‘The Shapes of New Vision’ by 23 artists at IconArt gallery showcases paintings, photographs – an exhibition that aims to enhance the reach and scope of art among common people.

Hyderabad-based artist Bijaylaxmi Rana whose work is at the exhibition shares, “My theme is ‘Beauty’ which has no language to describe. Woman and nature both are more beautiful than others. Woman has everything in her like caring, love, sacrifice, kindheartedness and many more, and that's the original and inner beauty of her.

Nature is the most precious and valuable gift to us; beautiful flowers, sky, rivers, forest, hills etc. Together, they are phenomenal. They are my inspiration. Mainly I use bright colors to express my feelings for all that natural beauty. Both of my paintings are in mix-media on paper.”

Jaipur-based artist Krishan Kundara is a freelance illustrator, creates wonderful caricatures, and is inspired by Rajasthani culture. In his work ‘Expression on my Demands’ you can see his subjects wearing Pagri's with big moustaches.

Sometimes his work delves into the idea of human intimacy and discomfort. He creates utopias where insecurities, self-image issues and judgments don't exist. Instead, people are comfortable with their bodies.

He works, mainly in pen and ink, are based on making intricately detailed figures. He creates them in a simplified way through sketching and pencil strokes. Hyderabad-based artist Baradi Naresh’s ‘Design in Bull’ is done with acrylic on canvas. In the painting, with the help of white in the background and blue for the bull’s body, he uses a dark blue pen to bring the ‘Traditional Design’.

Bangalore-based artist Shweta Agrawal shares about her art experience, “I am an artist with celestial imagination. I completed my Bachelors and Masters in Fine Arts from Govt College. Education gave me the basics, but as a child I was bewildered by the majesty of the gracefully decorated Diwali walls, it kept me glued and brought the artist in me to life.”

“My works will largely react to the authentic beauty of women, beauty of underwater, and beauty of daily life and Indian culture and folk art. My medium is acrylic on canvas.” This exhibition has been organised and presented by curator Archana Singh.
