Three young contemporary artists, from Bengal but settled in Delhi, exhibited their recent works under one canopy. The exhibition was entitled “Wanderlust Nature” and curated by Anindya Kanti Biswas. The exhibition was a eulogy to Ramkinkar Baij celebrating his 111th birth centenary. In the delightful and bountiful nature of 21st century Post Modern India, three artists; Anindya Kanti Biswas, Dr. Rajarshi Chakrabarti and Rituparno Maity in their offset youths are celebrating an exhibition dedicated to their return to nature.
