BANGALORE: With an intention to provide a platform for artists from across the state, the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat will hold Chirta Santhe on January 29.

Addressing the media about the event on Wednesday, C N Rudrappa, chief administrative officer, Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat said, “Chitra Santhe is being organised for the ninth consecutive year. Through this initiative we want to bring all the artists on a single platform. Besides popularising the paintings, the exhibition would also educate and encourage  upcoming artists.”

“The general perception about visual art is that it is meant for the elite class. Through this event we are laying special emphasis on encouraging artists especially from the rural area,” he added.

Around 1,500 artists from across the country have registered. Apart from Karnataka, majority of the participants are from West Bengal, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.

Another attraction of the event, apart from  Chitrakala Parishat campus, paintings will also be exhibited all along the Kumarakrupa Road, from Shivananda Circle to Crescent Road.
