Watercolour Exhibition at the Nehru Centre, London, Opened by Michael Wood

Last week handsome television historian Michael Wood opened an amazing exhibition of watercolour paintings at the Nehru Centre in London.

Renowned artist Dr. A. Murugesan's exhibition called 'Magical Lands: Magical Landscapes' has indeed captured in art the magical landscapes of Holland, Zambia, Ukraine, India, the USA, Cyprus and Great Britain.

The artist has previously been shown in Lusaka, Zambia, and Kiev, in the Ukraine. Like many high achieving Indians, he is multi-skilled and also holds a senior Indian government post. (Cf Amit Chaudhuri, award-winning writer/ skilled musician.) Married to an Indian diplomat, Dr Murugesan accompanies his wife on foreign postings while following his artistic profession at the same time. So he's producing art-essays of the countries of assignment. That's interesting, and romantic!

Michael Wood is a fan of Dr Murugesan as well as a friend and H.E. Mr Shiv Shankar Mukherjee, the Indian High Commisiioner, was present at the opening.

Londoners have just a few more days to catch the show in Mayfair. Find out more about the understated and talented Dr Murugesan at his site, I am sure he will have a lot more art to show us in the years to come.
