Art: The Ramayana and Miniature Painting Talk
Mahaveer Swami is one of the finest traditional artists from a family of Bikaner painters. He stands out not only because of his great skills in drawing and painting but also because of his ability to recognize the difference between the truly fine and mundane. Mahaveer’s working style is strongly influenced by his studies of Mughal and Rajasthani miniatures. His paintings of ascetics and mystics are particularly striking because of his deep feelings for the spiritual and the emotional.
Join Mahaveer Swami as he discusses the ancient and contemporary representations of the Ramayana in miniature painting with Edward Wilkinson, Executive Director, Bonhams Asia, and a leading specialist in Indian, Himalayan, and Southeast Asian Art.
Exhibition of the Mewar Ramayana and Mahaveer Swamy's miniature paintings will be on view at the Bonhams Gallery - Suite 2001, One Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong.
February 17 - 19: 12pm – 5pm
February 20 - 24: 10am – 6pm
