Guest Interaction with Artist Satish Gupta



26-Jun: Senior students of class 11 & 12 and art students of class 9 had the opportunity to interact with Shri Satish Gupta, a versatile artist – a painter, sculptor, poet, writer, printmaker, skilled draftsman, muralist, designer, calligrapher and ceramicist all in one. Winning the Sanskriti award at an early stage in his career, his work, honed through a deep engagement with mysticism and Zen spirit, has been exhibited in more than 33 solo shows at important art galleries within the country and abroad. His works include a 13 feet high Surya sculpture in copper exhibited at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, a monumental five piece metal sculpture inspired by the five elements located in the atrium at the Jindal Centre in New Delhi, a 30 feet mural at the Bengaluru International Airport, and the Utsav Murti of the Goddess Linga Bhairavi which resides in the Devi Temple of the Isha Yoga Centre.  He spoke about his evolution as an artist, shared specific works and the techniques and processes that he used, and ended the session with an interactive Q & A.
