Picture perfect art
What: Artist Ashok Roy, who graduated from the Sir JJ School of Arts, is out with his new exhibition, which showcases a new art concept called Photo Genius Art. A total of 30 paintings are on display that bring forward the nuances of this concept.
Purple Dream: This is a full moon seen through dark foliage, depicting a scene of hypnotic serenity
Piracy be Damned: This takes a potshot at the menace of video and audio piracy by depicting a pirate ship under duress
How: Photo Genius Art or Photo Genius Painting is created when an artist chooses a photograph and then transfers it on to canvas. He then works on it with oil paints to achieve an entirely new creation. While the photograph acts as the starting point, the final painting can move towards any form — from realistic to figurative to semi or pure abstract.
Swirling Costume: This is a tribal dancer’s rhythm captured in colours and movements
Flaming Passion: This painting began as a picture of a candle flame, which was then given the shape of two human figures in a passionate encounter
Where: Till June 15, 11 am to 7 pm
Cycle of nature: The rotational magic of a moving click lends itself to an amazing picture, where the brush strokes match the style and direction of the photographic detail
At: Artists’ Centre, K Dubash Marg, Kala Ghoda.
