The limitless art of A Ramachandran

Emami Art, Kolkata, is presenting a significant body of recent work by artist A. Ramachandran, in collaboration with Delhi-based Vadehra Art Gallery. Curated by R Siva Kumar, the exhibition titled ‘Songs of Reclamation’ features 240 works spread over three floors. One gets to see different facets of the artist—as a sculptor, a draughtsman, and a designer of books for children. Ramachandran has often called himself a ‘bohurupi’ in Indian art as he does not adhere to limitations. “Ramachandran is an artist who has an old connection with Kolkata. It is here that he found his first inspiration and subject matter as an artist. The exhibition of his work provides a rare opportunity for the city to know his work closely,” states R Siva Kumar. ‘Songs of Reclamation’ can be viewed at Emami Art, Kolkata, till 31 December, 11 am to 6 pm, closed on Monday
