Online PR News – 17-November-2010 – – Mumbai, November 2010: Airaawat Art Gallery presents â€śEternal Sagaâ€ť --- a tribute to renowned artiste, John Fernandes, starting Friday, November 19. His devoted wife Agnela will inaugurate the exhibition, which will be held till November 22.
Jayant Patel, CEO, Airaawat Art Gallery, said, â€śAiraawat Art Gallery pays rich tributes to John Fernandes, who is considered to be one of the finest realistic painters in India. His journey as an artist, started from a small town in Belgaum, when he was brought to K.B. Kulkarniâ€™s art classes by his elder brother. John's inborn talent made him a very quick student, needing only subtle suggestions from his teacher. His grasp of line form and colour tones was something exceptional. He learnt drawing from Nature, from memory and from live models, using the medium of pencils, charcoal crayons, water colours and oils with equal ease.â€ť
Indraneel J. Tawade says, â€śJohn Fernandesâ€™ paintings are works of art that are a joy forever. He had a unique sense of beauty that pervaded his paintings and had an effortless command over every medium --- oils, water colours, pencils, crayons, etc.
A Graduate with majors in Psychology and Philosophy, he studied art (Drawing and painting) at Chitra Mandir, Belgaum for 9 years, under the guidance of eminent artist Shri K.B. Kulkarni. Fernandes has several solo and group shows to his credit.
Pencil drawings were his forte, an art which he says he had inherited from his Sir K.B. Kulkarni. Be it water-colours or oils, John's disciplined and confident handling of his subjects, leave a definite stamp, that says, â€śthis is Johnâ€ť!
