“As a young mother who is also an Artist it was very natural for me to place a paint brush in Tara’s hands rather than an Ipad, we started painting together, experimenting with colors, shapes and creating artworks out of chaos. When w2w posted about the event, I sent across a painting that was done by Tara and myself; I was thrilled that they wanted to exhibit the Artwork and said that art is not defined by age; it goes to show that this exhibition is “Lit says Kim Oberoi (Tara’s mom)    

The concept for “Get Lit” is inspired by “Millennials” a generation who are defined by technology and often labeled as lazy and unfocused. This show aims to break those stereotypes and shed light on their creative & enterprising side, by offering a platform for them to voice their opinions through art. The artworks reflect the millennial ability to constantly recreate, innovate and frequently push boundaries of “norm”. “Get Lit” celebrates the misfits, the Globetrotters, the explorers, the creators, the eco-warriors and the change makers of the community. The show is open to the public, starting on 20th till 28th of June at Gallery 76 in Dubai International Art Centre.
