CBD BELAPUR: Art lovers in Navi Mumbai can look forward to a month- long exhibition depicting love and joy titled ‘Joie De Vivre’ meaning ‘ Joy of Life’ at Shaurya Arts gallery at in Belapur’s Sector 15.
The festival will begin on Saturday (April 2) and is a solo exhibition by Gurgaon- based artist Ghazal Alagh.
Twenty paintings revolving around meaning of life, love, and joy will be on display.
Although Shaurya Arts has organised many group art festivals of several artists across the country, this is the first time the gallery is presenting a solo exhibition of an outdoor artist.
The artist is also excited about her art being exhibited in the city for the first time.
“The theme and concept of the exhibition is quite simple yet engaging through which I am simply going to portray one message that ‘Love is the music of life in various colours and forms,” said the artist.
Ghazal has exhibited her work in many places such as Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and Dubai which incidentally is also the place where she first sold her series in 2014.
Her art journey began in 2011, when she visited the Kala Ghoda festival in Mumbai, after which her suppressed passion for art was reborn.
As an aim to spread art among young people she started a small organisation, Being Artsy, recently which helps and nurture talents among underprivileged people.
“We work in slums to teach the dwellers art that has vocational value and can help them earn a living through painting and pottery,” said the artist.
The exhibition will be on till April 30 from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
