Ojas Art's "Divine Deities by Raja Ravi Varma"
The Divine Deities by Raja Ravi Varma
Oleographs circa Early 1900s
The popular images of goddesses Lakshmi and Saraswati that most of us have grown up with were created by Raja Ravi Verma (1848-1906). What he also did was take art beyond the boundaries of palaces in the early 19th century to the drawing rooms and puja rooms of homes through his oleographs. An oleograph is a print made with oil paint, and is made to look like an oil painting. Verma popularized this technique through his printing press in Mumbai (then Bombay), which he set up in 1892 to produce high-quality prints of his paintings. In the early 20th century, some oleographs made their way to Burma, where they were further embellished with embroidery and zardosi.

Kamayani and Saloni presented an exhibition of very exclusive traditional Pichwaees from the Nathdwara Tradition.

RKM and Raghu Rai both are by Ojas Art
India Images : Delhi that was… by Raghu Rai in Extended Edition
Nov 4, 2013 to Jan 6, 2013

‘Extended Edition’ will give a chance to art collectors to not just glimpse but also buy some of the most important works by Raghu Rai. An entire solo exhibition in an extended edition of 51 images each is a big first in the evolving field of Indian photography. Simply put, it will allow the collection process to be more democratic while also enriching collectors with the best images, which they could not have purchased otherwise.

With an enriching career spanning more than four decades, Rai’s images have been especially handpicked to suit the artistic palate of the Indian Art Connoisseur.

With as many as 40 images, including Rai’s trademark black & white, and coloured ones, the images on display at the exhibition will be spanning various subjects. So, from breathtaking stills capturing the grain of both traditional and contemporary India, there will be city-specific stills on display too; images through which Rai captured the rich tapestry, the very DNA, which defines Delhi.

Roti, Kapda, Makaan (Food, Cloth and Shelter)

Anubhav Nath, Curatorial Director of Ojas Art announces the opening of its permanent space at 1AQ (on the Qutab Minar Roundabout) with its inaugural show Roti, Kapda aur Makaan.

The show aims to explore how artists envision these very basic desires and portray it in their works. Each constituting entity of this phrase has become a new subject of discourse in our times. With the changing values of life and physical contexts of existence, these entities play an inclusive role than definitively exclusive roles as seen during the pre-global times. Today, Food, Clothing and Shelter have become contesting factors as well as pointers of socio-cultural and politic-economic existence of human beings. The current Indian socio-political situation is in a major evolutionary stage, considering the rapid urbanization and globalization. Hence, it’s important to have the artists’ point of view on the same. The selection of artists from different cross-sections of the artistic community makes the show even more interesting.

The participating artists are: Arunkumar HG, Balaji Ponna, Chandan Ahuja, Deepak John Mathew, Garima Jayadevan, Harshada Sonak, Hindol Brahmbhatt, Jinson Joseph, Kavita Singh Kale, Lee Joe + Renee Jose, Manish Sharma, Manisha Jha, Raja Ravi Varma, Ram Rahman, Rameshwar Broota, Sachin G Sebastian, Sharmila Samant, Shiv Verma, TV Santhosh, Vicky Roy, Vivek Vilasini, Zachary Becker and Zarina Hashmi.
