Unbelievable painting about JRD
i have searched but could not find any thread on this.
i got this one in mail. thought of sharing with all of you
if similar thread exists kindly delete or merge this one
Location: Tata Museum, Jamshedpur.
In the first pic, you can see a painting. This was a gift to JRD Tata on his Birthday by a street artist. Nobody was able to understand his art. Unfortunately, only the painting was given to JRD and the artist had promised to reveal the secret shortly . However, JRD was no more when the secret was actually revealed.
Here's the secret revealed. When you place a steel rod at the circle in the first pic you saw, you will see the image of the JRD Tata as a reflection on the steel rod as seen in the second pic below. Isn't it incredible!!
Makes Me Wonder…
What was the artist doing on the streets of India????

Can't this be done as a trace?
Take a glass cylinder of the same size as the steel pipe. Paint the image you like. Place the cylinder on a sheet of A2 paper, and then light the cylinder from inside using a tubelight, it will project the image on to the paper. Paint away along the projected image.
I am just guessing, not sure it is possible.

I think the artist kept the pipe in front of him and then make the picture by seeing it on the pipe.

Ah yes... this painting I remeber well. It is located in the Center For Excellence Archives (erstwhile Russi Modi Center for Excellence). IIRC, this paitning was gifted to JRD in the mid 90's - Tata Steel used to have a painting exhibition every year where they would invite top artists from through out the country for a week - 10 days and they would create portraits and scupltures based on the Steel and You Motif. If you have a chance to be in Jamshedpur, a visit is highly recommended - you see some great art at the archives. The sculptures are outstanding as all have bene created from Steel Scrap that Tata's provided.
