Says Seema Subbanna, Director, Gallery Ensign: “Sumi-E style of painting is an art form which is more than a thousand years old. It requires a lot of skill to present the object of art, in the fewest possible strokes. One cannot handle this medium without a lot of practice, as just a few strokes and the painting is complete. I find the whole process extremely fascinating; all the participating artists have been practicing this art form for a long time and with a lot of passion. It’s a pleasure to present their show at our gallery premises.”

The exhibition will be inaugurated by H.E. Mr. Hideaki Domichi, Ambassador of
