Akara Art‘s newest exhibition A Playful Discourse: KG Subramanyan will show a selection of twelve wooden toys made by the eminent Indian artist and modernist K.G. Subramanyan. These toys, crafted by him in the late 1960s – 1990s, display his ability to absorb craft and the magic of making with one’s hands. The artist has often spoken of art as a language – with the ability to express through the epic narratives from myths and reality, to the small but significant gestures of making toys for both children and adults.
