" I DEFINE TO HIV / AIDS IN VISUAL LANGUAGE "
|This Symbolic painting i were created for ICHAP - art workshop of HIV /AIDS|
I were busy in my masters of visual art at Rajasthan School of Art , Jaipur , in that study time period I were joined some art workshops from my art collage ,In year 2004-05 Rajasthan State AIDS control society and India Canada collaborative HIV/ AIDS project was organized a art workshop at JAIPUR SWASTHY VIBHAG BHAWAN .
I were went there with my juniors , first we were knew some information about HIV or AIDS from ICHAP team member s and then we got some art medium, for painting on HIV or AIDS subject. That art workshop was two day art workshop for us . so I did selected two canvas for a one painting on first day , after selection of canvas, I were started thinking on concept of AIDS .Kind your information in year 1995 I did participated in a competition of Aids Subject painting , that was organized by SMS hospital Jaipur , but I did not painted same concept on canvas of ICHAP .
First day I were just planed a concept of Love or on AIDS , I did draw some sketches on white paper s, step by step i got a final concept on AIDS Subject by art exercise . when I were started paint to base of canvas in that movement a worker of ICHAP team asked to me what you will paint on this canvas ? I did reply to him I don’t know what I will paint but I will not go out side to your subject boundation . My words were noticing by my juniors when I were talking to that person of ICHAP team member .
In my painting concept I were draw definition of love in a one part of that canvas by heart symbol, one heart X one heart it mean love but five heart X one heart it mean something is going wrong like AIDS or ETC .ha
In that time in real life I saw to live love and open invitation to AIDS by some persons or characters , so that characters roles were gave me idea for that painting concept. There on ICHAP canvas I did painted my art visual in two days with full of patience and I were noticed all worker and organizers were noticing my visual art sound by that art concept of AIDS .
Second day I were completed my first painting than my inner art sound gave me one more idea for a next painting so I were demanded one more canvas to Team of ICHAP and ICHAP team were gave me one more canvas for painting . I were used spare color of that art workshop , spare mean some art students were leaved color after use on painting and that color was useless for them so I did used that useless color for my second painting and I did created a one more painting on AIDS concept by image of foot print but I did created that foot print by my hand , that was part of folk art but I did used that in our contemporary art workshop .
Over all in two days I were gave visual language to Social Problem HIV / AIDS or protection action against that major problem of Society . I were happy because I could done that by myself art vision with a strong natural logic of natural life , I did show love is first and last natural action on all kind of social problems .
On last day of that art workshop , The team of ICHAP was exhibited our Art workshop work in meeting hall of JAIPUR SWASTHY VIBHAG BHAWAN , JAIPUR and they were gifted us certificates and rewards or awards . my juniors were won awards from ICHAP on AIDS subject and I got reward from ICHAP or from My art collage, because I did presented our art collage vision in that art workshop. The Team of ICHAP was noticed my visual sense when I were gave definition to HIV / AIDS Problem by visual language with critical visual concept .
