Behala Baganbari – a mere place within the coronary heart of south Kolkata, was not a well-known place in any respect. An initiative taken just a few days in the past makes this place a widely known one throughout the area of Kolkata & overseas.
“Behala Artwork Fest” (A bunch of younger gifted artists) and the group of latest Bengali serial “Gantchhora” (telecasting in Star Jalsha) got here collectively for a singular venture and painted the partitions of Behala Baganbari to show this place into a fantastic one which one can ever anticipate. There was a specific theme based mostly on which your complete wall artwork has been completed & the identical was Bengali Wedding ceremony. The thought was to create one thing distinctive and delightful for the individuals residing there and provides them a change after nearly two years of the pandemic. The thought lastly has taken place & the atypical slim lanes flip into vibrant colourful partitions with the contact of the artists. There have been greater than 15 artists underneath the management of “Sanatan Dinda” who labored on the venture. It took about greater than two weeks to finish the work with the permission & the large assist of native individuals & they appreciated it very a lot after its completion.
The artists selected this specific space as a result of it has many empty partitions and these are very helpful to execute such work. Not solely that, the locals are additionally very pleasant & they gave their variety permission for such work additionally, prolonged their useful fingers throughout your complete work to make this factor occur. Together with the partitions and the boundaries, the home windows and the doorways of every home have additionally been painted by them. Moreover, every of the close to about 60 households residing there has obtained particular presents like saris and different equipment, from the members of the fest.
The aim of masking this lovely place is, I need to see the involvement of artwork in our each day life. Each individual & his/her actions one way or the other is linked with some type of artwork. The particular second with some particular artwork denotes one thing very particular. It tells a narrative, it evokes emotion which is usually unusual to others. With this lovely creation of some younger artists I need to style this hidden reality & seize some moments inside my capacity.
