It was a rare experience for Delhites to watch and enjoy a unique Exhibition of Art Works by eminent Russian artist Andrey Karpov, entitled “Russia and India – Penetration of Cultures” which will remain truly symbolic of the cultural affinity between the two countries. An eloquent expression of Indian life, art and culture, tradition, religion and architecture, environment and scenic beauty constituted the theme of the Russian artist in the art works on display at the exhibition. It is to be borne in mind that Andrey Karpov is one of those who decided to declare his love to the Great Civilization—India.
The exhibition, which was opened at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) in New Delhi on December 6, 2016 to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Diplomatic Relations between Russia and India, will remain open for general public from 10.00 a.m. to 7. 00 p.m. until December 23, 2016 (except on Sundays).
The Russian artist Mr Andrey Karpov and his wife Ms. Elena Adamova were present on the occasion.
The dignitaries, who participated in the inaugural ceremony, comprised Dr. Sudhakar Sharma, Secretary, Lalit Kala Akademy (Chief Guest), noted Indian Painter Padma Bhushan Mr. Jatin Das (Guest of Honour), Ms. Tripat K. Kalra, Director, Nvya Art Gallery, Major Dalbir Singh, Secretary, AICC, Ms. Surjit Akre, Chairman, Roerich Art Club, RCSC, Mr. Sergey Karmalito, Senior Counsellor, Embassy of the Russian Federation in India, and Mr. Fedor Rozovskiy, Director, RCSC.
An elite gathering drawn from the Capital, consisting of artists, art-lovers, art critics, parliamentarians, teachers, students, political activists, Russian compatriots, media men and others attended the colourful event.
In his thought-provoking and interesting observation, Dr. Sudhakar Sharma lauded the commendable role played by the RCSC in bringing to the immense benefit of Indian artists and art enthusiasts the precious art works of Russian geniuses like Andrey Karpov, a signal contribution worth mentioning in the strengthening of cultural relations between India and Russia. Showcasing such artistic treasure would serve to inspire both professional and amateur artists in the long run, he added.
Laying emphasis on the well-timed organisation of such a significant exhibition of art works by a prominent Russian artist, Mr. Sergey Karmalito referred to the series of note-worthy cultural programmes to be held at the RCSC to mark the celebration of the historic 70th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between Russia and India. He underscored the spiritual and philosophical inclination evident in the art works testifying the artistic instinct of Andrey Karpov, which is worth emulating for future generation.
Living in Moscow, equipped with graduation from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Andrey Karpov is working for more than 30 years. He has mastered in various paintings and graphic techniques, illustrated books, made porcelain and ceramic plates, tile murals and carpets. Called as “intellectual naive” by art critics, there are a lot of humour and warm-heartedness in his multi-figure compositions. The ironical and paradoxical paintings of Andrey Karpov are popular among gallery-owners, collectors and trade-buyers world-wide. His works are in various foundations, corporate and private collections in various countries across the world.
