Sublime Galleria along with The Taj West End presents Elite Strokes, a collection of Contemporary Art by Renowned Artist, M.R. Deshmukh

The paintings will be on display at The Taj West End from 09-15 December and at Sublime Galleria, UB City from 16-31 December 2016.

Bangalore, India, December 8th 2016 — Sublime Galleria and Taj West End present ‘Elite Strokes’, a collection of paintings capturing the essence of natural beauty and human interactions. Created by M.R. Deshmukh, a prolific painter from the heart of the beautiful Sahyadri Mountains, the paintings will be on display from the 09-15 December at The Taj West End and 16-31 December at Sublime Galleria situated on the 8th Floor of The Collection, UB City.

The Opening Night of the exhibition will take place on Friday – 09 December 2016 at the beautiful Art Corridor at The Taj West End. Given that both The Taj West End and Sublime Galleria are strong patrons of the arts, most of the art aficionados from the city are expected to be present at the event.

M.R. Deshmukh rejects the traditional approach to countryside paintings by liquefying forms in his works and capturing the fleeting essence of nature. He’s particularly fascinated with the impact of light on the views around him and expresses this in his work. While all his paintings bear his signature style of bold, short strokes and strong colours, each piece of art tells a unique story.

M.R. Deshmukh’s works have been bought by some of the most influential art collectors in the country. His paintings have won several awards, including the Best Painting Award by Art Society of India. His works have been displayed in top commercial and hospitality properties across the country, including Hotel Taj (Bombay), Bank of America, Hindustan Unilever, and many more.

Commenting on the exhibition, Ms. Uzma Irfan – Director, Prestige Group, said, “It gives me great pleasure to present a gifted artist like M.R. Deshmukh. His paintings are unique because they capture the beauty of nature while also allowing some room for abstraction and fluidity. I invite everyone to come and enjoy these beautiful works of art. I also want to thank The Taj West End for partnering with us on this initiative. By joining hands with such a well-respected brand, we hope to offer even stronger platforms to the artists and the art community overall.”

Mr. Somnath Mukherjee – General Manager, The Taj West End added, “We’re happy to be associated with Sublime Galleria, one of South India’s foremost art galleries. The Taj West End and Sublime Galleria share a common vision – to give talented artists a platform to showcase their work, and help the city gain recognition as a fast-growing art hub. I hope the city’s art lovers enjoy M.R. Deshmukh’s works.”

Globally, art is also increasingly becoming an alternate investment option. In this year’s edition of ‘Art Bengaluru’, we have attempted to bring together distinguished artists from across the globe, thus giving people an opportunity to experience, under one roof, the multitude of art forms available. This festival is not just for the art aficionados and collectors. We hope to promote the various art forms and create a greater understanding of art in the city with this initiative. We also encourage schools to bring in their students to make the most of this festival.”

Sharing his thoughts on this festival, Mr. Rana Kapoor – M.D. & CEO, YES BANK added, “It is extremely encouraging and motivating to be a part of Art Bengaluru; this leading global cultural event will bring together the best talent in modern and contemporary art. Our association with Art Bengaluru is YES BANK’s endeavor through its newly launched YES CULTURE initiative, to further enhance India’s stature in the global Art landscape, strengthen the vibrant socio-cultural fabric of our nation and celebrate contemporary India’s rich culture and heritage on a global scale. The amalgamation of the corporate sector and Art fraternity will play a major role in augmenting India’s cultural stature globally and provide new professional avenues for our nation’s talented and creative youth.”

Mr. Suresh Jayaram – Curator, ‘YES BANK Art Bengaluru 2015’ said, “This event is a confluence of creative energies that will challenge us. The curated section will contextualize the changing dynamics of an accelerated market economy. In the Post Capitalist context, the Mall is the new Art destination for interaction in the Urban scenario. It is here, that we wish to locate Art amidst Luxury. We want the audience to pause and contemplate the creative indulgence of the artist, and their ability to question reality. We wish to create new dynamics with the visual culture of our times. This interaction with Art is another attempt to make art accessible and make it become an integral part of our life and public discourse.”

Associate Sponsor for the festival, Mr. Satya Bagla – M.D., Exclusive Motors Pvt.

