Veterans and also young, active Hyderabad-based artists, their concerns in art and established works - the collection at Minaz Art Gallery provides an exposure to all of these, throughout the year, to the art connoisseur.

Among the renowned names, Laxma Goud, Vaikuntham and Shamshad Hussain and their works are among the prized collection. Laxma is a master of design whose etchings and prints based on raw images of men, women, animals and foliage apart from the suggestive phallic symbols merging into the surroundings are ever in demand in the international market. And Vaikuntham's vibrant hues of celebration and the images of bedecked Telangana women always remain a collectors choice.

Shamshad Hussain, on the other hand, has extended his simple graphite pencil drawings, and Jatin Das (now more popular as Nandita Das's father!), yet another popular name, is represented with his seductive images of men and women in stylistic freehand crayon movements. And last but not the least, D L N Reddy, another Hyderabad-based and world-renowned artist, has given some of his rare acrylics and also graphic prints. DLN's works show women in an emancipated attitude in a conscious expression.

Young city-based artists who shot to limelight over a decade ago now, and who exhibit their works almost in all the group exhibitions being held in the city, have also displayed their work at Minaz. "Basically, the gallery aims to bring to the fore, and provide a platform for, young upcoming city-based artists, and so has an extensive collection of these artists whose works are affordable and equally appealing," says Shehnaaz of the gallery.

Fawad Tamkanath's works are a favorite in the gallery's collection. His dry point, portraits and cityscapes are quite modernistic in terms of their attitude and composition, and at times they also seem to be inspired by Laxma's drawings. L N V Srinivas keeps a preoccupation with free spaces and his works are actually 'metascapes', which take the viewer into those unknown depths.

S K Sarkar, on the other hand, delves in romanticized images of half-clad women wallowing in waters and jungles, and still manages to attract audiences, while Narendra Nath's collection shows his series of acrylics of fishermen of Srikakulam district. The gallery hosts its private collection on a regular basis, and changes the display after every new exhibition.
