‘Loving Vincent’ Review: A Breath-Taking Tribute to Van Gogh

In the world’ s first fully oil-painted feature film, the artist’s paintings come to life with dream-like surrealism. Multitudes had been eagerly awaiting the screening of Loving Vincent at Mumbai Film Festival 2017 and greeted it with the most thunderous applause I’ve heard so far. The film is a spellbinding homage; of a kind that few can ever hope to match. Over 65,000 frames have been hand-painted by 100 artists from around the world over a period of 7 years, to make it. There was a feeling in the air that we were all witness to a significant moment in cinematic history.

Ahmedabad Art Weekly #130

This is the last week before the auspicious Diwali. Diwali is time to spend time with family and use all the creativity and aesthetic sense to decorate homes and make them welcoming for goodness to enter our homes! Since there will be very few happenings, AAW will not be published in the upcoming week. Diwali is an opportunity to bond with positivity, and we at Creative Yatra would like to wish you and your family an enriching and prosperous Diwali! This week’s Art Weekly inspiration is the legendary Gujarati poet Akha Bhagat, who wrote his satirical poems in a six-stanza signature style calling them Chhappa. The 17th-century virtuoso writer came to Ahmedabad from Jetalpur and became a goldsmith by profession. But with an inspiration borrowed by pundit Gokulnath poet Akha started writing the Bhakti geet philosophy and wrote 746 invaluable Chhappa. Few of his notable works include Panchikiran, Chittavichar Samvad, Gurushishya Samvad, and Anubhav Bindu....

  That Gujarati-speaking amateurs get together for a difficult experimental theatre production in Hindi even while the mainstream Gujarati theatre, touch wood, has been of late shaping pretty well, is a sign of courage and a labour of love. Meri Favourite Shirt, which is a dramatization of actor-writer Manav Kaul’s short story, is contemporary in…

Hindol Brahmbhatt’s aesthetic instinct creates a never-seen-before version of the seen-by-all forms of Indian gods and goddesses. Unique in its medium and technique, the show is a fascinating experience of Brahmbhatt’s exceptional perceptiveness. Hear what his artworks at his solo show ‘Voice of Silence’ have to whisper.
