Off The Wall to showcase contemporary arts from Dec. 10

Jamshedpur, Dec. 2: The steel city Jamshedpur is all set to organize ‘Confluence – III,’ the third edition of yearly art camp at the Off the Wall art gallery. The event will be a four-day celebration of art and artists, starting December 10.

This time, 20 artists, including five from Jamshedpur, are taking part in a curated camp where carefully selected contemporary works will reflect the vibrancy and diversity of genres, themes and forms. 

The distinguished pan-Indian list of artists include Bijay Biswal from Nagpur; Brajmohan Arya from Jabalpur; Sanjoy Banerjee from Kolkata; V. L. Mevada and Dr. Chandrasekhar Kale from Ujjain; Ravi Shankar, Anil Kumar and Sunil Vishwakarma from Varanasi; C. R. Hembram from Gumla; Paban Roy from Deoghar; Haren Thakur, Sharmila Thakur, Praween Karmakar and Tarak Shankar Das from Ranchi; and Mukta Gupta, Prabir Shaw, Santanu Dinda , Sunita Dinda , Raja Mukhi and Swarup Kumar Dutta from Jamshedpur.

During the upcoming four days of colour and imagination, the artists will emerge out of their creative cocoons of isolation to engage among themselves and with visitors at large to showcase their internal monologues and dialogues with one another that burst on canvas. For visitors, including art collectors, art lovers and the masses, it will be a rare experience of witnessing some of India’s finest creative minds at work, said Divya Taneja, owner of ‘Off the Wall’ art gallery.

Taneja explained, “For us at Off the Wall, ‘Confluence – III’ presents yet another opportunity to bring practitioners of art and art lovers on one platform to create a deeper engagement with art in this industrial city.

At ‘Confluence – III,’ all mediums, themes and genres, find enthusiastic and admiring acceptance. There’s only one yardstick – quality – which our curator Prabir Shaw has been particular about.”

Complex themes from Indian mythology to contemporary abstract; from expressionism to minimalism; from landscapes to figurative works; from water colour to mixed media; you can expect everything on display to mesmerise you, added Taneja.

At the show, one can catch Haren Thakur’s pithy, witty and minimalist takes, Bijay Biswal’s definitive “Wet Platform” series, Brajmohan Arya’s complex depiction of man-woman relationships, Ravi Shankar’s passionate works on human desires and endeavours, Anil Kumar’s expressionist vision of Varanasi and landscapes, Sunil Kumar’s skilled imaging of human figures, Mukta Gupta’s geometrical yet lyrical human figures, Sunita and Santanu Dinda’s Indian style paintings and many more.

‘Catch Confluence – III’ will be held between December 10 and 13 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.
