Mangaluru June 10, 2016: Director of Alva’s theatre Study Centre Jeevan Ram Sullia inaugurated Collage Chitra Payana an exhibition of collages, created by students of Government High School Manchi at Prasad Art Gallery at Ballalbagh on June 10, Friday.
A total of 25 collages by 25 students of the school on various themes such as monuments in Hampi, villages, still life and natural land scapes are on display. The students were trained by art teacher Taranath Kairangala.
The concept of the exhibition is of the journey of an art rather than a mere exhibition, as it covers a range of topics which inspire everyone. The art of collage demands a great deal of patience as no colour is used directly. The pieces of newspapers and magazines are replaced by colour- hence, one has to cut the pieces with care and combine them together, to create an image. At least a week would be required to complete a piece of work.
The students who have exhibited their works at the expo are Haricharan, Kruthika A, Gurukumar K, Sharanya Rai, Rashmitha, Ashwitha, Abhishek, Pushpa, Ashalatha, Mohammed Masood, Vinaya Shree, Sooraj, Poornesh, Sagar, Bhavyashree, Prathesh, Navyashree, Vandana, Prateek, Prajwal, Sahan, Ankith, Srinidhi, Saujanya and Drushya.
The art works are available for sale and the gathered amount will be utilized for the betterment of the students.
