“There is more than what meets the eye”- this says it all about Contemporary Art. Literally meaning “The art of today” is a form that doesn’t adhere to uniformity. The art works mainly produced in 20th & 21st centuries poses varied approaches and outcomes. A medium used by the artists to express themselves openly. It’s a rarity to find two viewers having a single point of view about a contemporary artwork. This genre of art is a reflection of the artist, they may address a socio-political trend, religion or even their own culture. What makes this school of art interesting is, that it’s ever-evolving and diverse.
To bring art lovers closer to the beauty of abstract art, the Rooftop organized an exciting workshop and invited expert artist Varsha Panwar to conduct it.
