Talking about the exhibition, artist Mouni Mukta Chakravarty said, ‘The day I have started my fine arts degree, since then I was dreaming about a solo exhibition. Eventually, the dream comes true. But I never thought that my paintings would be exhibited in a multicultural city like London. I am very excited and overwhelmed for the responses and comments from the visitors form diverse background.”

The artist also explained the story behind the title of the exhibition. As per her explanation, the word Tribeni comes from the ancient South Asian language Sanskrit, and means junction of three rivers. Tribeni is used to refer to the confluence between rivers as a metaphor for human interaction through fine art. Interestingly in Latin, English and in Sanskrit the prefix ‘tri’ means ‘3’. Three is the magic number with this Exhibition. Mukta Chakravarty’s paintings at the exhibition are painted in three paint mediums- watercolour, acrylic and oil and painted on three different surfaces- hand-made paper, wood and canvas. Fine art has endless possibilities for visual interpretations of ideas across many media and subject matters and can forge multiple points of connection.

As a part of the exhibition Tribeni, Mukto arts CIC executed an innovative creative idea called ‘the live blend of music and art’.
