We were born to create. 

Kids imaginative and pretend play reveals that we can use several approaches and manipulate our emotions and ideas at any given time. A combination of conscious mind and wild imagination, intuition and reason, solitude and collaboration has proven time and again that these childlike hybrid sensibilities have provided the most of what we have in today's revolutionised world. 

A subversive mind takes the risk of negative criticism, possible failure, loss of reputation and loved ones yet knows very well that its unwillingness to abide by the orthodox approach is the only path to innovation and greatness. It takes a brave heart and a divergent mind to create- to be an artist.

 

'DIVERGENT' is an exhibition of such exceptional art practitioners who know not to confine themselves with the conventional ways of art making.
