Badal Nanjundaswamy is no stranger to Mysoreans. He has always been in news for his unique art works. Be it the traditional style of art or the 3D art, every work of his is based on a social theme. Badal has now come out with a set of paintings titled ‘Machine Manushya’, through which he tries to explain how man has become mechanical.
Over the past few years we as human beings have become dependent on machines and the situation is such that life doesn’t move on without the machines. Badal through this paintings has tried to explain the mindset of people, who are constantly thinking in terms of buying cars, plots, houses and other things to make their lives comfortable.
Though all the paintings are unique, there is one art work which catches the attention of the people. The painting is based on the rural women through which the artist tries to explain how the rural women still continue to work without depending on machines.
Speaking to Star of Mysore, Badal said the paintings to be exhibited gives an insight into the current world in which people are living. “Mechanical life has become a daily routine. Places which are meant to bring down stress have become commercial. I have only tried to explain the current situation of the society through my paintings”, says Badal.
Badal has been working for the past 5 years on the art works which will be displayed for the public from this evening. He has used the colour pens and acrylic to come out with one of his best art works.
The exhibition will be inaugurated by MLA Vasu at 5.30 pm at the Sabrang Art Gallery, near Bake Point, Saraswathipuram. The exhibition will be held till September 5 between 10.30 am and 8 pm.
