03 - 05 Mar 2015, 361° CONFERENCE: Sheila Sri Prakash, the Chief Architect of Shilpa Architects will participate as a keynote speaker at the 361 Degrees conference. 

The theme for the conference is DIS.ARCHITECTURE – Discourse, Intuition and Syntax in Architecture. 361 Degrees is a platform for architects to discuss their architectural discourse. Every architect has an origin, a story, a cause and a philosophy of his own. Every architect has his own meaning and implication of architecture and his own sense of accountability or the lack of it as a member of the fraternity. Books and texts are forums for speculation, experimentation, inquiry, and creativity, and are understood as important undertakings for any academic school-design schools not the least. A design studio motivates discourse, instigates curiosity and invigorates a spirit in the designer to develop and manifest his own sense of identity that is portrayed in his work.

18 Jan 2015, MOKSH Opening Reception at Gallery Veda @ Shilpa Architects. 

Splashes of color, different hues, endless narratives that emerge into beautiful forms, this exhibition has an antiquated yet contemporary dynamic that draws you to it. Ramesh Gorjala, Saraswathi, Sachin Jaltare, and Sreekanth Kurva take the viewer through a dance of form and formlessness with intense detail and sensitivity.

Gorjala’s distinct imagery unfolds into intricate Hanuman, Vishnu and Buddha figures that engage both the body and mind in a modern twist. For Saraswathi, her fluid Radha’s and Krishna’s with their unmistakable expressions draws the viewer to their world. Jaltare on the other hand merges both figurative and abstract – Shiva, spirituality, and symbolism on a canvas! Kurva is a master of watercolor and collage. Rich Banarsi fabric entwined in bulls and roosters laid threadbare on canvas intrigues in his delicate and unmistakable style.

Each with a unique style tries to attain what we all seek for, Moksh. 

Exhibition on till 11 March 2015.
