Indian Art gallery G exhibiting the original paintings of Legend Raja Ravi Varma


The original artworks of masters like Raja Ravi Varma, C Raja Raja Varma, Abanindranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy and Binod Behari Mukherjee are being showcased by the Sandeep and Gitanjali Maini Foundation at their gallery in Bengaluru.

The exhibition titled The Masters & The Modern, An Amalgamation of Old and New World Classics features unique paintings that were bought by private collectors and never presented before anywhere.

Interestingly, these artworks have been insured by the foundation because they are of high value and safeguarded at the gallery G.

The art patrons who would like to view these paintings can virtually visit the Sandeep & Gitanjali Maini Foundation gallery on Google Arts and Culture.

Gitanjali Maini, Founder Trustee of Sandeep and Gitanjali Maini Foundation said, “It’s been 18 years since we have been working diligently, and silently, to help art and artists survive in a hard and sometimes harsh ecosystem. In the process, we took on projects of historical and cultural significance as well. A country’s artistic community will not flourish if there aren’t enough patrons around. Sometimes buying and collecting art is not enough, and one has to do a lot more to keep the creative ecosystem thriving in a country. I hope people will be encouraged by the work we have done through SGMF and open their hearts to this extremely talented community of creative individuals,” she said. 

What makes this exhibition special? 

Well, for starters, the exhibition explains the story behind each painting and photograph. A picture that says a thousand words, has never been more relevant than it is in this case as each work of art conveys a story and has a own history.

Apart from the master artworks, the gallery is exhibiting the work done by Bollywood actor Salman Khan.  

A few years ago, Salman Khan surprised his fans by displaying his artistic skills for the first time in 2009 in Dubai for a preferred audience and sold out the entire collection. 

Following this warm response, he began on a journey to evolve his artwork. Now, 11 years later, his Mother Teresa painting is on display at the gallery. The actor intends to donate all proceeds from his art to charity.

The gallery is also showcasing a few images from photo artist Shibu Arakkal’s work, Boatmen of the Kumbh. These images document the untold story of the fast-vanishing community of boatmen who are integral to the ethos and ecosystem of India’s Kumbh Mela. 

Work by other artists such as Valsan Koorma Kolleri, Bara Bhaskaran, Subrat Kumar Behra, Bose Krishnamachari, and other arts are on display.

The exhibition is open until March 10, 2021, at gallery G, Lavelle Road, Bangalore.
