Flashback - A Tribute to Cinema

I got a wonderful opportunity to participate in Flashback - Tribute to Indian Cinema, conducted by Anna University and Ethiraj College - Media Science department students. They had a collection of 4000+ photographs all related to early cinema history. This was to honour 100 years of Indian cinema history. They had display of projectors, camera, editing machines etc etc as exhibits, it was wonderful to know how cinema evolved and it is now.

Chennai Weekend Artist (CWA) was invited to exhibit sketches of old movies in artistic way, we had almost 200+ entries and 80+ were selected to exhibit, including two of my sketches. It was really a exciting experience and my first display in an exhibition. Puthuyugam TV covered the whole show which happened during last week of December 2013.

Syberian Director Goran Paskaljevic inaugurated the exhibition and other Celebrities like Padmasree Kamal Hasan, Goutami, Nasser, Editor Lenin, Director Ram, Director/Actor Sasikumar, Director Cheran, Director Atlee, Kalaimamani Film news Anandhan, Art Director Mr. Trotsky Marudu and many more visited and wished the students. Happiest moment was when Padmasree Kamal Hassan was looking at my charcoal sketch of Moonram Pirai Scene.
