The artist K.S. Kamesh said that “the total entries 307 works have been selected and we are one among them,” “Both of us are childhood friends and shared the same passion,” said by G.S. Vasu.
Being an artist, Vasu is also an accomplished sculptor and used fiberglass moulds and wood as medium. Kamesh on the other hand is an art teacher at Bal Bharathi School in NTPC, Visakhapatnam.
In last couple of years the both artists are working on different themes. The main theme of Kamesh’s theme is ‘get-together,’ Vasu has been working on tribal life.
Kamesh said that, “human relationship is the essence of life in this world and in the present context it is losing its meaning amidst workload and stress. My theme ‘get-together’ is to bring back the idea of human relationship through get-togethers.”
In tribal culture, Vasu has taken their daily life style as his central theme. Vasu feels that tribal culture and lifestyle is unique and colorful and he has reflected that on his canvas. The both artists have used acrylic on canvas, as their medium.
For Kamesh it will be his second visit to Taiwan, participated in a number of arts shows in the country and winning prizes.
