Day 2 of Art in Industry saw the artists begin work on their canvases. The atmosphere was eclectic as thoughts came to life with colours. The day ended with everyone waiting in anticipation to view all the artwork created.

Appreciation of art with RB Bhaskaran

Mr Bhaskaran encouraged one and all to express themselves through art, with dedication, adding that one should hold on their chosen subject till the time it has found a sense of oneness with the artist before moving to the next subject. "In my case," said Mr Bhaskaran, "I am still working at the 'Cat'. While the subject is still at that, the appreciation from people has moved on to the canvas

Interaction with G. Subramanian

Mr Subramanium took the audience through his journey of art. A collagist of international repute, he shared how his father’s love for theatre inspired the artist in him. His work mainly deals with the beauty of a child’s face in Indian mythological characters. He has to his credit the Sacred Book series - a part of this series is in a gallery at France while the rest has been declared by the Indian Government as a national treasure.

"I must congratulate Tata Steel for the wonderful selection of artists over the years. I am looking forward to working closely with tribal artists and learning their painting techniques" - R. B. Bhaskaran. Mr. RB Bhaskaran is the Principal at the College of Art, Kumbakonam and was an international juror for the Florence Biennale, Italy.

Participating artists

Through the years, the art-in-industry camps have proved to be very successful as they bring together artists who have forged their individual paths rather than merely following established conventions. Since last year, Art in Industry also organizes a workshop for Jamshedpur based Art students with senior artists. At the end of the camp, one gets to witness magical canvases displaying ingenuity and insight by the participating artists. Through the years the camps have become a centre for learning, giving budding tribal artists an opportunity to interact with, and observe the development and technique of contemporary eminent artists. The camps have crafted several success stories helping to put regional artists on the national scene.
