusual place when it comes to promoting a film – but in case of Tum Mile, these paintings are an integral part of the film. At critical points in the story, these paintings portray what Emraan’s character is feeling. The magic lies in the way Kunal and Saillesh have captured the essence of the character in these paintings…when you see the film, you will see it actually looks like a painting created by Emraan’s character at that point!”

Agrees Emraan Hashmi, “These paintings are not only beautiful, but capture and convey my character’s feelings through out the film. I also need to thank Saillesh for showing me the nuances of an artist's body language – especially his hands – when he’s painting. Little things like this give a lot of depth and authenticity to a character one plays.”

The highlight of the exhibition was a 3-D painting – with ‘Tum Mile’ as a theme - created by Saillesh Acharekar. In a 3-D painting, the image changes when a viewer changes its perspective – for eg when one sees an image from the left, keeps seeing it and moves to the right, the image changes. “Very few artists get a chance wherein their work is showcased on a scale as prestigious and huge as this. The least I could do to thank Kunal for this opportunity is create something special and memorable. I believe this is the first 3-D painting in created around a film theme”, says Saillesh.

The proprietor of Tulika Arts Gallery, Mr. Sanjay Wadhwa said, “It’s a privilege that we can simultaneously associate with a film as prestigious as Tum Mile, and an artist as talented as Saillesh. It’s very encouraging to know that people now are being exposed to art – deemed as niche – through more popular media like films. It just gives a whole new dimension to this industry.”

An excited Soha Ali Khan, who was captured in various moods across many paintings in the exhibition, says, “It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be a part of such beautiful paintings. I would like to thank and congratulate Kunal and Saillesh for so beautifully capturing my mood and expressions. It’s truly a special moment for me – as these paintings are indeed a unique way for remembering.

Shiva - Redefining The Divine

Dated: 04-03-2013

Writer/Contributed by: Press Release


Reha Shishodia brings out the message in her series of Shiva paintings.

Reha questions passionately and incessantly until her explorations evolve into crystallised creativity. She has unlimited enthusiasm and her paintings are worth a thousand words.
Her style is very unique as she works on mixed media and her work is greatly inspired by Lord Shiva, The Auspicious One.

Reha explains that Shiva has eight forms namely earth, water, ether, fire, air, sun, moon and soul which is why he is also addressed as the Ashtamurthy and she has managed to balance all forms in her work. She believes that to merge with Shiva, one has to follow the path of wisdom.

She is awe struck by the image of Lord Shiva as it stands apart from those of other deities. She takes the artistic liberty of remoulding it from her perspective using symbols that form the basic entity of the Great One. Her work portrays that divinity exists so that we as mortals get to reshape it as and how we see fit.

All her work stays true to her belief and carries the single most important message that divinity is within us and even when we perish, it carries on, well beyond eternity.

How To Buy Your First Piece of Art

Dated: 02-09-2013
Source: Times of India



Buying Art isn't  as easy as walking into an art show or gallery and picking up the first painting you like. In fact, shopping for your first piece can be rather intimidating. How to start? What to buy? Where to put it? There's a science involved in how you make an investment in art.

Inculcate a taste in art :
Walk around galleries. meet artists, talk to them, study their medium and work. Says artist Arpana Caur, "Find out what kind of art you like. The best way to do develop a curiosity and taste for art. Visit museums, galleries, speak to artists, critics and figure out your personal tastes. You should also try to develop an interest in different styles, periods and methods. The internet is a great source of information on art. You clould do a reserch on art and prices here." Visit art cafes as they are great places to look at pieces of art and hobnob with people from the art world. Says Ashish Anand, of DAG (Delhi Art Gallery), " Make sure you research the credibility of the galleries, meet the art advisory on who are the upcoming artists. Find out how important and significant is the artist's work. Don't let someone sell you a crappy, irrelevant piece of art for Rs.10 lakh."

Check out every piece yourself :
Once your reserch is over, check out all the pieces yourself. Says Siddhartha Tagore of Art Konsult," You should personally check out the art piece, rather than picking them up on the internet. Study the artwork of the artist and how it has evolved in the last five years. Talk to the dealers about the artist, has his art appreciated? Howe many awards has he won and shows he's had? Has the artist got a degree from a reputed college? He Should have a minimum of five years of experience. Ask for an authenticity certificate."

Plan your budget :
Calculate exactly how much you are willing to invest. Don't regret, if you overspend. You sould study how the money in art market works. Says Anu bajaj of Art Positive. " Some art that is bought in the primary market will be less valuable than in the secondary market (Which is privately owned). You must reserch the reputation of the gallery you buy from. Ask for information about the artist. Period works of an artist will cost more. You must also be aware of the hidden costs, like insurance, framing, shipping ect. You must check if there is a premium cost on the art piece. Ask the gallery for a discount, don't blindly go in for the sticker price." If you plan on becoming a serious collector, start documenting your art from the first buy itself.

Make space for art in your home :
Declutter your walls to flaunt the piece of art. Says interior designer Manjeet Bhullar, " After you bring the art home, make sure there isn't anything else in the wall and the lighting is done in a way to highlight the artwork."

 Buy what you like; don't always buy for investment :
The appreciation in the art market is influenced by a lot of factors, so don't always buy for appreciation, buy what you like. Says Anu Bajaj, " Buy what you love. Liquidity is tough but you should never regrat having a particular art piece."

Check the documentation with the artwork :
Ask the gallery for a condition and authenticity report. Says artist Kiran Pindir of Artaroma. " It's essential to check the documents that come with the artist's work, they are essential, one should check them thoroughly."
