Ashvita’s art gallery is presenting ‘Picturising the Rural’ by artist P. Perumal from February 1 to 5.
Perumal’s work is synonymous with the exploration of the life and people of a rural milieu. His engagement with this subject is reflective of his childhood days spent in the picturesque Koomapatti village near Srivilliputtur, Tamil Nadu, states a note from the gallery.
Over the course of his lifetime, Perumal won many awards, notably the Madras State Lalit Akademi award (1963 and 1967), the Tamil Nadu Ovia Nunkalai Kuzhu award (1979) and the National Award (1990-91).
For the past year, Ashvita’s has been focusing on displaying modern art from Madras.
Ashvita’s will be featuring 26 of his works ranging across various rural themes. The exhibition is on till February 5 from 10 am to 6 pm. Open to all.