The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Paradigm Shift’. In keeping with this theme, ‘YES BANK Art Bengaluru 2015’ hopes to promote a discovery of the arts from a change-inducing standpoint.

The rich interiors of The Collection, UB City will also be transformed to complement this year’s theme.

About ‘Art Bengaluru’:
Launched in March 2010, ‘Art Bengaluru’ was started with the aim of celebrating art in its various forms. The idea behind the 10-day festival was to bring a multitude of artists and art forms from across India and the world under one roof, thus promoting art awareness as well as a deeper understanding of the arts. With advances in technology, as the world of Art grew to include newer and more exciting forms, ‘Art Bengaluru’ grew with it. After five successful editions, this annual art soiree has grown to become one of the most reputed art festivals in India today.

The venue for Art Bengaluru is the highly-acclaimed, The Collection, UB City, which is conveniently located in the heart of cosmopolitan Bangalore. Needless to say, the Tuscan architecture of UB City complements the art festival by creating an illusion of fluent expanse. Art displayed in this landmark area promises to enhance aesthetic awareness and create a sensory delight for the viewer.

YES BANK, India’s fifth largest private sector Bank with a pan India presence across all 29 states and 7 Union Territories of India, headquartered in the Lower Parel Innovation District (LPID) of Mumbai, is the outcome of the professional & entrepreneurial commitment of its Founder Rana Kapoor and its top management team, to establish a high quality, customer centric, service driven, private Indian Bank catering to the future businesses of India.

YES BANK has adopted international best practices, the highest standards of service quality and operational excellence, and offers comprehensive banking and financial solutions to all its valued customers.

YES BANK has a knowledge-driven approach to banking, and offers a superior customer experience for its retail, corporate and emerging corporate banking clients. YES BANK is steadily evolving as the Professionals’ Bank of India with the long term mission of “Building the Best Quality Bank of the World in India” by 2020.

About the Bentley Mulsanne:
The Mulsanne is much more than a simple pairing of luxury with power. Its fearsome acceleration, for example, is felt not as a sudden blast forward, but as a smooth surge of seemingly limitless power. The character of the V8 engine note, barely perceptible from inside the cabin while the car is cruising, builds to a rich, powerful roar on acceleration when the throttle is opened wide. For those with the drive to change the world, the Mulsanne is much more than a supremely comfortable car. It is both a place to make plans and a catalyst that can make them happen. The Mulsanne benefits from a re-engineered V8 engine, providing extra range and improvements in efficiency of 13%. Yet with an 8-speed automatic transmission boasting an electronic shift interface, there is no compromise on performance: The Mulsanne is capable of 184 mph (296 km/h). While a Sport mode exists for the serious driver – complete with a steering wheel-mounted paddleshift system – it is important to note that the Mulsanne was built for more than dynamic driving. Because life is about more than the speed one can get from A to B. It’s about the quality of the driving experience and the style in which the story is written.

About the projects:

* Dynamic Geometries
A collaborative site-specific multimedia performance by reputed international dancer/choreographer, Sonia Rodriguez and respected filmmaker, Ujjwal Utkarsh, using movement, music, digital art and sound. The collaboration is with the Attakkalari Talent Academy and Srishti. The overarching theme aims to showcase how the urban environment /architecture of our cities influence our experience, evokes our memories and fuels our imagination.

* Performing Systems
Created by Sofy – media artist and educator working with video, interactivity, projections, code, paper, and salvaged material. “Performing Systems” is a live interactive performance with light and sound, using generative electronic music and art that takes an iterative form. The focus is visual composition, writing one’s own performance software and performing.

* Story of Light
This has been created by Yashas Shetty (artist and educator working between various disciplines including installation, sound, software and biotechnology) and Jatin Vidyarthi (sound artist and electronic music producer). In this exhibit, the artists along with the students have explored the nature of light as a medium and re-imagined light through installations, sound works and other experiments in the form of sonic works, kinetic sculptures, interactive installations and films, which will be showcased in ‘The Story of Light Festival’ in Goa. The year 2015 is the ‘Year of Light’ at the festival and CEMA at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology has been invited as a content partner, and to showcase work at this reputed festival.

