Airport Art: Terminal 2 Bengaluru
Terminal 2 of Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru opened its gates to travellers in March 2023. The Wise Owl Team happened to visit it and was struck by the beautiful artwork on display featuring street scenes of old Bangalore, puppets, bidri work and works of established Indian artists like Paramjit Singh.
Puppets on a Chain
Artist Anupama Hoskere's installation, Strings of Life, is displayed at the terminal. She says, “I translated Madanika sculptures, found in temples of Karnataka, into puppetry for Terminal 2. It showcases the cultural aspect of Karnataka but also fits the theme of Navarasa perfecly. It took me about two years to complete the project and I’m very excited for it to be displayed at the airport!”
Artwork by Paramjit Singh (India)
Paramjit Singh was born in 1935 in Amritsar, Punjab. After finishing his initial education at Khalsa College in Amritsar, he joined School of Art, Delhi Polytechnic, Delhi. He was founding member of the group The Unknown, a group of young artists in Delhi in 1960. Singh also taught Fine arts for three decades as Professor and then Head of the art department at Jamia Millia University, Delhi. The Seventh Walk, a film, is based on the art of Paramjit Singh & was presented at Film festivals in Toronto, San Francisco, Rome & New York.
