New Delhi: An art exhibition inspired by the fairy tale characters Cinderella and Snow White, and the Indian god, Ganesha, will be on display here June 28-30.

Artist Seema Chaudhary`s Chromophore series showcases love, longing, patient waiting and happiness.

"I have been inspired by the fairy tales Cinderella and Snow White. These stories are part of every girl`s fantasy, and through the paintings, I express childlike and innocent feelings in a simple manner," Chaudhary told IANS.

Using multiple layers and rich textures in acrylic and oil pastels, Chaudhary has essayed the expression in the eyes of a woman waiting for her lover to return to her.

Nitin Chaudhary`s inspiration is Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed deity, in various forms. Using vibrant colours in the background, and geometric and self-textured patterns in black and white, Nitin has tried to create balance between forms, lines and colours.

The two-day exhibition has been mounted at the Open Palm Court, India Habitat Centre.
