Kolkata: An exhibition on the artworks of KG Subramanyan, on the theme ‘War of the Relics’, was inaugurated on Thursday at the Victoria Memorial Hall by noted filmmaker Goutam Ghosh.

KG Subramanyan, one of the few noted artists of India, graduated with a degree in Modern Art from Visva Bharati University in Shantiniketan, under the patronage of famed artist Nandalal Basu. After his graduation, he moved to Vadodara to join the newly formed Maharaja Sayajirao University as an academic.

“Throughout my entire life I follow the principles of Gandhi. So I choose this profession to act as a voice of the voiceless,” quoted KG Subramanyan in his biography by Gulam Mohammed Sheikh named ‘The World in Many Guises’.

The week-long art exhibition will end on December 10. A film on the artist’s work ‘Through the lens of KG Subramanyan’ will be shown on December 7 at the exhibition.

Dr Jayanta Sengupta, curator of the Victoria Memorial Hall said, “It’s an honor to be exhibiting KG Subramanyan’s works. I pay my heartiest congratulation to the entire Seagull team.”
