The Kalahitha Art Foundation is presenting Ananda, an exhibition of calligraphic works by Poosapati Parameshwara Raju, from 3rd to 12th October, at the art gallery premises in Nagarjuna Hills. The exhibition showcases a selection of his works created over 20 years of practice.
The series starts with his earlier works on mythological iconography depicting Ganesha, Shiva, Surya, Hanuman, Vishnu, Narasimha and Panchayatana, after which the forms noticeably become more abstract in nature as in Shiva and Parvathi on Nandi, Lakshmi and Saraswati, Ganesh and Kumaraswamy, and 108 Aums.
The festive flames of Diwali are revealed in the series Radiant Flow. Benign Perch showcases a series of trees created by the artist following his visit to Biligiri Ranganna Betta, Karnataka.
