Indra loka is a mythological term which is described as the ‘Heaven of the Gods’. Time has shaped the word to be synonymous with a beautiful place where you feel safe, where you are happy and comfortable – a dream world. In Bangla, it is read as Indrolok, and artists are the creators of that dream world.
Now more than ever, art is something that can help lift our spirits and improve our wellbeing. ‘Indrolok’ is a collection of artworks by some of the most renowned artists of our time, in the realm where rainbows are woven.
Edge Gallery brings to visitors this exhibition where they will find a world of styles, techniques and media –mostly homegrown, but some from abroad too. Here, contemporary masters gather to help us weave that rainbow of colors and emotion, into a place where dreams are made.
