Imagine an art with boundless appeal – The Natu Mistry Show at Hutheesing Centre displays over a 100 of such art works. No matter who its audience is, regardless of where it will be portrayed; these artworks will soothe each one’s sight with its serene aesthetics. Subtle and straightforward, the art works are a wondrous depiction of heritage ambience on canvas by the maestro Natu Mistry at his Solo Show, that opened on May 4, 2017, and will continue till May 14, 2017; between 4 pm to 8pm. The show was inaugurated by young business leader Siddharth Bhandari of Electrotherm and was visited by most of the senior artists from Ahmedabad and around.
Natu Mistry, who completed his Bachelors of Fine Arts from CN School for Fine Arts, Ahmedabad prolonged his further studies in Visual Arts at JJ School of Arts, Mumbai. He has worked as a cartoonist as well as an Interior designer within his extensive career span. Paintings happened to him in the later years of his career, and since then, he has received lot of admiration from the art community.
We caught up with Natubhai at the inauguration and this is what he had to share, “It has been more than 25 years that I have been reflecting heritage elements in my paintings, but I was attached to them even before they were considered heritage.” The simplicity in his paintings reflects his simple lifestyle and a constant effort to connect with a larger audience through his art.
Mistry’s experience as an Interior designer is reflected in his paintings – the use of multiple perspectives – is an example of it. This accords a spatial depth and atmospherics to his paintings. His key elements are detailed, but not intricate or complex and allow the viewer to empathise with the artist’s thought.
The exhibition is a gilded opportunity for collectors since Mistry has got something for everyone. Apart from the 30 odd 3ft x 3ft oils, a portfolio of Mistry’s original works is also launched on the occasion. These are simple yet exquisite art pieces, conveniently priced for the new or first time buyers to venture into original art collection.
Find time to visit the show and wander in the heritage landscapes of these works.
