From the moment I stumbled upon the press release for this exhibition, I knew i had to see it. Having said that, I almost missed it and caught the last day of the exhibition on the 15th of August. The colourful painting by Francisco Vidal, 'If I'm free, it's because I'm always running' was such a colourful lush painting, I had to take a piece of it with me, if only on my camera and of course with the consent to the gallery assistants. There were other interesting highlights like the 'Wearable Paintings' by Rita GT and the 'Name Dropping' black and white posters covering the walls of the gallery. Here are some of the pictures...

One of the highlights of my recent visit to the British Museum was the discovery of an exhibition called 'shifting patterns'. Seeing clothings made from textured tree barks, bursting with bold beautiful colors,was a delight. Even the earth toned colours were equally amazing.
It was an insightful story of the aboriginal culture, one of the oldest continuing cultures of the world. Seeing the beautiful paintings, hand woven baskets and the level of craftmanship involved in making these objects made me appreciate this indigenous art alot more. Unfortunately, no pictures was allowed during the exhibition, so I couldn't take any pictures.
