The Pioneers of Bangalore is an art project to celebrate the people who lifted up Bangalore to the Silicon Valley Capital of India and quite a bit of Asia.
It features oil portrait paintings of the Technology leaders who braved against all odds to setup the Technology ecosystem of the country.
Each oil portrait is a 10ft x 6ft painting of various Technology leaders like Ashok Soota , Subroto Bagchi , Azim Premji, Narayana Murthy , Nandan Nilekani , Kiran Mazumdar Shaw and some other founders from product companies .
All the portraits strive to capture the essence of each of these leaders but not in a literal realistic interpretation.
It is intended to be a travelling exhibition at all the major Technology and product companies and then to be a permanent exhibit (somewhere in Bangalore).
All the portraits strive to capture the essence of each of these leaders but not in a literal realistic interpretation. Art is a chronicler of history and this project intends the same.
Another important aim is also to raise the awareness level of art to everyone (software engineers included) thru a topic close to their heart. People understand portraits ..whether photographs or paintings. It’s a window to the soul.
Some study portraits paintings of Ashok Soota to arrive at possible styles.
