Airports India - - NEWS - Ankit Bhat­na­gar Man­ager (PR) AAI, CHQ

Be­la­gavi Air­port Ter­mi­nal Build­ing has ded­i­cated spa­ces that dis­play art­work cre­ated by tal­ented lo­cal artists. Colour­ful pro­jec­tions of mu­rals and paint­ings dec­o­rate the walls of the up­graded ter­mi­nal build­ing high­light­ing the essence of lo­cal tra­di­tion and cul­ture. The paint­ing by Sarita Singh (top) is a com­plete rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Kar­nataka’s her­itage, cul­ture and wildlife. From left to right, the paint­ing de­picts the Vi­jayana­gara Em­pire of Hampi, Kar­nataka’s rich wildlife, the Badami caves, a tra­di­tional dance theatre form: Yak­sha­gana and the rev­ered Queen Chen­namma, who gal­lantly fought the Bri­tish. Hail­ing from a quaint vil­lage in the Be­la­gavi dis­trict, Ma­hesh Honule’s wa­ter­colour paint­ings (top left) bring to life the land­scapes of Be­la­gavi. His colour­ful imag­i­na­tion in­spired by na­ture and green­ery adds vi­vac­ity to the up­graded air­port ter­mi­nal build­ing. Mys­tic healer and artist, T.K. Awaghade’s tantric paint­ings (mid­dle left) por­tray In­dia’s es­o­teric reli­gion and art. Ac­claimed for creat­ing Shri Yantras on can­vas, Awaghade’s paint­ings are rec­og­nized for their com­bi­na­tion of In­dian phi­los­o­phy and tra­di­tional aes­thet­ics. A large mu­ral paint­ing by Sr­ishti Arts (bot­tom right) wel­comes trav­ellers to the Air­port. Weigh­ing 200kg, the mu­ral at Be­la­gavi Air­port is a trib­ute to An­cient Egyptian and In­dian tra­di­tion, depict­ing the cul­ture and mu­sic of both these great civ­i­liza­tions. As­crib­ing to AAI’S goal of creat­ing a green en­vi­ron­ment, a wall in the air­port has been ded­i­cated to Hy­dro­pon­ics (bot­tom left), de­signed by the or­gan­i­sa­tion, Mod­ern Pon­ics. The wall hosts a ver­ti­cal gar­den where plants are nour­ished only by wa­ter with­out the use of soil. At Be­la­gavi Air­port, this ded­i­cated wall not only en­hances beauty but also as­sists in keep­ing the en­vi­ron­ment fresh and healthy.
