Akash Mishra Announced as the Nominated Artist for AURA 2024 by Retro Kolkata Magazine

In a remarkable development in the art world, Akash Mishra, a talented artist and student at the College of Visual Arts, has been honored as the Nominated Artist for the 'AURA 2024 - International Photography & Art Exhibition'. This prestigious event, organized by Retro Kolkata Magazine, is slated to be held at Nazrul Tirtha, Newtown, Kolkata, from January 13 to January 21, 2024.

The exhibition will be a two-part showcase. Initially, from January 13 to January 15, the focus will be on art, featuring a range of paintings and other visual art forms. This will be followed by a photography exhibition from January 18 to January 20, culminating in a grand felicitation ceremony on January 21.

Akash Mishra's journey to this esteemed position is both inspiring and reflective of his deep connection with nature and rural life. Raised in a village, Mishra developed a profound bond with nature, which he describes as equivalent to a mother. This intimate relationship with the natural world has become the cornerstone of his artistic expression.

In college, Mishra has honed his skills in painting, constantly exploring innovative methods to present his work. His approach is not just about the aesthetic appeal but also about maintaining the 'bhava', 'rasa', and 'guna' – the essence, flavor, and qualities – that give life to his creations.

One of Mishra's most notable works revolves around the theme of village markets. Through his paintings, he invites viewers to see these familiar scenes from a unique perspective, almost as if experiencing them anew. This approach not only showcases Mishra's artistic prowess but also highlights his ability to evoke emotion and thought through his art.

As he prepares for the 'AURA 2024' exhibition, Mishra stands as a testament to the power of art in connecting with our roots and bringing fresh perspectives to everyday life. His selection as the Nominated Artist is not just a personal achievement but a celebration of the rich cultural and natural heritage that he so vividly portrays in his work. The art and photography community eagerly anticipates what Akash Mishra will present at this international platform, promising a visual feast that intertwines nature, culture, and innovative artistry.
