Sharing his fascination for Banaras as a subject for his paintings, Manu Parekh, the artist says, "I first went to Banaras struggling with artistic crisis and traveled in the Ganges by boat. I observed life of this ancient city at a various times of the day and with various perspectives."
"Later I climbed the ghats and saw the temples and people conducting private rituals in common spaces. And that's how flowers, festivals, faces and rituals all became basis of this exhibition." he says.
