Bhubaneswar, March 27 (LocalWire): A collection of drawings, capturing the vertical structures of the city by a young artist from Rajasthan, will be on display at the Utsha Foundation here from March 29.
Priyesh Gothwal had spent one month exploring the city’s cultural heritage, particularly its vertical architecture, and sought to interpret them in his drawings, said the organizers.
Priyesh blends his work with native Rajasthani Mewar school of painting.
Utsha Foundation for Contemporary Art, who designed the Bhubaneswar Art Trail 2018, will host the exhibition from 5 pm onwards on Friday, it said in a press release.
Priyesh, who has a master’s degree in Fine Arts from Shiv Nadar University in Delhi, works with “text and sound to give a detailed view” in his architectural drawings, Utsha said.
“The city’s Kalinga School of temple architecture has fascinated me. I was drawn towards its unique structural designs,” said Priyesh, who was born to an Udaipur family practicing miniature art.
“I carried a composition from home, sketched on a tracing paper to be used as a stencil for two thematic compositions: A painting of a palace and lady carrying water from lake,” he added.
Utsha, a charitable trust, was founded by Odia artist Jagannath Panda in 2012 to provide an alternative platform for artists to create and experiment in Odisha.
