[India], Nov 9 (Business Wire-India): The third edition of 'Art by The Sea' is hosting an event where 15 prominent artists will paint against an enchanting sunset during a three-day live art festival at Carter Road Promenade from November 9 to 11, from 5 pm to 8 pm each day.

A one of its kind live painting exhibition that brings together eminent artists to paint whilst the sun sets has a theme dedication to 'Childlike innocence.'

This three-day art weekend will witness participation by artists such as Vipta Kapadia, Prof Madhukar Munde, Satish Wavare, Gautam Mukherjee, Rajendra Patil (Para), Gajanan Kabade, H R Das, Swati Sabale, Gopal Pardeshi, Madan Pawar, Dr. Minal Rajurkar, Dhyan Passika, Shailesh Patne, Varun Kapoor, and Tai Borate. From landscapes with broad gestural strokes that educe feminine energy to cello tape on sun board to create abstract artworks, each artist will display his/her unique art and paint style to create their own distinctive rendition of 'Childlike innocence' as their dedication to Children's Day.

"We wanted to honour Children's Day in a way that would bring together the Bandra community and celebrate the child within (themselves). Art is the most universal language that can be understood by adults and kids alike, and Art by The Sea is our endeavour to keep our suburb's creative streak alive. The master curation is worthy of mention as we have brought together the best artistic minds this city has to offer - an amalgamation of which this city has never seen before and one that will transport you to an era yearned and envied," said Director of Le Sutra Hospitality, Rahul Bajaj.

'Art by The Sea' will also see over 300 kids channeling their inner Picasso as they paint live masterpieces across Friday and Saturday, and compete to create Bandra's own 'Carter Road Mascot' for the year 2018-19 under the guided supervision of senior artists. Children attending the workshop-cum-competition can enter for free and create their own inspired version of what the 'Carter Road Mascot' could be in 2 days. The final announcement will take place on November 11 (Sunday) at Out of the Blue during a special curated brunch to showcase all art created during these days. The winner will be awarded a special scholarship at Anupam Kher's Actor Prepares- the school for actors -- and all participating kids would be given a 20 per cent discount voucher for the school's speech and drama class.

As the festival concludes on Sunday, the finished artworks will be exhibited at the promenade from 5 pm to 8.30 pm for all public and art lovers to see and purchase thereafter. (Business Wire-India)
