"The artists will create works of art to mark diplomatic ties between the two nations. These painters will work together while drawing inspiration from each other's background and tradition among other things," said Sanjeev Bhargava, Founder Director of SEHER.
The paintings that will be created at the camp, will depict different styles of paintings ranging from contemporary to impressionist to modern and traditional. The artists will participate in several interactions during the day thereby facilitating the exchange and profound understanding of each other's practices. "Art helps in binding people from different backgrounds and nationalities together. It is one of the best forces to bring harmony, peace, and beauty around people," Bhargava explained.
