Chandigarh: Renowned artist G R Iranna would conduct a two-day workshop with 20 students of MFA (painting) from Government College of Art, this Thursday and Friday. Being organized by Lalit Kala Akademi, the painting workshop will be inaugurated at the Government Museum and Art Gallery, Sector 10, at 10.30 am.
Watching G R Iranna paint during this workshop is going to be a rare opportunity for all those who are interested in learning the art of painting as well as those who are keen to understand the intricacies of the process of creating art. Iranna will particularly share how to experiment with and on paper with Japanese ink, marble dust and some other materials. The artist will also be giving an audio-visual presentation of his artistic journey at the museum\'s auditorium on Thursday evening.
Iranna is one the few younger generation Indian artists whose art has been taken seriously and appreciated at various national and international art forums apart from generating immense curiosity and enthusiasm among art critics, curators, art historians collectors, museums and galleries.
His most recent solo show, Tempered Branches, was held earlier this year at the AICON Gallery in New York. It comprised several important recent series of paintings, along with a monumental wall drawing and installation piece. The exhibition demanded a critique of our popular conception of growth and development, both in nature and human thought.
