Impressive expo


A three-day exhibition of the paintings of noted artist and film director, Bapu, christened "Bommala Koluvu" concluded at Hotel Daspalla Executive Court on Sunday. The expo organised by the art promoters `Impressions' evoked good response from the public.

"Today's children are blissfully unaware of our rich culture and the stories from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata which have a message for all generations. Unfortunately, the children remain glued to the cartoon characters on the idiot box. They cannot imagine anyone beyond `Spiderman' and `Batman' as the saviour of those in distress forgetting that Lord Hanuman had flown across the oceans and saved Goddess Sita," says Raja Ram of Impressions.


"Bapu had brought life to the characters in our epics through his paintings. Parents are bringing children to the exhibition and explaining to them about the characters," he says. Apart from mythological characters, paintings depicting various dance forms of India and the different facets of life were displayed. Impressions has been organising exhibitions in different parts of the country from September last year with the objective of promoting art.

The prices range from Rs.450 to Rs.5000.
