Spreading peace through painting!
The world thinks about instilling peace among the nations and their people. But how does a young mind think about it?
The exhibition was held at Durbar Hall, Raj Bhavan on September 22, a day after World Peace Day and was inaugurated by the Governor of Tamil Nadu, Mr. Surjit Singh Barnala.
The theme of the exhibition was ‘194 Countries Follow the Path of Peace’. Varuna painted 194 pictures representing 194 countries of the world.
She did these paintings using different mediums such as acrylic and watercolours and each painting took her about 10 minutes. Varuna also did a live painting of an abstract Ganesha holding doves, on that day! The exhibition also featured sand, pebbles and photo art by the artist apart from paintings.
Another of her recent achievements is an ‘International Peace and Co-operation Award’ from Spain. She received this award in recognition of her winning the first prize for drawing on the topic ‘For a Planet Without Gender Violence’.
