These paintings have been done purely using dots. Here, then, is one person whose wavelength matches that of Photoshop!
Chitramayee - State Gallery of Fine Arts is organising an exhibition of paintings by Ginne Sagar, from 9th to 13th January. The peculiarity of the paintings is that they haven't been done using a paint brush, but by dots, mainly with the help of ball-point pens, for effective portrayal of men and objects.
Vibrant colors and the dots make Sagar's art eloquent and vivid. While some of his paintings present an other-worldliness with their dreamy effect, a few others are down-to-earth and possess a natural touch. The sharp dots and delicate lines weave a tapestry of rich colors.
