Artists paint on Christian themes
Painters say they were inspired by leading Christian figures
Anil Devadiga, a Hindu who showed a Blessed Teresa of Kolkata, says painting is “a spiritual process and religion for an artist. It transcends the para-metered religions of the world.”
Some artists said Jesus and Blessed Teresa have inspired them the most.
“Mother Teresa is a universal symbol of love which cannot be tied to a single religion,” said Devadiga.
He said the Koran depicts Jesus as a messenger of God and his “way of peace inspired me to study his personality.”
Anil Rasquinha, chief convener of the “Art 4 Concern - Charity Art Exhibition and Auction,” said they would donate the money from the exhibition for the treatment of a burn victim and some others.
Milagres Church of Mangalore organized the program as part of its centenary celebrations.
Agnes Rebello, a Christian visitor to the February 27 exhibition, noted the “real inter-religious gathering” occurred against a backdrop of Hindu extremist groups’ attacks on churches in Karnataka.
