Mumbai, June 22 (IANS) Abstract painter Soketu Parikh along with art dealer Ebraheem Jetha will curate a six-day mega exhibition of works by 42 artists at Jehangir Art Gallery, starting Monday. The show would also have 15 artists displaying their works of art in eight-foot long panels. Some of the artists whose work would be on display are Ajay De, Anand Panchal, Babu Bhai Mistry, Charan Sharma, Brinda Miller and Manjit Bawa.
Terming himself as ’soul painter’, Soketu, who turned to full time painting after spending 25 years in the world of commerce, said: “We will also be announcing the coming up of a new art gallery spread over 5,000 sq feet.”
Soketu said: “The paintings have been carefully selected which will not only enhance the beauty of your home but will also give sure value for money.”
“I have been collecting work of arts for quite a long time from various parts of India, but this is the first time that so many artists both established and emerging, are coming together on one platform,” said art connoisseur and dealer, Ebraheem of Manav’s Marvel, which is an art gallery for emerging artists and contemporary art.
Both Soketu and Ebraheem contended that each work would have the artist’s individuality signed on the canvas in the form of expression. They all vary from each other and that is why we are attempting to bring different schools of painters together on one platform, they said.
