Ashish Balram Nagpal finds the enigma of 'Alinga'

On 3Oct 2008 at the Purple Lounge at Enigma, JW Marriot, Juhu, Ashish Balram Nagpal threw an inaugural party for the artist Gagan Vij's next exhibition at Ashish Balram Nagpal Gallery, Colaba from today. One couldn't leave praising one of the sculptures by Gagan Vij kept at the venue and the rest were shown on the audio-visual show.

Among the celebrities were actor Jackie Shroff, Manoj Bajpayee, Dino Morea, Pawan Shankar, Varun Bhadola, Sushant Singh, Kanishk Gangwal, Rajesh Shingarepure, Shruti Sharma, Kapil Sharma, singer Madhushree with husband Robi, artists Rajat Dhar, Rajendra kapse, Dharmendra Rathod, Ganga Kadakia and many pg3 celebrities like Mukteshwari, Neeraj Manchanda graced the event.

On asking about the artist Gagan Vij, Ashish Balram Nagpal says, "His work is honest and he believes in what he does."

Where Gagan who was really very happy with the response he is getting in advance for his show, "This work is very conceptual in nature and at individual level. It is stones, Alinga and guardians. All 8 editions are in bronze and each piece has a different patination/ shade, which highlights the work in different mood. I am excited to show different patinations in Mumbai as such an affect has never been exhibited before. Credit goes to the gallery for giving a free hand and believing in the concept."

Ashish always takes care that whoever leaves attending his event should carry a memento be it a pack of cards carrying pictures of the artwork of the artist -at the time of the show 'Pet Shop', or a very useful spiral scrap book with pictures -at the Shiva 'Ready for the Ramp' show. And as usual people were excited what was there for them and Ashish took care this time too.
