Presenting a curated selection of watercolour works by artist K Hiremath along with the live art by the artist. Hiremath is ranked amongst the top 50 watercolour artists in the World. He is a recipient of several awards and accolades nationally and internationally. This is a solo exhibition showcasing a curated selection of artist’s paintings documenting his travels to 3 heritage sites in India and Nepal (Hampi, Banaras and Nepal). One of the locations is the archaeological and heritage site of Hampi, Karnataka which incidentally is also the theme of the décor at Grand Mercure hotel. The artworks are more than mere reflections of the sites, capturing the very essence of the place and its people. The paintings invoke a strong sense of nostalgia through which you can almost smell the smells in the streets and feel the sunlight on your arms.
The exhibition is curated by Art & Beyond, an enterprise that brings artworks of extremely talented emerging artists to the art patrons.
