Art exhibition in Chennai highlights ability in disability
The charity show 'Never Say Die Art & Artists' at Sarala's Art Centre in Chennai is showcasing the talents of four talented artists who are breaking the limits imposed by physical disabilities.
There is the work of Uttam Kumar Bharadwaj who supports his family of aged parents, a teenage daughter with a brain tumour and a son with a heart condition. He is a self-taught artist.
Then there is K Narasimhalu, who has cerebral palsy, and has worked in both watercolours to embroidery. Using his toes, he uses the needle to embroider and moves around in his made-to-order mobile stool. He was abandoned as a child but always wanted to be independent.
The organizers say the exhbition aims to make the public aware of the enormous talent these artists have.
This is the eight edition of the show and so far they have raised Rs 14 lakh.
There is also the work of R Udhayakumar, whose mobility in the hands is limited due to spinal muscular atrophy.
