Kathaa- Stories from India on Hong Kong Walls by Anil Vangad, Apindra Swain, Venkat Shyam and Ranjeet Jha.

Posted on

What a beautiful start to this year with Kathaa- Anil Vangad, Apindra Swain, Venkat Shyam and Ranjeet Jha - thank you for coming to Hong Kong and telling your stories on the walls of this city in this beautiful collaboration between Memeraki and HKWalls.


We have been truly amazed at the power of art in bringing together so many people - the number of people who have literally left everything they were doing during this week to be able to paint Indian Art wall murals with our artists was staggering and the biggest testimony to that was the absolutely stunning Madhubani rendition of Hong Kong skyline that has been painted at Bharat Bhawan (official residence of Indian Consul-General) that was impossible to achieve for one artist in 6 days but together so many local Indian Artists and volunteers contributed and worked together with our Madhubani artist Ranjeet Jha to make this a reality.

Here's where you can see all the walls

1.Bharat Bhawan, 22 Blacks Link, Link Estate , Deep Water Bay Road. This wall has been painted by Ranjeet Jha (Madhubani Artist) and a number of volunteers some of whom are local artists in Hong Kong (Shweta Rastogi, Dagli Rajul Mehta, Riddhi Kothari Mehta, Dolly Sheth Shah, Rajshree Khairnar, Seemaa Hiranandani, Garima jain, Mayura, Shraddha Jain, Aditi Parikh, Prajakta Nayak, Niyati Kapadia, Rini, Sharmila, Bhagya, Neha, Harsha, Devanshi, Deepti, Chhavi, Amruta, Lakshmi, Paru, Ayesha, Rashmi and many others)

A big thank you to our amazing Consul-General of India Priyanka Chauhan for supporting this event and for offering this wall for the madhubani mural and then selecting an artwork like the Hong Kong skyline which lent itself well for so many people to work together and to the entire team of the Consulate General of India. And to Mrs. Shroff and Ranoo Wasan for believing in us and helping make this a reality with their generous support. And to all of our supporting partners - Mayfare Group, Gaylord, Gunpowder, InHarmony Arts and Culture, Spic Macay and India by the Bay.

Until next year Hong Kong when you will see #Kathaahk again!

    I am really impressed with you for the selecting of new and unique topic of Stories from India on Hong Kong Walls and also well written article on it. I truly delighted to see the artworks that you have shared Madhubani Paintings in the article. However, you have missed the most important point, You won’t be able to find a minutest empty space in the Madhubani paintings. If there was any gap left, artists used to fill the void by depicting dazzling flowers, birds, geometric patterns and animals. Its impossible to achieve like Madhubani but you guys are made it, So big Thanks for Kathaa team for your great work in Hong Kong walls. In this page especially, I like Venkat Shyam’s Gunpowder work, His work is amazing, I would suggest you for Contact to know more about me IndianArtZone . I have high-quality paintings and have painted meticulously by me. Again Thanks for sharing this wondeful blog,.Keep posting!!.
