Bollywood Cinema Paintings // The Sultan Gallery

May 2, 2009


The Sultan Gallery and & Tatla Gallery (Dubai) present: Bollywood Cinema Paintings, Indian film art from the 1950’s to 1980, Tuesday 5 May 2009 6pm-9pm

Tatla Gallery’s collection of vintage Bollywood Cinema Paintings forms a rare and comprehensive retrospective, featuring Bollywood icons and award-winning films spanning over 25 years of the film industry’s history. The series embodies the quirky and colorful style of India’s cinema culture – a growing fascination in the West and a deep cultural tradition in the East.

The pieces that comprise the Bollywood Cinema Painings collection were each originally commissioned for the release of a Bollywood movie and exhibited at the cinema featuring the film. In each case, local artisans used a combination of photo collage and hand painting to create dynamic and colorful interpretations of scenes from the given film.

The show will run from 5 May- 14 May 2009
