Statement

An intermittent painter in the early years, she is given herself over to the power of painting for the last few years. Using an unconventional palette, the self-taught artist has created an interesting technique of layering colours to create landscapes and still-lifes that burst with colours. A bold experimentalist, she uses strong tones with rare confidence to create works that are replete with vigour and vitality. Adrenalin courses through her canvases, as though capturing the essence of her life\'s experiences. Her restless spirit finds a reflection in her paintings...and yet is difficult to pin down - a chimera moment, perhaps a cameo that provides a seductive glimpse before closing the doors on her world where the weak and anaemic has no place. For a decade now, Anu Malhotra has been painting – often secretly, or for the admiration of a few special friends, before venturing into this: her first, full-fledged exhibition that cuts across her many interests of abstract, lyrical, landscape and figurative paintings. Her debut exhibition has been in the making for three years since she started on the series, and consists of impasto and flowing paints in a vibrant chemistry of colours. 



Biography


Anu Malhotra is one of India\'s leading filmmakers, having won over 16 national and international awards. But filmmaking is not just a profession for her but a passion with a cause to create meaningful and uplifting television content.

 

Over the past decades, she has transformed the lives and minds of people across India and the world through her insightful documentaries, trendsetting television programming and revolutionary awareness campaigns that are a tribute to India and its infinite diversity.

 

In 1994, she set up AIM Television as a boutique production house and went on to create over 600 hours of quality non-fiction television programming for premier Indian television channels (Zee TV, Sony and Doordarshan), and a range of infotainment series for reputed international channels (BBC, Discovery, Travel Channel UK, France 5 et al.)

 

A pioneer of the travel show genre on Indian television, Anu Malhotra was the mastermind behind presenter-based reality format travel shows with her multiple award-winning programmes, Namaste Indiaand Indian Holiday. She successfully formatted and showcased pioneering lifestyle programming (Khubsoorat, Jhatpat Khana, Take 5, Peoples Club, Breakfast with Zee et al) which became household names and defined a whole generation of Indian audiences.

AIM Television’s global appeal was garnered with high-quality shows such as Tribal Wisdom, Yatra - Indian Travels and Holistic Healing that were aired internationally (Discovery, Travel Channel UK, France 5, et.al.)

 

With her incisive vision, she turned her experiences into captivating commercials and promotionals for the Department of Tourism to market India’s tourism potential abroad. The first series of the Incredible India films were created by her - a slogan that was coined by her and is now the signature for the Department of Tourism’s marketing programme worldwide. Simultaneously, she penned Travels With My Camera, a column for HT City in 2003, besides writing travel articles for various magazines.

 

Anu Malhotra has consulted for BBC World Service Trust as the creative head for its India Project with the specific mission of raising awareness about HIV/AIDS in India. For this campaign, she designed and directed a hugely successful and impactful ‘Behaviour Change Communication Project,’, Haath Se Haath Milaa, a 52-episodes television series involving 50 Bollywood stars. This campaign won the UNAIDS Global Award (2007).

 

Over the past decade, she has redefined the landscape of documentary cinema with her path breaking and seminal films, The Apa Tani of Arunachal Pradesh, The Konyak of Nagaland and The Maharaja of Jodhpur. Her most recent work Shamans of the Himalayas, premiered in October 2010 at Indian Habitat Centre as the opening film of a retrospective on her documentaries. And the 4x1 hour docu-series was telecast on the Discovery Channel over July 2013.

 

Previously, in 2011, Anu Malhotra showcased a multimedia photo exhibition titled Soul Survivors at Stainless Art Gallery. Inaugurated by the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, it was later relocated to the National Museum, New Delhi. This unique exhibition showcased about 80 large-size photographs taken by her during the filming of her documentary films on the North-Eastern tribes and the Tibetan plateau. This highly commended exhibition also included three documentary films, installations and collectible artifacts designed by her, and other memorabilia in which she co-opted leading designers. It has been chosen by ICCR to be exhibited internationally. The solo, Hue-Borne: Anu Malhotra’s Debut Show is being presented by Art Alive Gallery, New Delhi
