An art exhibition by French artist Jean-Luc Feugeas called ‘Désordre’ was inaugurated at Kalakriti Art Gallery on Monday evening. Several prominent faces were seen at the event, such as Municipal Commissioner Janardhan Reddy, Metropolitan Councillor for International Relations Michel Vernejoul, Advisor to State Government BV Paparao and well-known city artists.

The exhibition was inaugurated with a short introductory speech by the artist. This was followed by the signing of an agreement for artist residencies between Bordeaux Metropole (France) and the State of Telangana. 
Jean-Luc Feugeas lives and works in Bordeaux, France. It’s his second time in Hyderabad and he hopes to visit the city again to explore it better, he said. Jean has also participated in the International Street Art Festival, 2016.

“It’s an amazing experience. I got to interact with Indian artistes and now I get to exhibit my art here at Kalakriti Art Gallery,” Jean said. For him, showcasing his art and making people know more about art is important. Jean is also a mathematician and says that he is more of a researcher. His scientific thinking on entropy, order and disorder, chaos and equilibrium can be seen in his art works. The paintings on the walls of the gallery look abstract with distinct geometric lines, and are captivating.

The exhibition will be on till February 15.
