An in­ter­na­tional favourite is Wil­liam Ken­tridge. He dis­plays his work in the the­atre form and cre­ates a visual nar­ra­tive that is aes­thet­i­cally, po­lit­i­cally and cul­tur­ally bal­anced. His use of mu­sic cre­ates a vi­bra­tion that awak­ens one to the pull of the imag­i­na­tion. In the con­tem­po­rary In­dian art scene, Chro­mato­pho­bia, by LN Tal­lur, struck me as unique. Tal­lur puts on a fan­tas­tic show with all the right in­gre­di­ents nec­es­sary to cook up some food for thought. There is much to ob­serve in his work — phys­i­cally, con­cep­tu­ally and aes­thet­i­cally. His­tory, cul­ture, so­ci­ety are all ex­pressed and made tan­gi­ble.
