Binoy Varghese - Artists for Kerala
Acclaimed artist Binoy Varghese, Founder of Kekkeyellam Foundation presents Green- Line for the Kerala Flood Relief Show by bringing together more than 108 artists.
Varghese has worked very hard to bring together a plethora of artworks created in the studios of many artists.
Showcasing the collection of paintings by senior, eminent and contemporary artists, the exhibition puts forth the various facets of life, nature, culture and religious thoughts.
An amalgamation of artworks by over 100 artists of Indian origin from across the world, the exhibition features names like George Martin, Seema Kohli, Gopinath Subbanna, Kalam Patua, Niladri Paul, Sudip Roy, Vishal Joshi amongst others.
With a vision of bringing together art beyond boundaries, the exhibition will provide a common ground to raise the funds for Kerala flood relief.
Varghese does the impossible by bringing together more than 100 works some in the small and medium format-there is realism, figurative and abstract works. Amongst abstractionists, one of the finest is the work of Vishal Joshi a deeply absorbing work that speaks of space and contour and spirituality.
The four day show touches upon the thought of art as a medium to raise funds for a cause close to everyone's heart.
Through the show, it is aimed that the much-needed shelter is provided to the victims who have lost their near and dear and earning family members due to the unprecedented torrential rain over a month in August 2018 in Kerala. Each artist has donated one piece of artwork to support this cause.
"The Artists community along with me want to do our best to support the Govt. of Kerala to help the people in need to rebuild their houses and start a new life. The entire sales procedure will go to Chief Minister's distress fund" says artist Binoy Varghese.
Sudip Roy the brilliant watercolourist says: The Kerala floods is a lesson for all of us we must not take life for granted, whatever we can do for others we must do. This is a contribution of heart and soul and that is what is most important."
Artist Kalam Patua believes that "This is a great step by our artist's community to help a bit for the Kerala flood victims and this is our responsibility as a citizen of the Country to help them".
The show opens on October 25 and runs till October 28, at Creativity Art Gallery, Hauz Khas.
