It sometimes feels like a fairytale, glancing white walls full of design formations, based numerous themes, billions of colours and nymphet sculpturing figures. A situation totally resembling all human feelings and emotions within a single shot. This is what you will experience while entering the KCA gallery, where the foundation students exhibited their artworks forms as a part of their culmination event. The event is inaugurated by the famous RJ Vashishth from Radio Mirchi Vadodara on May 4, 2016, which will conclude by May 8, 2016 and the timings for visitors during the event has been reserved as 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
A famous quote by Teal Swan, a popular modern day painter, says “Every breath you breathe is more paint on the canvass of this life that you are creating. You cannot say that life is pointless because art is never pointless.” Creative Yatra has always defined art and creativity as an essential part in every individual’s life. It may be a little ticklish but, CY considers canvas as one of the best spreadsheet for calculating every statistics of life. Imagine yourself in the middle of hundreds of spreadsheets hanging around you. This is an actual view of KCA Gallery right now. Young and enthusiastic artists, who have pursued art as their future career or as an enamouring hobby, have presented their artworks in public there.
The presenting artwork reflects following course learnings of the students: Drawings (sketching, nature study, still life, life study, perspective drawing), paintings (watercolour, dry pastels, oil pastels, tempera, oil and acrylic) printmaking (woodcut), sculptures (clay modelling, mould and casting) and pottery (handmade red terracotta).
Every piece of art was desperately yelling its artist’s mind. The hanging portraits of human figures displayed a mundane of life or a joyous smile of unknown. The ethnic paintings with a contemporary mood resembled a timeline feature from spirituality to mythology to modern warfare. Sketching displaying beautiful stills of nature and also the dark part, where human try to impair it. A few paintings also displayed entertainment sector of modern day with characters framing ironman, Doraemon and other fictional identities.
The normal or burnt terracotta and POP formations had a dynamic nature of sculptures and jewellery beautifully engraved and painted with other materials.
The show has given a short message to everyone, ‘get inspired’. It is never late to learn and never early to showcase the learning. the foundation students have definitely inspired Creative Yatra and its viewers. We would strongly suggest every man, woman and child to personally visit and experience the glory.
