Chitrakala is a summation of 40+ years of Mahendra J Rathod’s artwork. The diverse collection includes wildlife, landscapes, human portraits and abstracts ranging from traditional to contemporary art. It also features paintings of celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Bruce Lee, Shashi Kapoor and Dev Anand. He has used various techniques like water colour, oil paint, ink & pencil drawing, gouache paint. Having recently moved into the local vicinity, he wants to introduce himself and present everyone with the beauty of art. His inspiration for exhibition is best described in one of Pablo Picasso’s quote - “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls

Mahendra J Rathod will be exhibiting in the Gallery from Saturday 30th March to Friday 31st May



 Spotlight on a local artist : Mo Negm

A small collection of Mo Negm's art is on display on the first floor of The Curve. His works will be on display for the whole of May 1-31 May

Mo's art is inspired by identity, socio-political events, and engaging with new experiences. As a young artist of Arab heritage, many natural inspirations add to the western influence he draws on, through his lens as a British Egyptian.

He find expression through his background, as an Egyptian, which offers many experiences to inform his art, and to encounter and challenge his identity through contemplation of issues.  He enjoys the element of discovery when painting, experimenting with techniques, and sometimes giving the paint freedom to choose its own paths.

This exhibition is part of Cityread London - a month long celebration of a single book - Sofia Khan is not obliged. It aims to tie into themes of self expression, identity and personal experiences. Look out for a range of events happening in libraries throughout May (more information and booking for CityRead London events)

A larger exhibition of his work will be on display in The Gallery in June.
