And if you've not gotten rich overnight by selling off your long-forgotten land on the outskirts for a fancy price, you can at least feel jealous of those who did, at Lakshana.

Lakshana Art Gallery is organising an exhibition of paintings by A Rajeshwar Rao, from 10th to 12th November. These latest works, about 21 paintings, showcase the crowded vibrancy of flat spaces and ornate objects, and human figures emerging in a closer focus, as the artist now pays attention to their behaviour and emotions that are being moulded somewhere between time-sanctioned habits and the new opportunities of the urbanising reality.

Rao's protagonists, suburban farmers who, one may guess, have sold their land to developers, still retain an earthy simplicity while savouring the sophistication and fruits of their sudden affluence.

Rajeshwar’s practice of painting on the reverse of acrylic sheet lets the stroke force prevail - presently clearer, firmer and thicker. It is also rougher and sturdier. Further, it also gives a 3-dimension effect to his work. He has chosen on the theme of farmers getting richer overnight by selling off their lands to estate developers and enjoying the luxurious life with the same age-old funny practices, as well as his childhood experiences wherein boys used to imitate their cine heroes and so on.

He has given many of his paintings Hindi names - like one meaning The First Laugh And The Last Laugh, which shows two paintings of a woman, one with full grown hair and the other with the immemorial sacred ritual of mundan. Then there is Honeymoon In Poland, an atmospheric scene from the honeymoon in a foreign country; a painting called Kya Chal Raha Hai showing a thief sneaking into a corporate office; and others called Shooting Chal Raha Hai Bhai, Gharwali Baharwali, Main Hoon Don, Chaudvi Ka Chand, Main Devanand Se Kam Nahin, and Mona Darling.

Rajeshwar Rao was born in Vizainagaram, and has a BFA from Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, and MFA from Central University, Hyderabad. He is a senior artist, and has exhibited his art all over the country since 1981. He has had solo exhibitions in some of the best art galleries in the country like Sakshi Gallery, Mumbai and Bangalore; Gallery Golden Threshold, Hyderabad; and Gallery Espace, New Delhi, in addition to being part of various group shows in Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore.

Awards from Mahakoshal Kala Parishad, MP, and Camlin Art Foundation, Bangalore, and the National Scholarship and Junior Fellowship from the Government of India, are some of his achievements in recognition for his works.
