Telangana Ellamma finds a place on canvas

Nostalgia takes on shades of blue, black and green

 

 

 

DEEP HUES: Mohammad Rustums new work, Telangana Ellamma.

Siddipet (Medak): Mohammad Rustum of Siddpet is well known to art lovers in the twin cities. His art exhibition at the ICCR Art gallery in Ravindra Bharathi portrayed `Culture Colours of Telangana,’ which included famous works like Amma and Alankaram. Now he has come up with `Telangana Ellamma’ a true presentation of a hardworking lady from rural Telangana. Describing his brainchild Rustum told The Hindu that he deliberately chose thick blue, black and green as they represent hard work and toil under the sun.

Childhood memories

 

 

Remembering the days of his childhood in Alwal village of Mirdoddi mandal Rustum said he could still hear voices calling out to people named Ellamma and Pochamma and could visualise the old houses, the dusty roads and the herdsmen. He pointed out that he wanted to bring those pure emotions to his paintings. Rustum said that he preferred linseed oil-based paints for his folk-based paintings.

Rustum who works as a drawing teacher at the local Government school feels that the Government should encourage young talent, as painting is a very expensive hobby. He expressed concern over the decision of the Government not to fill vacant drawing teacher posts. Rustum runs an Art academy in Siddipet. He also teaches handwriting in Telugu to schoolchildren.
