HYDERABAD: Kappari Kishan, a city-based artist showcased a collection of 15 paintings to commemorate the occasion of Buddha Purnima at Also Boutique, Banjara Hills.
The event was inaugurated by ex-IAS officer BV Papa Rao and included a wide range of paintings with paper, canvas and plywood bases. An ardent lover of Buddhist philosophy, the artist wishes to promulgate notions like Nirvana and Ashtanga Marga to the people.
He aims to spread peace to everyone through his paintings. The paintings were made so as to create a calming effect and a meditative feeling in the minds of the viewers.
The artwork was a mesmerising blend of bright gold, red, brown and yellow which gave them an eye-popping effect. “Buddha’s face itself is an instantly calming view. I have been trying to recreate this through my paintings, but I am yet to do justice to its beauty and serenity.
Each time there are new elements to include which make the output even more beautiful”, said the enthusiastic artist when asked about his focus on Buddha and his philosophies. The artist began his illustrious career after being pushed and goaded by his Biology teacher who was mightily impressed by his depiction of amoeba and ferns!
