By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 20 � In an attempt to showcase the different aspects of public as well as personal life of poet, lyricist and singer Dr Bhupen Hazarika through black and white, an exhibition by a group of contemporary artists will be dedicated to the music legend.

Aptly titled �Black Drizzle�, this exhibition which will begin on November 21 at the State Art Gallery here will have on display the black and white drawings of 41 artists.

Deven Dewan, the convener of Black Drizzle, informed that the exhibition will also have a work of the music legend Dr Bhupen Hazarika on display. The music maestro had also enjoyed giving expression to his creativity through drawings as well, though this skill of the living legend is not much hyped.

It needs to be mentioned here that this work of the cultural icon that was done way back in 1984 was collected by Dewan several years back.

�We are dedicating this black and white attempt to the illustrious son of the soil who was also an artist,� said Dewan, adding that an album which too is dedicated to Bhupen Hazarika will be released on the first day of the exhibition.

�I shared an intimate relation with Bhupenda when he was in Kolkata. He was a multifaceted personality and had a good conception of art,� said Dewan, remarking that the works of Bhupenda had his trademark depth.

On the other hand, artist Kishor Kumar Das said that the seven-day exhibition will provide a glimpse into the socio-political life of the State as the artists are not isolated members of the society. �Some works are subjective, but the works of many of the participants have been inspired by the upheavals in the socio-political life of the State,� said Das, mentioning that his fraternity had immense respect for Bhupen Hazarika and Black Drizzle is a confirmation of that.

Some of the participants are Benu Mishra, Debananda Ulup, Neel Pawan Baruah, Noni Borpujari, Subhakar Laskar, Manika Devi, Kamal Mahanta, Aditi Chakravarty, Minakshi Borgohain, and others.
