Celebrity curator Nisha JamVwal presents artist Lata Balakrishna

Nisha JamVwal, celebrity columnist, art curator, interior architect and interior stylist presents Lata Balakrishna, a Morden contemporary indian artist whose oeuvre she showcased at the Taj Mahal Hotel Art Gallery that has also exhibited works by the legendary MF Husain and FN Souza. Says JamVwal “Lata Balakrishna invited me to see her work as many artists do all over the world with the desire that I host a solo show for them. I went without expecting much as I almost always do. It would be an understatement to say that I was moved by what I interpreted as canvasas that speak of a  flow of life with a riot of colored nuances and experience. The chiaroscuro of of shadow and sunshine, the showers of color in meandering waters drew me into her world, where the title ‘meandering’ came to me not only because of a travel junkie thirsting to explore a world outside her childhood in Jalandar, but I saw her art as journey exploring her own mind. Women all over the world face challenges multitasking home and work, ever the champions who go through life traipsing over hurdles  that life poses. Often employed at work outside and running a home simultaneously bearing babies and rearing them, caring and managing the family needs- the story is deeply etched in the Indian scenario and culture of joint families, arranged matrimony and the ensuing characteristics of all this in the predominantly male chauvinistic society that is India. In Lata’s works I am lost in a kaleidoscope of emotions that play out using symbolic metaphor as tools of expression seeking more from life; breaking free from the regimented routine hurdles and monotonous repetitive mundane.” The show will open with a grand dinner at Recca Kala Ghoda followed by gala high teas that spread over four days – welcoming famed collectors, architects, artists, socialites and other celebrities.

His last release as a producer and director was End Counter in 2019 featuring Prashant Narayan, Mrinmal Kolwalkar, Abhimanyu Singh and others. The film was critically appreciated and did average business at the ticket windows.

In the last couple of years, the OTT platforms have come in a big way and the filmmakers are all embracing it due to the closure of cinema halls. Digital platforms too have become instrumental in content and talent. It had not only given a break to new or less appreciated talents but is also bringing a diverse range of projects,” says Alok Shrivastava. Shrivastava further adds, “My film End Counter had actors who were considered rank outsiders in the film industry. Abhimanyu Singh had made his debut with great films like Aks followed by Gulaal, Rakta Charitra , Genius, Mom and others while Prashant Narayanan is known for his roles in films like Waisa Bhi Hota Hai – II, Shadows of Time, Bombil and Beatrice, Via Darjeeling and _Murder 2. Despite getting rave reviews, and praised for their performances; their  struggle did continued to get the work they deserved. It was the Southern film industry that beckoned their talents. Time and again established and semi-established actors from Bollywood migrate to Tollywood and then again come back to the fore.” He further says, “It may also be noted vice-versa where actors from the South like Rajnikanth, Kamal Hassan and Nagarjuna after doing great films in...
