Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BANGALORE, India - Dec 08, 2016 - Bangalore, India, December 8th 2016 — Sublime Galleria and Taj West End present ‘Elite Strokes’, a collection of paintings capturing the essence of natural beauty and human interactions. Created by M.R. Deshmukh, a prolific painter from the heart of the beautiful Sahyadri Mountains, the paintings will be on display from the 09-15 December at The Taj West End and 16-31 December at Sublime Galleria situated on the 8th Floor of The Collection, UB City.
The Opening Night of the exhibition will take place on Friday – 09 December 2016 at the beautiful Art Corridor at The Taj West End. Given that both The Taj West End and Sublime Galleria are strong patrons of the arts, most of the art aficionados from the city are expected to be present at the event.
M.R. Deshmukh rejects the traditional approach to countryside paintings by liquefying forms in his works and capturing the fleeting essence of nature. He’s particularly fascinated with the impact of light on the views around him and expresses this in his work. While all his paintings bear his signature style of bold, short strokes and strong colours, each piece of art tells a unique story.
M.R. Deshmukh’s works have been bought by some of the most influential art collectors in the country. His paintings have won several awards, including the Best Painting Award by Art Society of India. His works have been displayed in top commercial and hospitality properties across the country, including Hotel Taj (Bombay), Bank of America, Hindustan Unilever, and many more.
Commenting on the exhibition, Ms. Uzma Irfan – Director, Prestige Group, said, “It gives me great pleasure to present a gifted artist like M.R. Deshmukh. His paintings are unique because they capture the beauty of nature while also allowing some room for abstraction and fluidity. I invite everyone to come and enjoy these beautiful works of art. I also want to thank The Taj West End for partnering with us on this initiative. By joining hands with such a well-respected brand, we hope to offer even stronger platforms to the artists and the art community overall.”
Mr. Somnath Mukherjee – General Manager, The Taj West End added, “We’re happy to be associated with Sublime Galleria, one of South India’s foremost art galleries. The Taj West End and Sublime Galleria share a common vision – to give talented artists a platform to showcase their work, and help the city gain recognition as a fast-growing art hub. I hope the city’s art lovers enjoy M.R. Deshmukh’s works.”
