As part of our endeavours, Artscapes, in association with The Times of India and Ireo Waterfront, launched Ludhiana Art Beat (LAB), a unique platform to identify, recognise and promote talented artists in Ludhiana and in the entire state of Punjab. As part of the mega-event, thirty shortlisted finalists got a chance to exhibit their work. There was a live workshop conducted by a celebrity artist followed by a lecture. Live band concert and lip-smacking food stalls were other attractions.
Our guest at the inauguration ceremony of the Ludhiana event was eminent artist Kalicharan Gupta, whose works mostly deal with urban life and landscape. The very next day, he held a one-day workshop for budding artists by sharing valuable tips with them. He guided the artists of tomorrow on various nuances of this complex field, including the understanding of imagery and how to form a distinct idiom. We at Artscapes are proud to associate with an artist of such a high repute.
