Abstractionist Sultan deals with various urban issuesCultural Correspondent
Artist Tipu Sultan’s five-day solo exhibition titled Miscellaneous at the Drik Gallery features 40 abstract paintings done in acrylic on canvas.
Special features of Sultan’s compositions are the use of shapes and vibrant colours through which the abstractionist has expressed his emotion those address others’ feelings as well.
The self-titled painting of the show Miscellaneous deals with diverse issues of the complicated urban with pest colour tinted rectangular shapes on the background of the painting apparently resembling the structure of the society, and the deep blue and black shades on the foreground apparently gives the impression of the feelings of the artist.
Another abstract painting titled City of Divine, on the other hand, gives a view of the sun in the jungle of the skyscrapers, which city dwellers miss in the urban life.
The different shades of blue in his painting Aquarium create an illusion on the viewers mind. Blue also dominates in the painting City 5, which portrays geometrical shapes of square, rectangle and triangle. The artist in the painting has created spectacular contrast with crimson red shades.
Tipu Sultan’s wall series is also an attractive display of the show. He has created an artistic impression of the moss on the wall with large strokes of brown and black in his Rhyme of Wall.
His experimentation with different shades of red, which is usually not preferred by the urban artists, in the Wall 3 is also very interesting.
Another experimental painting in the show titled Ingress 2 also attracts the attention of the viewers for its unique blending of different shades of red, yellow, black and pink.
Sponsored by AB Bank and Citycell, New Age is printing media partner of the exhibition which will continue from January 09 toJanuary 13.
