India’s leading Digital Media career catalyst, Creative Multimedia Group, acclaimed for its job-oriented Animation, VFX, Web and Graphic Design training, conducted the 2019 edition of its immensely popular annual art show at Ravindra Bharati-Hyderabad on January 21, 2019.
New batch Animation students of Creative Multimedia College of Fine Arts (CMCFA) – Dilsukhnagar, Hyderabad conducted the art show titled ‘THE WALT DISNEY RETROSPECTIVE’ as a befitting tribute to, and in fond remembrance of Walt Disney – the legendary entrepreneur and pioneer of Animation on the occasion of his 117th birth anniversary. Mr. Alan Phillips, President of VanArts – Vancouver, Canada graced the event as the Chief Guest and had many words of praise for CMCFA students.
The art show featuring 114 true-to-life illustrations showcased the artistic depth and creativity of students who created stunning artworks by experimenting with a range of interesting mediums including coffee on paper, graphite dust on ivory sheet, nails and wool on wood, pencil on corrugated board, etching on mirror, colour engraving on foil, plaster of Paris on cardboard, mixed media on glass and paper and glitter on paper and paper collage.
Students also used mixed media and such conventional mediums as soft pastel on paper, poster colour on paper, watercolour on paper, colour pencil on ivory sheet, charcoal pencil on paper, oil on canvas, acrylic on paper, crayons on mount board, and sketch pen on paper to craft true-to-life illustrations and artworks of Walt Disney.
Addressing the press on the occasion, the Chief Guest Mr. Alan said: “It’s inspiring to see students come up with such brilliant works of art by exploring a variety of creative mediums. This reflects their passion for the craft. It gives me great joy to note that these budding animation artists of Creative Multimedia have captured the essence of Walt Disney through these wonderful exhibits.
Disney was a positive person who was optimistic about life and had a can-do attitude, which is why he was such a phenomenal success. He took the studio from cartoons films to TV, cinema and theme parks, creating a gigantic ‘media and entertainment conglomerate’. This was possible because of his positive attitude. Disney Studios had an inspiring work culture characterised by ‘Plussing’, which motivated the team to DO BETTER AND DO MORE. It’s a great message for students to apply ‘Plussing’ to their careers as well. All the students must be very proud of their work and I wish them the best of luck. I’ve seen very few academies like Creative Multimedia which are so passionate about animation training and I thank the CEO, Mr. Rajasekhar Buggaveeti for inviting me to inaugurate this truly exceptional Art Show.”
