Singapore: Gnani Arts to organise their next art exhibition in Singapore on 28th Feb to 3rd March, themed on “In Love with Kishna”
The very idea of Krishna remains an unsurpassed, divine paradox; a multi-dimensional personification of a magnificent, global phenomenon that affirms, celebrates and embraces the practice of a prudent balance within the dichotomy of seemingly superficial pleasures and the imperative need for the upkeep of love and joy via spiritual upliftment. The sculptures and paintings in the collection of this exhibition are natural reflections of the 12 participating artists (an enthusiastic team that includes master-artists), in relation to their personal and social connectivity towards the term ‘Krishna’ and the vast spectrum of empowering narratives that retain their existence, predominantly through charming visual elements that exude the essence of the entity and the consciousness that it epitomises.
