Delhi artist in race for prestigious art award
A Delhi-based artist has made it to the final list of a prestigious art award, along with other four others from different parts of India, organisers announced Tuesday.
Tauseef Khan (Delhi), Sirivella Pragathikumar and Shrimanti Saha (both Vadodra), Ravishankar (Chennai) and Chetnaa Verma (Noida) were shortlisted after a ten-member jury list rigorously scanned over 4,500 works by 1,800 artists for the Glenfiddich "Emergining Artist of the Year 2014" award, which is in its third edition.
The works of the five finalists will be displayed at a gallery in Gurgaon April 4.
On the same day, the winner of the contest will be announced and will receive a cash prize, and a chance to go for a three months residency programme in Scotland.
The Delhi-based artist's artwork "Burj Reflection Coliseum Reflection", is about how we view history through the prism of today, how it is constantly shifting and changing according to our contemporary perspectives.
