HYDERABAD: There are many hidden artists in the cold frigid corporate labyrinths. The blue glass and cool granite block the free flow of colours thanks to the tight schedules and round-the-clock deadlines, yet many professionals let their artistic sides bloom and carry on with the art form their hearts choose.

That’s how Indraneel Ganguli, Senior VP and Global Head of Brand and Marketing, Tech Mahindra found the call of his heart in artworks. He chose to draw and sketch. After years of continuing his passion he put 29 of his artworks on display at Joyess Lifestyle, a fashion studio at Banjara Hills.


The artworks on display are portrait sketches by the artist. One gets to see Bob Marley, Marilyn Mnroe, Bruce Lee, Steve Jobs, Big B and even Mother India as displayed in the epic movie’s posters.

One sees even artworks on Satyajit Ray’s Feluda and an amalgamation of artist Jamini Roy’s artworks done neatly on the canvas.

One can’t help but notice portrait of Sherlock Holmes infused with calligraphic words like: ‘fear’, ‘mystery’, ‘blue’ etc. Shares Indraneel, “I use sketch pens and calligraphic pens for my artworks. The portraits are of those personalities who have influenced me at some point in my life.” 

The solo exhibition will be on till March 26
