The world of colours, textures and imagination draws in many. Some are able to make it a lifetime calling, others must share it with a work-life that is far away from a palette of colours. Like Peenu Singh and Aparna Warade. Both are artists who are also software engineers. They are part of a group show currently on at Renaissance Gallerie.

“It’s a hobby I take seriously which is why I have made the effort to exhibit,” says Peenu. Eight of her works join those by Ankur Bhatt and Uddandam Laxmi Prasadm in the show.

Aparna's  abstracts and nature paintings in oil and acrylic focus on joy and happiness. “I don’t like sad things,” she says, almost speaking for the child in her.

Uddandam’s mature canvases experiment with trying to capture fire in different media.

Gallery owner Shreen Malani who put together the show says the beauty of the works displayed lies in their differences. “Together they create a mosaic and effect an undulating artistic experience. No work is loud or flashy,” she says.

The only photographer on show, Anirban Basak has put up 14 of his captures of landscapes and conceptual photo art. In one series of five frames, he has used a fork to represent the human body and its prongs the many thoughts we have. A graduate of Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Anirban started off as an engineer and was even working with a engineering service centre. “I quit last year to turn a full-time photographer,” he says.

At Renaissance Gallerie, Cunningham Road till  October 26.
