Art Exhibition Inspired by Manga Comics

Ragini Srikrishna is a student of class IX and is all set to have an exhibition inspired by Manga Comics.

Mangas, Japan’s cult comics, will find a resonance here with an art exhibit titled Girl Power!, which begins on July 4 at the Oxford Book Store in Jayanagar.

She has been practising art for three years and enjoys painting landscapes, still life and young people on oil and acrylic.

Girl Power! is an acrylic series that draws from the Japanese manga.

Through this project, Ragini aims to create art that not only empowers girls but also encourages both boys and girls to appreciate each other as team players. “Girls and boys should enjoy the same status. It is not fair that we do not enjoy the same opportunities,” she said.

This young artist is also putting up some of the paintings for sale. Half the proceeds will be donated to FAME India, a non-profit charitable trust focused on educating and training children and young adults with developmental disability, as well as those with cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy.Way to go girl!
