Random musings of a wandering soul

>Riot of Colors

>On the last Sunday of January, for the past 8 years, Kumara Kripa Road in Bangalore says no to vehicles and transforms into a riot of colors. Artists from all over the country come together for the Karnataka Chitra Sante. Paintings in all hues, artists of all ages line the road and it is indeed a feast for the eyes and senses as you walk down in the shade of the huge trees on both sides.

Here are a few glimpses from this year’s fest….

Beautiful Budhaas…..

Proudly displaying her art….

It is so life like, you have tear your eyes away to move on….


There were more than three artistes with similar paintings….

Lovely, isn’t it?

Saw this awesome one last year too…

What I liked best this year was these portraits by Vipin Raphael. Look at the eyes of that girl, it is so full of life that it is almost impossible to believe it is a pencil sketch.

The artist is from Kochi πŸ™‚
