WARRIORS OF THE BLUE
Painting & cartooning has always been Dr. Pravin’s passion which he continues to pursue as a hobby. The themes of his artwork are largely influenced by his research work in the field of fisheries and aquaculture. The collections of his paintings over the years culminated in a solo painting exhibition at Kochi, Kerala in 2013 on the theme – ‘Fishing Boats of India’. He has been a regular contributor of cartoons in the ‘Fishing Chimes’, a popular fisheries magazine of the country. The cartoons that appeared in the journal were also published as a book titled ‘Fishtoons’.
He also published COVID-19 Fishtoons in digital mode in 2020. The present theme, ‘Warriors of the Blue’ is a collection of watercolor paintings inspired by the day-to-day lives of the fishers, their culture, and traditions. Capturing glimpses of the essence and beauty of their lives and livelihood, contrasting the traditional and modern practices seen in different regions of India. This series of artwork was painted by father-daughter duo mainly during the COVID-19 lockdown period. The pandemic impacted various sectors in the world including the Fisheries and Aquaculture sector at large. This is a humble attempt to bring out the essence of the activities of the fishers in the country.
Stay healthy & safe and hope you enjoy the Exhibition. We take pleasure in inviting you and request you to kindly attend the inaugural and give a wide coverage of the event.
Dr. Pravin Puthra and Pravya Mr. Koti Prasad Alva
