Pondicherry Art Akademy is playing a vital role in spreading art, promoting and creating a platform for the artists of India. With their nine years of hard work and service they have organised more than 35 National and state level Art Shows for kids, upcoming artist and senior Artists. And there is no doubt that they have been the pioneers in Pondicherry for curating grand art events. In order to honor and promote Pondicherry Artists, Aurodhan Art Gallery’s Director Shri.Lalit Verma has joined hands with Pondicherry Art Akademy and organised a grand camp in Pondicherry for Project maa. They both jointly presents solo shows of 12 active artists from Pondicherry.
The first of the solo shows was launched by senior Artist and Art Activist Kalaimamani. Shri. K.K.Segar. The show was inaugurated on 24th May by Shri.M.Vaithianathan who is the founder of Kamala trust. Shri.Lalit Verma has delivered his presidential speech and mentioned that Pondicherry artists are being a great surprise by their good works. Artist Dr.J.Gopal, Regional Director of Indria Gandhi National Centre for Arts (Pondicherry Region) and Artist A.Soucoumarane were guests of honour. Shri.K.K.Segar’s works are widely appreciated for his unique technique, style, Composition and his idea to bring both Indian tradition & philosophy in contemporary painting.
The spiritual knowledge and understanding of the nature are well witnessed in his works. His potential to express all his spiritual and life experiences in his paintings makes even the common people to turn to his works. And many well known artists of India mentioned that his paintings are such great pieces to be praised. When Shri. K.K.Segar was asked which his master piece is, he politely said that he has not created it yet and learning everyday to create one very soon. May be that’s the reason he is being an inspiration to many students to peruse their passion and dream. This series of solo shows will continue for the next couple of months. This is being seen as an historical event in Pondicherry.
