National Painting Camp In My Home Town Bikaner 2017
Friends you know I am painter , I have masters in painting or after master I am continue busy in painting work as a freelancer at my home town Bikaner,
Someone are art promoter in art business community. they are art promoter but reality is something critical but it is ,so it is running on and on and on in our art field . no one can change to it because they have designed this kind of nature or culture in field of art for self benefit .
Many new comer artists and some senior artists are accepting to this culture for their art journey because they want to move and they want to meet to other artists of our nation on a one place time to time so they are following to this art culture of art businessman /women .
In month October date 1 to 3 - 2017 a art promoter cum businessman called to me for join his art cam so I saved some time for him. because it was my first art workshop plan with him in my home town Bikaner , I joined to him as a helper because he was invited near 50 artists of my nation INDIA . he wanted to create a national camp of painting In Bikaner . so I joined to him or his art camp as a artist or art adviser .
Before art camp I shared some idea’s with him and he was followed that then in Bikaner his art camp made some sound by media or by social media .
In press conference he showed his view about art and artist in front of media or myself . I felt wrong but what I could because I want to care the image of my Historical City Bikaner . he said I will invite to artists , I provide to them good food and residence plus art medium for painting but I will not give money or remuneration to any artist of my camp . it was critical condition for guest artists.
They soft heart artists were came Bikaner city , they created painting from his /her art energy for organizer or in return they could not found any remuneration , they nice artists were created painting only on food . I noticed the organizer was not created a very fine art environment for them or he was not gave the full art respect to them , but they silent nature artists were created art work and donated to that art businessman , I also donate to him my one painting . I am saying donation because his thinking process is very poor about art and artist . he said many time I love art and artist but that camp was very opposite to his words , all artists were talking to me and shared with me his /her problems . Actually that businessman had hurt to all artists heart . he said some bad words to me ,so I felt very upset in myself , I was helping to him but he was not in thanks motion , I did not charged on him I gave my help to him in free of cost but his nature was not polite for me . so I judge to his nature and his vision , he is making sound of art but in back side of art sound he is killing to art nature , sound, art environment . I felt bad because he was damaging to image of Cultural city Bikaner . he is making a wrong image of Bikaner mostly in vision of artists of my nation INDIA . by art camp format he is cheating with artists . it is wrong very wrong or shame full .
I felt very bad when he leaved to two Kolkata Artists on next date of camp . they both were waiting of his train tickets . so I gave company to them , one artist was stayed one night in Bikaner at a Donation place ( Mohta dharmshala ) , that was very critical or disrespect to artist by art cam organizer of Bikaner desert art festival 2017 .
Kind your information he was collected money collection from sponsor’s , it mean he has collected a good collection in that collection he could gave remuneration or train tickets charge to each one artists of that national camp but he did not done that . so I think its duty of sponsor’s they all ask to Bikaner desert art festival organizer , where he use their money or donation ?
This kind of art camp will damage the image of Bikaner city , kind your information in 2003 all India art and craft society New Delhi was organized a national camp , that camp was wrote a history in national camp of INDIA with name of Bikaner city . they all artists of that camp are remembering to KALA KUMBH national art camp today when he talk to me on phone or online networks . but this art camp gave a very bad experience to all artists of this camp they are telling to me when I am talking to them . they all are very critical and angry on organizer.
Over all I felt disrespect about art and artists so I sharing it here for your notice , I hope you will stop to this kind of art camp culture in your city or near your cultural environment , I commit to myself in future I will not join to his any art activity or camps , because in first time I knew he is not art promoter he is art killer . its my deep feeling about him . before that camp I was giving full respect to him but after that camp I have not respect for him in my heart , I have removed to him from my mind, heart, mobile, facebook or whatsapp too.
In end of that camp he was gave me a certificate and trophy for show to respect but actually , I did displayed to all art works , I did created a art gallery by all fine art works of that camp artists in very short time. so he did done that for show a thanks to me , because that display was made his art promoter image . it was wrong think of him . or I did as a critical artist but in my heart I felt full respect about guest artists of that camp so I did displayed by my best for exhibition display .
I noticed all artists have done good art work in that three days , they faced critical condition or they knew organizer will not pay to them their remuneration for this art energy . but they did best to best . it was great art spirit of all artists in that camp. so I am saluting to all artists of that camp I proud on them because they are committed for art in any condition like a army man . I have also this kind of nature in myself , so here I am writing this post for them or their art spirit , I sure the sponsor ‘s of that camp will notice to this post for future sponsorship .
This critical post is come out by me from that national painting camp of my city Bikaner .
I am not mentioning organizer name, because name is not important . art and art respect is important , when some one not give respect to art , then art not give to him or her any name , fame or etc , they live for very short time in field of art, its real ART NATURE OR CULTURE .Art Kick to them in very short time ..
So this post is dedicated to critics of art filed , because I want to them , they know about national painting camp of my town Bikaner 2017 …
Note :- in visuals you will see and notice to dedication of all artists of that camp , or they found zero in result after fine art works ..it is critical too critical .
