Kalakriti Art Gallery on Road No. 10, Banjara Hills, is organising an exhibition of drawings and paintings in miniature style by Rayana Giridhar Gowd, till 1st March. A collection of gesso-work drawings, paintings with earth pigments and gold, comprises his works here.

The gesso-work drawings are unique in the sense that these miniatures are not drawn with pencils or pens as per the prevalent practice, but with hairline brush strokes which requires painstaking concentration. Giridhar is probably the only one in the country who practices this art form. Most of these drawings have been drawn on mythological themes, and a few on nature, animals and birds.

The paintings too are wonderfully done with earth pigments and gold on paper. Gowd uses natural colors derived from mud or earth particles, and the combinative colors are amazingly correlated. Thin films of gold are applied on the paintings to give them a mythological touch, akin to the Tanjavur style. The devotion of the artist towards God and the art can be judged by the paintings on display.

Gowd is a BFA from the Chama Rajendra Academy of Visual Arts, Mysore University. He also has technical training in mural paintings, Jaipur frescos, Italian frescos and Tempera techniques from Banasthal Vidyapeeth, Tonk, and a Post-Graduate degree in Fine Arts from M S University, Baroda. He was part of the making a historical documentary (a video film), Kanaka Darshanam, for Janapada And Yakshagana Academy, Bangalore.

Gowd has also exhibited his art in various solo exhibitions at the Sakshi Gallery in Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai, the Alliance Francaise of Hyderabad, and the Kalahitha Art Foundation, besides at group shows at the Cymroza Art Gallery in Mumbai, the Sakshi Gallery in Bangalore and Mumbai, the Sri Dharani Gallery in New Delhi, and the Air Gallery of London, as also at New York, Yangoon and Sri Lanka. Has been awarded by the Lalitha Kala Kendram, Bapatla, in 1986, and the Department of Fine Arts, Mysore, in 1989; and with the Telugu University Scholarship for an M A in Fine Arts, Hyderabad, in 1991, and the Kanoria Centre For Arts Fellowship, Ahmedabad, in 1992.
