Hyderabad: The ongoing pandemic shattered several hopes and dreams. Suffering major financial setbacks during the time, many artists locked their brushes and paints and took up mundane jobs to run their kitchen.

To bring back the colours on canvas, city-based artist, Manohar Chiluveru, started a global art project called Hope Kosmos that aims at creating a support system for the artistic community. The one-of-a-kind exhibition, which is being held at Shrishti Art Gallery, saw the participation of many celebrities, including Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Lakshmi Manchu, Shilpa Reddy and Regina Cassandra, on the inaugural day.

“When the first lockdown in India was announced, I had just come back home from Italy. Like several other artists across the globe, I too faced several issues during the pandemic. Many artists are still trying to recover from the financial setback they faced during those months. I realised that if there was a medium for artists to stay connected with the patrons, the crisis wouldn’t have been so grave. This got me thinking about a platform that can help the artists during such trying times. And thus Hope Kosmos was born,” shares Manohar.

A digital platform, Hope Kosmos, will enable the artists to display their art as well as reach out to the patrons for investments in their projects.

“We are aiming to create the world’s largest online art collection. In the next four years, Hope Kosmos will be a forum for multidisciplinary knowledge sharing, exchange of ideas and collaboration for creative people from various fields. Apart from the patrons, the artists will also be able to reach out to art festivals, fairs and other such events to display their collections,” explains Manohar.

Artists from various parts of the world are also collaborating with Manohar on this project.

A shy child in school, Manohar shares that colours have helped him create an identity for himself. And thus, as a part of this project, he invited several people from the city to come and paint with him.

“Any form of art is not just a hobby – it is therapeutic. In this fast moving world, people have forgotten to relax and just observe things. With this project, I want people to explore the artistic side of them and let it out,” he concludes.
