Manohar Chiluveru is on a 36-day fundraiser. The venture goals to create 100 works, even when it means portray for 24 hours at a stretch
Hyderabad-based artist Manohar Chiluveru, identified for his work, sculptures and interactive public artwork installations, has launched into a venture titled Art Yagnam.
The 36-day venture started on September 30, and Manohar might be making a financial institution of greater than 100 artworks (which might be made out there on artyagnam.com). He equates it to a kickstarter marketing campaign to lift funds for a digital exhibition and different collaborative initiatives to assist effective artwork practitioners.
“Yagnam refers to prayer and art is my way of doing it,” says Manohar, who has been portray at Marri Channa Reddy Human Resource Development Institute of Telangana in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad. At the tip of the venture, the artwork financial institution could have work, sculptures and digital artwork.
A number of actions will come up via the month to interact artwork patrons on-line and offline.
Later this week, Manohar plans to color for 24 hours at a stretch: “An artist has the freedom to work at his pace in a studio; you can pause and correct if needed. Painting is a meditative process and when you do it at a stretch, you are guided by your intuition and spontaneity, without preconceived thoughts. I will be working on both figurative and abstract paintings in those 24 hours,” he says.
Manohar was in Milan, Italy, in February 2020 for his journey artwork venture, Odyssey. He returned to India in March earlier than the journey restrictions got here into impact. He noticed how the pandemic introduced the world to its knees, forcing everybody to halt and reassess their priorities.

Like a number of others in his fraternity, Manohar responded to the lockdown by engaged on a sequence. He considered Art Yagnam as a meditative, artistic course of via which he can metaphorically stand in solidarity with COVID-19 frontline employees; increase funds for NGOs and assist different effective artwork practitioners hit by the pandemic.
The record of beneficiaries hasn’t been finalised: “I am in talks with organisations. I wanted to begin the art project so that a bank of paintings can be created. Even if I want to help curate a virtual exhibition to help other artists, I need initial capital. The best way to raise funds is by creating new artworks and selling them,” he explains.
With the funds he raises via Art Yagnam, Manohar plans to organise a world digital exhibition that includes the work of effective artwork practitioners, musicians, dancers and people within the literary area. “We will be finalising a website outlining the details of this exhibition soon,” says Manohar.
Art Yagnam may also help publication of a e book, Earth Reboots, by Netherlands-based Kriya Art Foundation.
The e book will doc why artwork and artistic expressions matter throughout a pandemic, and can contain contributions from 360 artists and writers.