* Sonic Beams
Created by Professor Cathy Lane (composer, sound artist, lecturer and researcher) and Sindhu Thirumalaisamy (artist and filmmaker), “Sonic Beams” is a sonic/audio/visual installation that locates itself to the lighthouses in Fort Kochi and around Kochi. Utilizing maritime history, myths, local folklore, oral history, shipping records, architecture, data, sounds of ships, waves, etc. the project aims to create a narrative, frame an archive and provide a dynamic experience of life around the sea.

* TATE: Global Art Space
Created by Michelle Williams Gamaker, whose work deals with performances and complex renderings of reality via documentary, fiction and video installation in collaboration with artist and textile designer, Meera, “Global Art Space” is a collaborative project with TATE UK, Central St. Martins London, Kochi Muzhris Biennale and Srishti. It explores and interacts with the local environment in London and India via performance and photography with the view to show artistic interpretations to a wider (global) audience through TATE Gallery, online exhibition and the Biennale in Kochi. The participation is about reenacting, recreating, and reinterpreting the artistic ‘Generative’. A group of students in CSM, London, and Srishti School Bangalore have already created this generative in the first part of the project, led by artist Michelle Gamakar. The outcome will be a series of exhibitions in all the venues mentioned above.

About ‘The Interim’:
The Interim operates as an inter-disciplinary open-ended platform and framework for learning through engagement with various artistic and creative practices and processes.

Projects curated are socially and culturally contextualized with art and design, leading students beyond the campus and classroom into the public realm. The Interim functions as a community arts initiative to explore contemporary social-cultural and political issues. Rural migration, religious diversity, class, money, caste, loss of traditions, creeping in of new traditions, commercialization, abundance of technology and the ubiquity of information, and gender politics are some of the realities than bind and shape our interactions. These realities create conflicting values and result in contrasting economic and social development, often leading to political apathy, corruption, etc.

It is in this space that art and media can be used as interventions to initiate dialogue, provide new spaces and places of expression, document and archive loss, memory, understand how natural phenomenon (climate, sound pollution, genetic crops, etc.) interact with the social world to create sustainable frameworks for engagement and change.

The project pragmatically pushes the boundaries of experimentation with various forms of expression, participation and narration. Through a variety of lenses, paradigm, practices and materials, the students work with ideas and concepts in the field with artists and designers to explore, create, understand, represent, and construct our understanding of our social and natural realities.

Jaguar ‘Trousseau Week 2014’ All Set to Celebrate the Diverse Cultural Beauty of the Traditional Indian Wedding

Presented by The Collection, UB City in association with Sublime Galleria and supported by the Prestige Group, Jaguar Trousseau Week 2014 will be on from 21st to 30th November 2014.

Bangalore, India, November 19th, 2014 — India is probably the only country in the world to boast of such a widely diverse population, comprising of people from different religions, cultures and communities. With varied traditional wear, rituals and customs, India is also considered an extremely colorful country, with more than two thousand ethnic groups, living together in unity. The 5th Edition of ‘Trousseau Week’ aims to celebrate the rich cultural diversity and traditions of the Indian wedding.

Presented by The Collection, UB City in association with Sublime Galleria and supported by the Prestige Group, Jaguar Trousseau Week 2014 will be on from 21st to 30th November 2014. The 10-day long wedding festival will provide all Wedding Planning, Design and Consulting needs under one roof, with the help of some of the trendiest international and national luxury brands in the world today on one hand, and Indian artisans and weavers on the other.

Sharing her thoughts on this year’s line-up of activities, Uzma Irfan – Additional Director, Prestige Group and Founder, Sublime Galleria said, “One of the most beautiful qualities of the Indian culture is that it is inclusive. The younger generation is not just limiting themselves to their own rituals and customs, but celebrating all traditions and festivals across communities as one unit. Also, with a rapid increase in the number of inter-religious and inter-communal marriages, people have started adopting the best from all cultures across the country. This year, ‘Jaguar Trousseau Week’ will focus on the rich culture and heritage that defines an Indian wedding, with special emphasis on the artisans who have helped keep our traditions alive by their contribution to the handloom/handwoven industry.

