Hinduism fires the imagination of a Russian artist, and gives it colour

By Mohamed Nazeer
Though Ms. Ziganshina was born in Kazan, the capital of Tatarstan, Russia, she lives in Portugal now.
INDIA---It is the colour, the drama and the art of the ritual Theyyam performances in the region that kindled the creativity of Madina Ziganshina as an artist. Ms. Ziganshina, from Portugal, just happened to see Theyyam performances during her stay here as a tourist. Attracted by the ritual and artistic features of the performances, she gave vent to her creative impressions of Theyyam with brush strokes. She will exhibit her paintings at the Brushman’s art gallery here from March 6. [link]
