Noted artist Dharminder Sharma on Saturday opened an exhibition of his art work comprising of miniatures and paintings at the art gallery. The artist who has been working to promote abstract modern art through various media has attempted to amalgamate abstract with miniature style of paintings.

I have tried to bring abstract elements to miniature paintings by using single subject like a helicopter or a balloon and using colourful compositions. This particular style of art is stuck in regional boundaries but I want to revive it among the city art fraternity. Dharminder Sharma, noted artist

Over 40 works have been displayed out of which 25 are miniatures. Sharma says the miniatures are usually traditionally made with royal themes and motifs, using conventional subjects. “I have tried to bring in abstract elements to miniature paintings by using single subject like a helicopter or a balloon and using colourful compositions. This particular style of art is stuck in regional boundaries but I want to revive it among the city art fraternity,” he said.

Apart from miniatures, other paintings by Sharma are done in acrylic, his forte and have varied themes. Sharma has been been on experimenting with medium and has also worked with spray paints and street art genres. He said contemporary context of art needs to be looked in a different way, with more room for experimentation.

“With the popularity of the street art form across the globe and introduction of contemporary techniques, using tools that don’t require traditional canvases themes will bring in more curiosity from art patrons as well as students of art,” he said. Meanwhile, those exhibition will continue till November 10.
