Much like a magician, conjuring up images of wonder out of seemingly empty space, Artist Vinay Hegde brought forth intricate portraits, themes and images using nothing more than a humble flashlight on a light sensitive screen, in the midst of a dark hall, during a show on glow art held at Alva’s on the 12th of January, 2014.

I watched, awe inspired as sudden beams of colored light pierced through the pitch black darkness, undulating on the canvas as the first images slowly started taking shape. And even though the golden hued, green tinged images lasted for only a precious few moments, they will remain forever etched in the minds of hundreds of fascinated viewers.

Starting off with a portrait of notable engineer and celebrated scholar, Sir Mokshagundam Vishveshwariah, the Sirsi-born artist proceeded to lavishly illustrate the ten incarnations of the Hindu deity Vishnu – all this to a backdrop of soothing classical music and thunderous applause of a moved audience.

Next, as the pious forms faded away, a Yakshagana artist – the glow of his haunting eyes intensified, like lights from a thousand suns – was breathtakingly brought to ‘life’ on the screen, as were several other images, like a car, for instance, with glowing headlamps, concluding the spectacle with a portrait of Sri. Virendra Hegde.

Vinay, who claims to have developed the art form on his own, is perhaps the only proponent of the art form in the country. His art becomes all the more impressive considering the fact that there’s no scope for error as once the light strikes the canvas, an imprint is created.

As this art form was akin to photography in many ways, I was highly impressed by his presentation.

  1. ಮಂಗಳೂರು ಪ್ರದರ್ಶನದಲ್ಲಿ ಅವಿಸ್ಮರಣೀಯವನ್ನು ದಾಖಲಿಸುವಲ್ಲಿ, ನನ್ನ ಬರಿಯ ಅಕ್ಷರಗಳ ಮಾಲೆಗೆ ಜೀವತುಂಬುವಲ್ಲಿ ಅರವಿಂದ ಕುಡ್ಲ ಸಾಕಷ್ಟು ಶ್ರಮಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ ಇಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡಿದ ಮೇಲೆ ಅವರೂ ಉದ್ಗರಿಸಬಹುದು “ಕೃಷ್ಣಂ ವಂದೇ ಜಗದ್ಗುರುಂ”
