Gallerie Nvyā presents a solo show of works by Ramesh Gorjala titled Vāhana.
The show features indian mythological figures and their devoted vāhanas in mixed media inspired by Kalamkari. Those familiar with the Indian visual mores would know the indispensability of a deity’s vāhana, the sacred animals and birds that are said to be their divine vehicles, to the deity’s esse. Contemporary artist Ramesh Gorjala, who was born in the family of weavers and learnt the folk art of Kalamkari from his uncle and award winning Kalamkari artist Balaji Theretham, has been inspired by Indian gods and goddesses and has dedicated his current solo show titled Vāhana, to a deep, meditative study of the iconography of Indian deities and their vāhanas via his mixed media on canvas works.
