Mobel Grace in collaboration with Gallery Stupa 18 present Jugalbandi – an art exhibition that brings together paintings and art inspired furniture. The artists who are part of the show include Sudhir Tailang, Alka Raghuvanshi, Vilas Kulkarni, Shridhar Iyer, Manisha Gawade, Partha Sengupta, Anita Kulkarni and Ranjit Singh.
The show is on from March 20 to April 15 at 343 Sultanpur, near Pillar NO 28-B, Sultanpur Metro Station in the Capital.
The show is a jugalbandi of furniture and paintings as they co-exist together in our spaces. “Art used in private and public spaces in residences and offices must have a balance of aesthetics so that their common link is visible. Paintings are integral part of interior designing and we strongly recommend it.
“In this show we have tried juxtaposing them together so that the two can be viewed in unison and we have chosen art works that speak the same language as our furniture,” says the interior designer Meenakshi Goyal and director Mobel Grace.
“The artists featured in this show all believe that the elements of paintings and furniture work in tandem to bestow a unique character to space. Alka Raghuvanshi’s vibrant and metallic colours add grandeur to the space. Anita Kulkarni’s works showcase passionately flowing colours which breaks the monotony of straight lined walls. Manisha Gawade’s lingering and bold lines blended with sophisticated colours hold the viewers thoughts,” says Varsha Bansal, director of Gallery Stupa 18.
Similarly Shridhar Iyer’s elegance radiates energy and blends with the space wonderfully.
Vilas Kulkarni unifies the traditional as well as modern to compliment the natural shades of the space. Sudhir Tailang’s pithy drawings are perfect for the study and coffee table area where one can ponder upon life experiences.
Ranjeet Singh’s paintings capture the expression of children portrayed in bright hues. Partha
Sengupta’s bold and expressive countenances are energetic and reflect people’s personality.
“Art has a universal language that it can be experienced by all those who view it. Given India’s vast history and culture of paintings dating back to cave paintings from Bhimbetka they are an integral element to energise spaces – be they work arenas or home spaces.
“Art can either be a statement or can blend sympathetically with a room’s design and colour palette. It is a way of personalizing a space,” says Deepak Goyal, the managing director Mobel Grace.
