Nilesh Ingle, Ayesha Mujawar & Rohan Koli
A man on the expedition to peace and humanity has to cross many passages. The journey brings with it windlike changes yet many traditions, rituals and warped mentality successfully prevail.
Nilesh articulates his thoughts on humanity through his art. He does not only depict feminine beauty but he also personifies their tolerance and strength in his art.
He ponders about universal peace. He tries to find Sidhartha in the maze of messy thoughts with closed eyes. Everyone tries to find this Sidhartha. Some succeed in the search, while others still keep searching.
Ayesha expresses herself firmly in her art. Renowned artists’ influence can be seen in her art but her art is a freedom speech. She is distinctive in this reagrd. She talks about individuality. She effuses colour as if exhaling fire and expressses the oppression women have to face in the society she comes from. Fortunately her family never tried to shackle her. It’s also appreciative that they let her express her feelings about injustice and opression.
Her art reveals the freedom of colours. She desires her art not be chained in any shade, tone or texture. Morever, her art embodies her spirit. May her art breath unfettered where colours, shape and strokes will dance freely.
Rohan opines on his existance and the esse of his favourite things in the society through the paintings. His paintings talk about humans, their existence and their feelings and emotions.
A butterfly has a very short lifespan yet it spreads nothing but sheer happiness. It is exquisite but ephemeral. Likewise many things are beautiful and transient. Rohan presents the thought that we should try to perpetuate all these things.
Rohan is a literature lover. He likes Grace. He says that he paints the esoteric of Grace’s poetry. He insists that paintings shouldn’t be dycrypted to the beholder. Instead the beholder should try to connect with the painting. The beholder should try to understand the painting from the horizons of his perspectives. And he is not wrong in his opinion, after all didn’t C.S. Lewis say the same thing – “What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing.”
