Chitra Santhe fair 2024: Art, crowd, and colours paint the bustling canvas of Kumarakrupa road

As it has been the case for many years now, the entire stretch of Kumarakrupa Road was shut off for traffic, as Bengalureans thronged the now famous “Chitra Santhe”, the city’s annual art fair, in droves. Like every year, the 21st edition was held on the first Sunday of January. Between 6 am and 9 pm, Bengaluru Traffic Police restricted vehicular movement on Kumarakrupa Road to facilitate movement of the crowd. On the official website of Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath, the organiser of the event, it was roughly estimated that the one-day fair usually sees nearly five lakh people.

Started in 2002 to propagate the concept of ‘art for all,’ in no time the fair grew to be the giant it is today, something both the up-and-coming artists as well as art lovers look forward to. Even during the pandemic, the tradition continued with a virtual Santhe. Artist Sanjay Lavakere, who has made Bengaluru his home for 16 years now and is participating in the fair for a second time, said he was lucky to get a slot this time. “I have been trying to get a slot for the last five years, and managed to get one a couple of years ago, but was not lucky the last two years,” Lavakere told PTI.

When Eric Suwall and Robert Thomas began purchasing contemporary artwork several years ago, they didn’t anticipate accumulating a collection that would catch the eye of the art world. The Minot art enthusiasts simply sought out paintings that spoke to them personally, and in the process, they have been on the cutting edge in identifying emerging artists and developing a collection rarely found in the rural heartland.

The first gallery show featuring selections from the Thomas-Suwall collection, called “Full Disclosure,” is on display through Sept. 7 at the Plains Art Museum, Fargo. The show that opened April 20 features 55 paintings and sculptures from their 150-piece contemporary art collection.
