FV Chikmath Paintings

Paintings which adorn this year's exhibition brochure are created by the artist Sri F.V. Chikmath from Dharwad. Getting trained in traditional Surpur miniature paintings Chikmath later interpreted this traditional idiom with a blend of his creativity on canvas in acrylic medium. When we at Ramsons Kala Pratishtana came across his impressive works, we asked him whether he can do a couple of canvases with board game theme and he readily agreed. The result is below for you to see.

 Here you can see a couple playing the popular board game of Karnataka - Chaukabara which is called by several other names in and outside the state.

This canvas depicts another pair engrossed in the game of Nav Keti keta, a war game.
