India Art Fair Meanderings

If you were at the India Art Fair 2017 you would notice that there were so many things that were newer and interesting. One of the most awaited event in Delhi's art calendar the four day classy art fair was visited by thousands of people appreciating art including well known artists like Paresh Maity, Satish Gujral, Gopi Gajwani and many others.

Among those who showcased their art through paintings and some who made statements through their sculptures were Veer Munshi who created a papeir mache horse, Girjesh Kumar Singh, ‘Laga chunari mein daag’ (The Stained Robe), inspired by Kabir , 16th century philosopher among others. The Absolute art installments ( The Absolut Gupta and Absolute Kher)  became popular with the visitors posing for their selfies as did the beautiful Taj Mahal by Sudharshan Shetty.

 

Thukral and Tagra's 'Memoir Bar' was an interactive space at the fair that had visitors thronging to leave their memory on a tile which became a part of the installation. Participants chose a memory and which was then given a colour choice transferred onto the tile beautifully.

Pakistani American artist Anila Quayyam Agha's 'All the Flowers are for Me' also made into almost every visitors social media post for its captivating display of a lit metal box in red with delicate cut outs of florals and geometric designs. The patterns spread across the big booth in beautiful reflections.

Luxury BMW's display of BMW M3 GTR car painted by the Italian artist Sandro Chia was a major hit as usual while  Reena Saini Kallat's 'Woven Chronicle' displayed at the entrance of the VIP lounge of a woven map reflecting digitally connected world with multi coloured electric wires made visitors stop and look twice.
