On a day when nature showed its destructive face with heavy rains, thunder and lightening in the twin cities a few days ago, Gond artist Sambhav Singh Shyam brought colourful images of nature and wild to the fore with his vibrant traditional art. He is in city for a workshop organised by Studio Amoli in collaboration with Daira Centre for Culture and Arts (that was on May 19) and at Phoenix Arena on May 26. Sambhav’s grandfather Jangarh Singh Shyam was a celebrated Gond artist. It was J Swaminathan, then director of Bharat Bhavan who was mesmerised with the artwork done on the walls and kothi (kitchen storehouse) of their house. [More]
