Jogen Chowdhury’s arrival has caused something of a mini sensation in Dubai, particularly with the Indian community who are set to visit the event in their droves over the weekend.  Chowdhury, the senior master has risen to the top echelons of art in India and is known globally for his unique style which combines ink, water colour and pastel.  Chowdhury is in excellent company for the five day showcase, with his works featuring among India’s 16 most distinguished artists, each one an icon in his or her own style. Rare and never before seen pieces will be on display along with a special showcase of student interpretations of the master’s works.  The event which opens on the 15 October for a private opening ceremony, at the RIRA Gallery, DIFC will continue for the general public from 16 October until 20 October, 2015. The event is free to all and offers something for everyone. Gallery opening hours are from 11am until 6pm daily.

Speaking about his curatorial vision for Kala Sutra, Arun Ghose, India’s most highly regarded Art Curator said “Each artist in this show serves as a visual link, forming a continuous chain in which dynamic rhythm vibrates with static vigour. Continuity of this thread re-establishes the strength and Indianness of Indian art, today” said Ghose.
