A TASTE OF INDIAN ART

 

Internationally renowned painter and print maker Hanuman Kambli will be giving students the benefit of his expertise when he visits the University of Lincoln next week.

 

Beginning next Monday (24th February) the Indian-born artist, who is Head of Print Making at Goa College of Art, University of Bombay, will spend two weeks at the Lincoln School of Art and Design teaching foundation students.

 

Dr Kambli (47), who received a postgraduate degree in Fine Art Print Making from Visva Bharati University, West Bengal, has permanent exhibitions at over 20 international galleries including London, Germany, Japan and Portugal.

 

Dr Kambli has also held the post of ‘artist in residence’ at the Wimbledon School of Art in London and at the Western Michigan University, USA on a Fulbright Fellowship.

 

The visit has been arranged by Ron Harrison, a part-time lecturer in art and design at the school, who has taught at the University of Bombay on a number of occasions over the last decade.

 

“I have been teaching in Goa as a visiting lecturer for a number of years and have come to know Hanuman very well,” said Mr Harrison.

 

“During my last visit I asked him if he would be interested in visiting our school to teach our students and to meet other facilitators.

 

“I know the students will benefit from the experience and I hope Hanuman will gain a lot from it too.”
