A love carved in stone for this artist
Adextrous artist can infuse life in the most inanimate things. And this ongoing exhibition in the Capital is a proof of that. A family of tortoise carved out of white marble, candles depicting life’s transitory nature, and more are all part of Lallan Singh’s exhibition titled Divine Journey II.
The 48-year-old artist has a reputation for creating masterpieces out of stone. Interestingly, he doesn’t have any formal training for the art.
“I have done BSc and a management course. I worked in IT for sometime, but could not keep myself away from my love for sculpting.”
He has been holding exhibitions for the last two decades and chose to learn the skill from the masters. “I left the job and approached several people to learn the art, basically experts in this field. I used to observe them and learnt the art through observation or by assisting them,” says Singh.
His love for marble motivated him to shift base from Prayagraj to Udaipur.
“Udaipur is a city of marbles. One can easily find the right marble there. There is no place better than the city to learn and excel at the art of sculpting,” says Singh.
Open from 11am to 6pm, the exhibition is being held at Triveni Kala Sangam, Mandi House, and will be on till December 9.
