Solo art exhibition by Sanjay Sundram (entitled Fertile Crescent) sponsored by the City of Ottawa is on from Oct 19 to Nov 21. Opening reception on Sun Oct 22 at 1pm.

Sanjay is an architect by training, finding inspiration in urban spaces. The paintings feature an almost hallucinatory look at cities, referencing specific buildings from places as far apart as New Delhi, New York and Ottawa. Large simians appear on skyscrapers built on the ruins of their forest. Cars spout golden flowers instead of smoke. Wings want to fly.
Earlier this year, a painting from this series was acquired by the City of Ottawa as part of their 2017 Direct Purchase program. The painting “You are richer than you think” is featured on the City’s invite for the public show.
