Through paintings, the artists demonstrated unique interpretations dedicated to India, known as one of the most colourful countries in South Asia.
The paintings created by the artists are varied, from images of girls dancing in national costumes to the famous Taj Mahal.
In their art works, the artists also embodied motifs from Indian films, ancient cities, chess games, and majestic elephants on their canvases. This diversity has created a colourful palette that enriches our understanding of India’s cultural heritage.
The Indian Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Sridharan Madhusudhanan, who got acquainted with each work, spoke about the artists, expressing gratitude to them for their contribution to the promotion of Indian cultural wealth.
