The Urban Yogi is a special curation that incorporates a range of mediums including drawing, painting, mixed media works and sculptural pieces to bring out the tightrope walk in our urban existence. It is around this metaphor of the yogi that the curator, Georgina Maddox weaves together artists whose works are stylistically diverse yet conversationally similar.
Speaking about the curation, Georgina Maddox says, “Urban Yogi is all about the concern of balancing the fast paced urban life with the inner spiritual self. This desire for balance is something we can all relate to. The accomplished artists chosen for this show were selected based on how well their work fit in with the theme. I am excited to be associated with Mojarto’s first curatorial venture and I feel that the platform has immense potential for growth and introducing new collectors to Indian art through its global reach.”
