Ramachandran- Regional Secretary, Lalit Kala Academy, Delhi and Ms. Rosshni Vadhera- Vadhera Art Gallery presented their views.
"Art is an investment and investment is not a speculation. Investment is putting your financial support in a particular form of art so that something beautiful develops. And, the best investment in art is to invest in an artist," said Suneet Chopra, the art critic.
While presenting his views, during the seminar M. Ramachandran, Regional Secretary, Lalit Kala Academy, Delhi said: "Art is related to life and it has the potential to depict the myriad hues of life. Most of the countries in East or West are not blessed with the variety India is blessed with. There is creativity in every form of art whether it is painting, photography or fashion. Art gives an artist complete freedom of articulation. An artist has the knack to notice the most subtle aspect of things which others can't see."
He called upon the students to incessantly upgrade their knowledge which will add on to their experience and make them look at the world in a clearer and better way. (ANI)
