Ten-second takeaway

Four artists from Maharashtra take centre stage at Myth and Muse as they bring to town their latest works that are tales of mythology on canvas.

Exploring folklore

Myth and Muse is the latest exhibition to kick off at Kynkyny Art, and it comes with great promise. Starting January 23, you can gaze at the works of Arvind Kolapkar, Datta Bansode, Devdatta Padekar and Sujata Achrekar, all artists from Maharashtra. While they weave a tapestry of narrative threads, each artist’s approach is very different and their muses reflect in their work. From religion, folklore and mythology to nature, love and music, there’s plenty to be intrigued by and much more to imagine.

Expect Kolapkar’s works to be bright and happy, Bansode’s (best known for his Buddha paintings) are more contemporary, Achrekar’s art is super compelling and will reel you in with hypnotic faces and magnetic colours and Padekar will showcase the real and emotional work he is well-known for. While it may be steeped in the past, the works do offer a psychological and political insight of life in current times. So go ahead, try and get onto the same page as the artists.
