At the fifth event of the series, Park Hyatt presents Innate Folklore, a unique collection of the recent works of artist Anuradha Thakur. Take a moment to embark on a tribal journey through her palette and engage in her artistic story of rural India at The Art Walkway, Park Hyatt Hyderabad, until January 30, 2017.
Thakur has worked with some of the most shy tribes in the country, has walked through dense forests to get to these areas and at one point, even found guns pointing at her. But none of those escared her.
In fact, the virtuoso says that she is all for the adventure that she undertakes for her art. In Hyderabad, for her show - Innate Folklore - Thakur talks about her work with the tribals of India.
Thakur's rendezvous with tribal art started due to a completely different reason. As per her, there was a lot of focus on western art during her fine arts course, but she wasn't interested in any of those. So, after she finished her course, she started working with an NGO that worked with tribals. She would go ahead to host arts and craft workshops for them and help them earn a small amount of money. She worked with the NGO for nearly 22 years before returning to the art scene once again, now in Park Hyatt Hyderabad.
