Gouri Shankar, a former faculty member of the JNTU, is a fine painter and is one of the few pioneers from Hyderabad who worked on a Lalit Kala Fellowship on graphics. He has a number of exhibitions to his credit at various cities in India, and his paintings find place in the collections of eminent people.
His works are part of the collection at National Gallery of Modern Art in Delhi and at many state museums in India, the US, France, Canada and other countries. The current exhibition showcases his latest works, where landscapes and nature's bounty capturing the multi-dimensional possibilities of nature's own color canvas will be displayed. Within each work, there are numerous layers of colors - mauve, purple, ochre, brown etc. He is also displaying the concept of collography - a process where the plate for taking prints is made using the relief and taglio method and where several prints can be made from one original work.
