Lady in Red (2018)
This artwork by Sukul Arvindra Nath is titled “Lady in Red”.
Ethically the under current present in Fiji maybe along racial divide a beautiful girl of Indian origins decide to break all rules in deliberate wild abandon she is ready to marry her Fijian boyfriend and there is nothing stopping her. All in all it may be calculated risk but to this girl she is clear that their ‘Love’ is a bond of simplicity and purity.
“Tu hi reh,tu hi reh. Tere bhina ma kaise jio”
“Noqu daulomani sai iko ga, sai iko tau dua ga”
“My love it’s you, its only you”
Arvin is of Indian descent and he fusions his painting with a combination of Fijian and Indian culture creating masterpieces. His figure paintings mostly portray love and bonding between different cultures. A perfect example of Fiji. He uses rich exotic bold colors which provides to give his paintings a strong physical strength and presence.
“Culture differences should not separate us from each other, but rather culturally diverse beings a collective strength that can benefit all of mankind… Peace” said Arvin.
