You're right, he's Fawad Tamkanat's own kin. Here's your chance to find out if genes run through paint brushes too.
City-based artist Farhad Tamkanat is hosting an exhibition of paintings from 3rd March at the Lakshana Art Gallery. The collection, called Prakriti, contains paintings done by Farhad with acrylic colors on canvas. Most of the paintings are figurative, especially on women and on nature. Different moods and different expressions synthesise generally in a variety of media.
The creative imagination is at play when he paints landscapes. The pallette with a fine mixture of colors like russet hues, browns, green and bright blue, appeals to the viewer. Farhad's works on women, borrowed from the day-to-day observation of their life and their behavior patterns, especially those with their chins on their hands, or sitting with their deep-thinking faces, reflect the utmost depth of the artist in the study of thoughts. In some of the paintings, women are shown amongst nature. This implies that the artist is probably trying to portray or compare women's beauty with the beauty of the nature.
Farhad Tamkanat, born and brought up in Hyderabad, is the younger brother of another renowned artist Fawad Tamkanat. He has done his BFA in painting from the S V College of Fine Arts, Hyderabad. After participating in various group shows for 5 years, this is his first solo show.
The exhibition is open from 11:00am to 7:00pm till 10th March. Please contact the art gallery at 2337-8033 for further details.
