REVIEW FOR EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY PROF GOURI SHANKER
He is the subject of a monograph published by the Lalit Kala Academy. If you know what that means, you won't miss this. And if you don't, it's like this: there's never a wrong time for some things.
Shrishti Art Gallery is organising a show of paintings by Prof Gouri Shanker, from 20th to 30th June. The artist is exhibiting 33 of his works at the exhibition. These paintings are landscapes in abstract form, depicting the arial view, the Google Earth way. Done on the media of oil on canvas and water color on paper, the paintings, with bright colors like red, blue and green, fight for the viewer's diversion and attention.
