    Painting Exhibit a Hit in Bangalore, India

    An exhibition of paintings on Dravidian women is drawing hordes of visitors in India's southern central city of Bangalore. Let's find out why.

    STORY:
    In his paintings of women in the rustic environment of South India, artist Elayaraja has brought out various facets of the these women in 22 oil works on display at the Abstract Art Gallery.

    The life like paintings captured the natural beauty of the women involved in different household activities.

    Elayaraja is hailed by art lovers for his traditional and realistic style.

    [Oez Yassin, Owner, Abstract Art Gallery]:
    "He is an artist who follows the traditional style in these modern times. He is a realistic artist who does a lot of portraitures and so on."

    Visitors marveled over the beauty and attractiveness of the paintings.

    [Vani Ganapathy, Dancer]:
    "They are absolutely beautiful. He has captured the Tamilian face absolutely to the core, the Dravidian face. Especially the typical woman in the rural areas and caught them in various moods and various activities."

    The paintings were inspired by real life characters as the artist first photographed these women before depicting them on canvas.
