Bhubaneswar : Lalit Kala Academy in collaboration with Odisha Mining Corporation (OMC) hosted an art workshop in the first week of October 2018 at Pantha Niwas, Bhubaneswar to promote the Odisha Men’s Hockey World Cup, Bhubaneswar 2018. Thirty known artists and painters from all over India attended the event spanning a period of 6 days from 1st October to 6th October.

The artists had been tasked with developing the paintings with a theme of the noble sport of hockey. The Paintings would be used within the premises of the Kalinga Stadium for beautification of the common areas, lobbies, lounges, galleries and dressing rooms, ahead of the World Cup in December.

While some artists reflected on the themes of Hockey through their creative eye, some other submissions were centered around the overall spirit, ideals and values of sportsmanship. Some paid homage to the legendary master of Indian hockey, Major Dhyanchand.

The most striking aspect of the exhibition was how some artists blended in the beauty of Odia tribal culture with the spirit of hockey as a sport to create some breathtaking masterpieces. The dynamic combination of classic, contemporary and modern art was on full display at the exhibition. .
