A group of artists will be showcasing their paintings and sketches that highlight Mangaluru’s rich cultural legacy. Their continuous endeavor to record and preserve the cultural heritage of the city includes this exhibition.

The exhibition, which is being put on by the Art Kanara Trust and the Mangaluru chapter of the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), will highlight a number of the city’s distinctive features, including its historic buildings, temples, streets that date back hundreds of years, rivers, the sea, and other structures.

The artists have been working hard to capture the spirit of Mangaluru in their artwork since September 2022, when they started this initiative in conjunction with World River Day. Commencing on May 18 and running through May 25, the Kodialguthu Centre for Art and Culture in Kodialguthu is set to host the exhibition titled “Combing Kudla with Pens and Brushes.”

One of the organizers, artist Rajendra Kedige, informed TOI that during the exhibition, 45 drawings and sketches on the century-old legacy of Mangaluru will be displayed by five artists: Harish Kodialbail, Jeevan Salian, Santhosh Andrade, Syed Asif Ali, and Wilson Souza. He stated that senior journalist Jayanth Kodkani will be present at the opening event.

The artists started this initiative in September 2022, which happened to be World River Day, and they have been working hard to portray Mangaluru’s soul in their artwork ever since.

Five artists—Harish Kodialbail, Jeevan Salian, Santhosh Andrade, Syed Asif Ali, and Wilson Souza—will display 45 drawings and sketches on the century-old legacy of Mangaluru at the exhibition, according to artist Rajendra Kedige, one of the organizers, who spoke with TOI. He stated that Jayanth Kodkani, a senior journalist, will be present for the inaugural ceremony.

According to Kedige, they have depicted the tradition on paper using their own artistic flair. “They visited the locations and produced the majority of the artwork immediately. In the meantime, they used the photos they took from the locations to make some of the drawings and sketches from their studios.

In the upcoming phase, we intend to create a book that includes those sketches and drawings along with the history of Mangaluru’s legacy,” he continued.
