Oorja is an unusual exhibition, where artists from across India will showcase their work on time, power, sensation, salvation, relationships, and silence!

Promising a mystical experience that you will cherish, Oorja— an art forum will organise a special five-day extravaganza, that will provide a platform to several artists from all over India.

Ramesh Thorat, a participating artist, who hails from a small village near Pune will exhibit a surprising yet thoughtful artwork by using nails. He explains, “A nail is not just a nail for me, its something beyond that. It is about giving birth to a new dimension of human understanding.”

In one of his sculptures, the Game of Chess, Thorat uses an unusual ly shaped platform filled with sharp nails and pawns that create a 3D effect.

“It conveys the journey of evolution from an amoeba to a human. Further elaborating the use of your abilities,” he elaborates.

Sanjay Kumar Srivastav, a Allahabad-based artist captures images from his consciousness as well as the unconscious, he translates his expressions using rhythm and colour into modern sculptures.

“Art is a process of evolution of life. It is great that Oorja is promoting such unconventional artists like us,” he concludes
