ALIGARH – The student artists of Aligarh Muslim University, who have been keeping their optimism and hope during the lockdown, have created some beautiful art pieces. The university’s Department of Fine Arts has provided them a forum to display their work through ‘Sound of Silence’. It is a 25-day-long Virtual Art Exhibition in a 3D Gallery that was inaugurated on Monday.

“With the misery, chaos, crisis, uncertainty and fear of losing loved ones, there is also this unusual freshness in nature with sparkling blue sky and fresh breeze. Perhaps nature is making people understand the equilibrium between man and nature and pushing us to undo the damage we have done,” said Prof Badar Jahan, chairperson of the department and the curator of the exhibition. .

“The art fair presents the unique vignettes of artists’ experiences of the unprecedented time with a wide range of stylistic, thematic and conceptual articulation,” added Prof Jahan.

Available through KUNSTMATRIX, a German 3D Gallery, the exhibition on display has two galleries with 137 paintings, drawings and digital art pieces by undergraduate and postgraduate students of the department as well as Women’s College. These galleries can be visited on the links, ‘https://art.kunstmatrix.com/apps/artspaces/index.html?external=true&splashscreen=true&language=en&uid=23922&exhibition=1729216‘ and ‘https://art.kunstmatrix.com/apps/artspaces/index.html?external=true&splashscreen=true&language=en&uid=23922&exhibition=1738026‘.
