Prominent artist Milburn Cherian, today inaugurated her first ever solo exhibition in New Delhi at the Lalit Kala Akademi. Based on the theme ‘Old World, New Palette’, the exhibition displayed Milburn’s intrinsic work that she constructs using minuscule elements to create a labyrinth of stories.
Present on the inauguration were some of the renowned artists including Jatin Das, Manu Parekh, Paresh Maity, G.R. Iranna among many others.
The exhibition was embellished with some of Milburn’s cavernous work which was showcased through 57 of her strikingly impressive paintings. One of the most inspiring artworks that are on display is Milburn’s most popular painting ‘The Healing’ which she says has a direct connect with her heart.
