Hyd to celebrate its 425th anniversary
Hyderabad has brought four artists together from different media for celebrating its 425th anniversary. Poushali Das through block painting, Amith Mehra with the help of his photography skills, Orjit Sen through his digital art and Prathap Modi with his prints, would show the citizens a new side of Hyderabad that they had never seen. Poushali Das, who is one amongst the four artists, says that, she will be doing block printing on silk for her art piece. Whereas another artist Prathap Modi says that, his idea is to create etchings with all the elements that make the city iconic. On the other hand, Orjit Sen from digital media says that, he will be using the solitary baniyan tree in Shalibanda, which has kites entangled on it, as a means to communicate on the way the old and new meet in the city. Whereas Amith Mehra, an artist from photography media says that, he will be finding the similarities between old and new as the city has the blend of both.
