Actor, Entrepreneur and Art connoisseur Vishnu Manchu will host 36 Celebrated Wood Carving Artists of India live work at Tirupati. These artists from different regions of India are being brought together for the first time in one platform themed as ‘Jnana’.
Starting today, over a period of the next 20 days these artists will showcase their mastery in wood carving, live to an audience of 15,000 young art connoisseurs and students at Vidya Niketan Education Trust Campus in Tirupati.
World-renowned artist from London, Radha Binod Sharma known for his Painting work worldwide is curating the entire 20 days boot camp and the line-up of wood carving artists.
Speaking after inaugurating the wood carving event, Jnana , Vishnu Manchu said ‘I am an art and culture enthusiast, deeply passionate about promoting diverse art of India. The art of wood carving is regal and brings to life the history and cultural thread of India. Wood-working has a long and rich place in our history and I take great pride in hosting these phenomenal artists and their work through ‘Jnana’ in the great temple city.
“Wood carving still remains relevant today, as many objects in our everyday life are crafted from this sturdy form.” Vishnu added. I am pleased Radha Binod has agreed to curate this beautiful art event. His presence and his art expressions will add immense value to the whole gathering.
The event at Tirupati will be a treat to everyone to discover the works of wood art—as each of the artists transform the rigid form into something that’s beautiful and startling. The event also aims to inspire and provide opportunity for students from Sri Vidya Niketan Education Trust Campus and neighbouring regions to discover and learn the style of wood carving, also the shades of paint that will make an individual an accomplished artist and art creators.
On the other hand, Radha Binod Sharma will inspire through his sessions the art of using a unique palette that illumines earthly matters and his characters with radiant light.
