Mumbai, Dec 6 (UNI) A well-established and respected name in the world of Indian Contemporary Art, Charan Sharma will showcase his work ''Upasthithi'' at the Museum Gallery here from December 10 to Dec 16.
In ''Upasthithi'' the focus of the new painting is on Buddha, the great preacher, and his present day followers. Devoted to the great preacher, the monks in their saffron robes are mostly seen as retreating to the life of renunciation.
Charan has internalized the Buddhist message and reproduced his Buddha in a new ambience,'' says his spokesperson.
Only recently Sharma had two exhibitions of his magnificent paintings on Buddha, titled ''Enlightenment''. With huge and lively paintings of Buddha and his followers, the halls were transformed into a monastery. Visitors were drawn into the realm of calm and transported from the hustle and bustle of the boisterous urban milieu.
