“We have always believed that cinema and other fine arts & performing arts go together. With every festival we must have an exhibition of paintings. This time we have brought the concept of Mother and Child by Tanisha Bakshi. Indian films are also popular because of the importance of mother we have been depicting on big screen. This exhibition is the representation of the same,” expressed Dr. Sandeep Marwah introducing the artist.
“Through my artworks I want to show the real and unimaginable life of the people where all they have is a fragile economic condition but a very powerful blessing and that is an ounce of love. They do not have the luxuries, but they chose to be happy with what they have. “A mother’s love is Universal. And for me, her love is my biggest Inspiration! “ added Tanisha.
The exhibition will remain open for three days of the festival. The event was supported by Indo Ireland Film and Cultural Forum, International Chamber of Media and Entertainment Industry and World Peace Development and Research Foundation.
