The pieces included here were part of a recently-concluded exhibition in Delhi, entitled Tales of Art, which sought to capture its audience’s imagination and engage them in a broader dialogue, through international contemporary art from the Great Banyan Art Collection.

Narrative art is art that tells a story. It has the ability to evoke emotions and capture universal truths and aspirations of today and those of the past. The paintings showcased here look into the fascinating form of storytelling in contemporary art.

​The exhibits included around 40 artworks from 15 countries across the world. To illustrate the diversity of narrative art, the exhibition draws upon an eclectic mix of emerging contemporary artists like South Korea’s Sung Ha Ahn, Malaysia’s Ahmad Zakii Anwar, Lithuania’s Gabriele Sermuksnyte, the United Kingdom’s Alex Rennie, Poland’s Agata Zychlinska, China’s Kan Sun, Xiaodong Cui, WeixinGuo and Hongru Yao and others. As  a  whole, shows like Tales  of  Art suggest that  the  ancient  art  of  telling  stories  in images  remains  a  vital  tradition  today, attracting numerous artists to the narrative form.