About Jaguar Trousseau Week 2014:
An Indian wedding today includes the most fun rituals from all cultures and is an amalgamation of activities leading up to the actual wedding. The ‘Sangeet’ ceremony, which was primarily a North Indian custom, has now found its place in every wedding across the country. And even though people have adopted the Western culture with fervor in India, what has remained constant is traditional clothes and jewellery, donned by everyone – family and friends alike, during the various wedding ceremonies. This year’s Trousseau Week pays a special tribute to the artisans who have contributed immensely to keep this industry alive. The festival will provide an opportunity to all visiting UB City to try their hand at some interactive weaving, guided by a weaver, at a handloom that will be installed there. Pragati Mathur – Textile Designer and Weaving Artist who is bringing this to UB City will also be available to accept orders for the elusive handloom/handwoven sarees, shawls, dupattas and wall textiles, etc. Orders can be placed on the basis of samples available for visual reference. In addition, Jaguar Trousseau Week 2014 will provide the best of wedding couture, wedding planners, designers, wedding photographers, banquets, tourism boards and international & national luxury brands, all on one platform.

This year’s theme is “The Traditional Indian Wedding” and the fluid expanse of The Collection, UB City will be transformed to complement this theme. The space will be accentuated with theme-based installations like an enormous wedding cake, a bejeweled groom pagdi, photo frame hangings, and an in-lit elephant sculpture. Smaller rituals will also be depicted using similar installations. For example, a giant groom mojri will be installed for the ‘Joota Chupai’ ceremony, larger than life kaliras will be installed to speak of the associated ceremony, and a decorated swing will be installed to signify yet another South Indian custom – ‘Oonchal’.

Lounges at Jaguar Trousseau Week 2014:
In its 5th Edition, ‘Trousseau Week’ has truly surpassed all previous benchmarks. With participation from stalwarts of the fashion design industry like Neeta Lulla, Raghavendra Rathore, JJ Valaya and Satya Paul, the event this year is a dream come true for brides and grooms to be. Now to plan the perfect wedding couture for their dream wedding, they will not have to travel to either Mumbai or Delhi. They can interact with the best designers in India and try out their latest collections, all in UB City. In addition, soon to be brides and grooms can also check out the sought-after F-Type and XJ models of Jaguar, which will be present at The Collection, UB City throughout the event.

Sublime Galleria to Hold An Exclusive Exhibition of Paintings by Children from Christel House

The Collection will feature works by Children from Kindergarten to Grade 12, between 25th September and 25th October 2014.

Bangalore, India, September 25, 2014 — In continuation with their philanthropic endeavors to help communities through art, Sublime Galleria will hold an exclusive exhibition of paintings by the Children of Christel House, India. The collection will go LIVE on 25th September and continue till 25th October 2014, and would feature the works of kids from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

The theme of the exhibition is Art by Children and is not limited to focus on any one area, thus, allowing each child to explore the world around him/her through art. The medium of the paintings will be Acrylic on Canvas and the size of each work, would range from (2ft x 2ft) to (6ft x 8ft).

The children at Christel House, India belong to weaker sections of society and the medium of art has proved to be an effective way for them to express themselves creatively. Their Art Program is integral in shaping their personalities and is often seen to be therapeutic for them.

According to Raju Shahani, Managing Director, Christel House India, “At Christel House, we believe that our students can reach their highest potential with a cultivated capacity for imagination. We strive to channelize the creativity in every child by encouraging free expression through various art forms. Our Art Program is integral to our approach in shaping personalities of these impoverished children and helping them express themselves clearly and convincingly. We have found that this focus on art has at times been therapuetic for children going through any learning disability or emotional distress due to their abused background. We are grateful to Sublime Galleria for their offer space and resources to promote art talent of the Christel House children.”

Christel House & Art:
Christel House students have won several international awards and scholarships for their audio visual creations, another creative expression vertical, the most recent being the 2014 Adobe Youth Voices Scholarship. With 118 applications from around the world, three Christel House students from Bangalore made it to the list of Top 25, for their creative skills to change their communities. In another recent example, the children from Christel House India from Grade 7 and above worked for 5 months to develop a document on corruption that went on to win the Best Documentary Award (School Student Category) in the much acclaimed 3rd Bangalore Shorts International Film Festival in 2014. The children used path-breaking techniques for producing and directing the movie such as the Green Screen technique of shooting which is used to create special effects in professional cinema.

Christel House students also participate regularly in Berserk – a unique creative conference that helps hone a child’s artistic abilities.

The Christel House curriculum for the visual arts includes:
* Drawing & Painting
* Collage
* Printmaking
* Decoration
