Satish Gujral gets Amity Lifetime Achievement Award for Art

Eminent Artist Satish Gujral was honoured with Amity Lifetime Achievement Award for Art here at Amity on Tuesday.


Noida, March 30 : Eminent Artist Satish Gujral was honoured with "Amity Lifetime Achievement Award for Art" here at Amity on Tuesday.

Gujaral was honoured by Ms. Divya Chauhan- Chairperson, Amity School of Fine Arts (ASFA) and Amity School of Fashion Technology (ASFT) at the two-day " Kreativ 10", the annual Fashion and Art event by Amity School of Fine Arts (ASFA) and Amity School of Fashion Technology (ASFT).

Mr. Gujral was accompanied by his wife, Ms. Kiran Gujral. Later, the couple inaugurated " SRIJAN", an exhibition and display of the works of graduating students of Amity School of Fine Arts.

Also present during the seminar were Maj. Gen K J Singh- Vice Chancellor, Amity University, Uttar Pradesh; Dr. B Shukla- Pro Vice Chancellor (A), Amity University, Dr. Pradeep Joshi- Director, Amity School of Fine Arts (ASFA) and Amity School of Fashion Technology (ASFT).

The award ceremony was followed by a seminar.

The event started with a talk show on " Indian Art in Global Scenario" in which renowned artists Mr. Keshav Malik - Sr. Art Critic; Mr. Suneet Chopra- Sr. Art Critic; Ms. Mithu Sen- Artist; Mr. M. Ramachandran- Regional Secretary, Lalit Kala Academy, Delhi and Ms. Rosshni Vadhera- Vadhera Art Gallery presented their views.

"Art is an investment and investment is not a speculation. Investment is putting your financial support in a particular form of art so that something beautiful develops. And, the best investment in art is to invest in an artist," said Suneet Chopra, the art critic.

While presenting his views, during the seminar M. Ramachandran, Regional Secretary, Lalit Kala Academy, Delhi said: "Art is related to life and it has the potential to depict the myriad hues of life. Most of the countries in East or West are not blessed with the variety India is blessed with. There is creativity in every form of art whether it is painting, photography or fashion. Art gives an artist complete freedom of articulation. An artist has the knack to notice the most subtle aspect of things which others can't see."

He called upon the students to incessantly upgrade their knowledge which will add on to their experience and make them look at the world in a clearer and better way.
