Treasures of Old Pune
The architecture and living spaces of the Peth areas characterized by wooden doors & panels, stone walls, flat bricks, quirky & bright exteriors are explored in this exhibition that brings together pictures and paintings. The intent is to try to capture the spirit of harmonious living through the lens of a photographer; Pratik Patki and the brush of an artist, Anisha Kotibhaskar.
About Anisha Kotibhaskar
Anisha Kotibhaskar loves to bring this contrast to her artwork, be it in the form of colours, textures or forms. She started with oils, then moved to Acrylics, and is now experimenting with other mediums. She shuns finer details, and likes to bring forth the bigger picture, something that’s more rustic. Her art slants towards representation or suggestive style, rather than replication of an idea from reality to canvas. That’s why palette knife is one of her favourite tools.
In January 2016, she won an award at the Hyderabad Art Society, 2016, for her painting titled ‘The Market’. She set up an experimental art stall in Seasons Mall, Pune, in 2016. She often conducts knife painting workshops. In Oct 2015, she exhibited her paintings in a group exhibition at the Hyderabad State Art Gallery.
