Thank You

'Bengaluru on Location' finally closed last Tuesday (26th Nov 2013) after 4 days of  show at Chitrakala Parishath. The response this time was really overwhelming. So first of all I want to thank each and every one who helped in making this such a success.

Here are some pics and a short report on the show.

The opening was a big party. It was opened by my sketching club Pencil Jammers. Though everybody had to go through the torture of my nervous speech, I feel they enjoyed the show and the food.

Media was very kind to me in their coverage and reviews. Three top English dailies, namely New Indian Express, The Hindu and Deccan Chronicle and one local daily (Ee Nadu) covered the show and gave good reviews.

Those who missed the show can take a  virtual tour of the show below.

The show was well attended on all four days by people from all walks of life. Everybody seemed to enjoy the show. Many people came back with their families to see the show for the second time. Many artists came back with other artists to see the show again. For some people it was like seeing a dreamy Bangalore in a gallery. 

I'll leave you with some comments from the visitor's book and a few more pics.

"Brilliant Work Prabal. This is the first time I am seeing all your finished watercolors together, and I am really overwhelmed. Love the play of lights and shadows and the beautiful concepts. Keep it up and hope to see more..."

"Beautiful. Excellent watch, each and every one."

"By attending this exhibition my interest towards art has certainly increased. Thank you."

"Excellent impressionist style of watercolors. Loved it."

"Splendid collection of a dreamy Bangalore."

"Beautiful art works with a great sense of perspective and color. "

Muvattupuzah - VI

I did this just before I started my prep for the exhibition. And since then I have not been able to get time even to post this. Yes. I have been busy. :)

A solo exhibition is really demanding. Fortunately I am quiet good on the plan right now. Nothing has got delayed till now and I hope it stays that way. Just got stuck with the invitations a little. There was no printer guy who was ready to print the envelopes of the invites for me for a reasonable price. The envelop was actually going to cost more than two times the invitation cards. And others were not ready to print on envelopes.

So I decided that I would do all the envelopes manually using my brush and paints. And it really did not take that long really. And moreover I enjoyed doing these.

Solo Show

Hi there. I have not been able to keep track of all the exciting things that has been going on in the blogoshpere (Guess that what they call this space :)) for the past ten odd days. The reason of my absence being a small vacation that I had taken on account of Deepavali festival. Now that I am back, suddenly it seems to me that I am running out of time for my next solo show which is scheduled to open on 23rd of this month.

I have created a page for the show. Please click here to view the page. I have also (painstakingly) made a promo video for the show. Please have a look at it by clicking here. I hope you all like the video.

I'll keep updating you about the preparations. Hopefully I'll be able to do and post some paintings also in the meanwhile.

Till then take care and paint well.
