New Delhi, Jan 15 — Indian contemporary art has spread its wings to a new display terrain by connecting to thousands of international travellers at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) with "Hamanta-Shishir", a collection of 34 paintings and sculptures by 22 artists.

It is part of a larger art project, "Art Walk" - an attempt by the Delhi International Airport Limited to provide a platform for fliers to appreciate Indian art, buy art works and raise awareness about art, DIAL said Tuesday.

"Hemanta-Shishir" is an autumn-winter collection. It will be followed by "Basanta-Greeshma (spring-summer) and "Varsha-Sharada (monsoon-autumn). A decision on continuing the cycle will be taken at a later date.

DIAL chief executive officer Prabhakara Rao said: "The Delhi airport has organised a private exhibition to permit passengers the opportunity to enjoy the work of multi-facetted artists. The exhibition has been created as a platform for artists to appear under one umbrella that will facilitate a space enabling artist-passenger interactions through a diversity of experiences and activities through art."

The first-of-its-kind exhibition is an eclectic mix of artworks by some of India's established as well as emerging artists such as Arpana Caur, Anjolie Ela Menon, Bhawani Katoch, Bhuwal Prasad, Bratin Khan, Gurdeep Singh, Jayasri Burman, Jehangir Sabavala, K.S. Radhakrishnan, K.G. Subramanyan, Lalu Prasad Shaw, Manu Parekh, Madhvi Parekh,

Mohammed Osman, Neeraj Goswami, Lal Bahadur Singh, Paresh Maity, Puja Bahri, Ramesh Gorjala, Revati Sharma Singh, Sarang Singla and Sakti.

The exhibitions will showcase various themes, mediums and concepts to chronoligically sequence the movements in India traditional, modern, contemporary and experimental art work.

Some artworks in the present season have been influenced by mythological aspects and legends and are, therefore, inclined towards traditional forms and practices.

Conversely, some artists have depicted the changing phase of rural and urban life in India. The extreme effects of globalization and industrialisation have also been showcased at a macro level.

Commenting on the display, Paresh Maity said: "For the first time we are showcasing our work at a world-class airport and are honoured to be given such a platform where people can experience significant creative stimulation."

The works are priced between Rs.25,000 and Rs.18,00,000. The exhibition will close March 15.
