Creative Disruptionists, an exhibition of fine art and sculpture by Indian Modern and Contemporary artists, has been held in our capital recently attracting almost every art enthusiasts to ornate themselves with rich artistic heritage.

Disruption is the buzz word of our times. A potent, positive force that is breaking conventions, catalyzing change and accelerating movement into the future. Creative Disruption by Art Aesthete is a birthing process of ideas. Ideas, that is undeniably bold, innovative and new.

Likewise, the spark of Creative Disruption also ignited the art world and changed the face of Indian art forever.  The exhibition brings to the ITC Maurya, the finest artists of India, in particular, 'bringing home' the legendary pioneering progressive - Krishen Khanna, whose iconic work - 'The Great Procession', adorns the dome ceiling of the ITC Maurya lobby.  

Speaking on his mural, artist Krishen Khanna said, "Works of art are never engineered. They happen by 'divine' grace. Ajit (the then Chairman of ITC Ltd.) was the most wonderful man. He never interfered in what I was doing. He allowed me to be and so the painting self-breathed this development. It took nearly five years and so much went into it."

Sujata Bajaj, an exhibitor and an Indo-French who has recently been hosted by the French Ambassador, says that her inspiration has been different and she has never felt the gender parity in her work field. Her spirit is truly refelected in her artworks.

The exhibition has displayed works of outstanding artists from the Bombay Progressive Group like S.H. Raza, M.F. Husain, F.N. Souza, Ram Kumar - who with their distinct styles, completely disrupted the old order and evolved a new, dynamic, modern idiom that formed the back bone of Modern Indian Art along with the next generation of Modern Artists like Thota Vaikuntam, Manu Parekh, Akbar Padamsee, Sakti Burman, Lalu Prasad Shaw, Manjit Bawa, K.G. Subramanyan, K.M. Adimoolam, Himmat Shah and Jogen Chowdhury.

Taking the story forward, Creative Disruption also signifies motion-a journey towards a completely new place, encompassing an evolution in style and substance.  Art Aesthete also presents cutting edge art and sharp, new, upcoming artists… going further, striving higher! Sharing this platform are the new challengers-Contemporary artists and new age sculptors, both established and upcoming, with the likes of Subodh Gupta, Jagannath Panda, GR Iranna, Ompal Sansanwal, Sudhanshu Sutar, Kishor Shinde, Arunkumar H G, Sujata Bajaj, Baiju Parthan, Dileep Sharma and Dhananjay Singh.
