Solo Art show ‘The Fertile Crescent’ by Sanjay Sundram is on at Shenkman Arts (Salon A) from Oct 19 to Nov 21. The show is organised by the City of Ottawa with an opening reception on Oct 22 from 1 to 3 pm.

About the works:
Sanjay is an architect by training, and finds inspiration in urban spaces. The paintings feature an almost hallucinatory look at cities, referencing specific buildings from places as far apart as New Delhi, New York and Ottawa. Large simians appear on skyscrapers built on the ruins of their forest. Cars spout golden flowers instead of smoke. Wings want to fly.
Earlier this year, a painting from this series (entitled “You are richer than you think”) was acquired by the City of Ottawa as part of their 2017 Direct Purchase program. The painting can be seen on the City’s invitation for the public show.
