arteria – Imaging Thiruvananthapuram

IMAG0812arteria-2015, one of the largest public art projects of India, conceived by the District Tourism Promotion Council, Thiruvananthapuram has concepted its first stride. Supported by Department of Tourism, Govt. of Kerala; this mega art, curated by Dr. G Ajith Kumar, in the first phase has rendered the encircling wall of the University Stadium at Palayam with the creative murals composed by artists including Shri. Kanayi Kunjiraman, Shri. Kattoor Narayana Pillai, Shri. B.D Dethan, Shri. N.N Rimzon, Shri. Tensing Joseph, Shri. Nemom Pushparaj, Shri. Pradeep Puthoor, Shri. Prasanna Kumar, Shri. Chandran T.V, Shri. Sreelal S, Shri. Sreenandanan, Shri. Sunil Kovalam, Shri. Jayachandran.V, Shri. Vijayan Neyyattinkara, Shri. Robert Lopez, Shri. Mohanan Nedumangadu, Shri. Shibu Chand, Charutha Reghunath, Shri. Saj R Swamy, Rachana Vijith and Shri. Vijith.

By re-directing the public eye to those artistic expressions, this larger canvas unfolds immense possibility for everyone to become part of a new visual culture that Thiruvananthapuram City is lacking. The project with this dimension seems to have no resemblance with any part of the world, except a few sporadic instances. Its distinction will definitely lead the city to carve out a significant place in the cultural landscape of the world.
