Tirupati: Exhibitions on Bapu's works steals the show

Event organised by `Impressions' attracts many

TIRUPATI: A popular collection of paintings sketched by noted artist and film director బాపు (Bapu) are on display at Balaji Bhavan exhibition hall here.

The exhibition is conducted by `Impressions', a Vijayawada-based art promoter for the first time in Tirupati and needless to say, the `Bapu' tag has attracted a number of visitors on the first day itself.

Bapu's inimitable style of expressing his ideas with suavity and subtlety is the hallmark of the paintings.

Fancy for details

Many of his works on display revolve around Krishna, showing him as a lovable child, as a romantic lover of `Gopikas' and as a statesman in the battlefield.

The finesse of Telugu art is reflected in every inch of the canvas.

The 6ft X 1ft wooden panel depicting Ramayana in a nutshell stands as yet another highlight of the artist's deep knowledge of the epic and his fancy for details.

There are books on Mahabharata with paintings by Bapu and narration by his associate Mullapudi Venkataramana.

Budugu's show

బుడుగు (Budugu), the character of a naughty boy created by Bapu drawing inspiration from Dennis the Menace, has a gallery of his own.

In fact, there are a number of mementoes in the form of books, laminated photos and porcelain mugs depicting Budugu and girlfriend 'Seegyanapesuna' (read 'Sri Gnana Prasuna').

The expo, which is a `must watch' for all art lovers, closes on Sunday.
