Actor Sivakumar’s (Surya & Karthi’s father) paintings, that he drew during 1958 – 1965, have been exhibited at Lalit Kala Academy, Greams Road, Chennai. (Google Maps location.) This exhibition will go on from Oct. 24 to Oct. 26, 2016. Time: 11 A.M. to 7 P.M. On Oct. 27, a coffee table book with the actor’s select paintings will be released at the same venue.
According to the news available on Kollywood media sites, this exhibition has been organized by Karthi and Surya as a tribute to their actor-artist father on the occasion of his 75th birthday. We all know the actor side, but many of us will be surprised to see the artist side of Mr. Sivakumar.
This exhibition contains 140 paintings, each on a 30×40 inches canvas, drawn and painted by Mr. Sivakumar himself.
Here are some photos of the excellent paintings by Mr. Sivakumar. It seems Karthi attended the opening ceremony on Oct. 24 and Surya is expected to attend the closing ceremony on Oct. 26.
I will try to visit the exhibition tomorrow and put up some pics from there on this blog.
