HYDERABAD: ISB’s Art and creativity Club invited Ramakanth Thumrugoti, for the Artist In Residence programme for Class of 2015 recently. The students got an opportunity to interact with the artist and also got to see how a blank canvas became a festival of colours. The event ended with a fun-filled musical event and the master-piece was finally unveiled by Savita Mahajan, Deputy Dean, ISB.

The audience witnessed a pleasant merge of art and music composed by ISB’s very own talented musicians. “Every painting carries a story. It can take months to come up with a story that conveys the feelings of the artist. Once the idea is clear in artist’s mind, actual portraying on canvas then happens easily due to the years of practice of the artist,” says Ramakanth Thumrugoti. The artist says that the meaning behind the artwork can’t be portrayed with clear demarcations as is also the case with real life. “The area between two life events is blurred and that’s the reason for unclear edges in most of his art works. Pointing to a fresh artwork, he exclaims. “This painting portrays a traveler. The travel is so random that there is no beginning, no middle part and no end”. When asked by the students, the artist explains, “The art work can surely be viewed and interpreted in different contexts by different viewers, however, the artist feels delighted when the  meaning in his mind is conveyed to the viewers through his art.”
