sabrang (a small studio in a small town) Big Dreams
sabrang is a very common name in Hindi and it means all the colours. the name in itself is quite literary and there was a very famous Hindi literature magazine in old good days of Hindi. Now its a name of an NGO.
but what I am going to write about has nothing to do with anything maintained above.
here I am talking about a very small art studio in Chandausi, Uttar Pradesh. It is run by Avlesh Kumar varshney aka 'Anni Sabrang'. He is a home grown portraitist who paints photo realistic portraits for the common people.
सबरंग चित्रालय भारत के कला परिद्रश्य का उपेक्षित नाम है , लेकिन चंदौसी का उभरता सितारा क्यूंकि वो गरीबो का चित्रकार है । लगभग चंदौसी के सभी घरो में उसके बनाये पोर्ट्रेट लगे हुए है । वह पुराने फोटो और ग्रुप फोटो से पोर्ट्रेट बना देता है । वो भी सामान्य से दामो में । उसके खुबाव ऊँचे हैं क्या वो अपने सपने पूरे कर पायेगा ?
He wants to put up an exhibition of his work and is very much interested in animation. yeah, you can say he got to know about the intricacies of animation from me. But the passion is his own. let us hope he does something really good out the this new medium. I have always tried to encourage him because we belong to same town and I loved the enthusiasm he has at this point of the moment.
here is Micheal Jackson one of his favorite people painted by him. Actually its a door in his tiny studio where he painted this celebrity.
He has met former US president Bill Clinton while he was own his visit to UP 's town Saharanpur for a charity inauguration.
this man sure got big dreams.
