Canvas on a Fence

The film centers on the relationship between six artists Saudagar Abdul Gani, Rajesh Karpe, Swaroop Kaintura, Dharampal, Hanif Mohammed Qureshi and Ganraj Choudhary and the street outside Jehangir Art Gallery. These artists have different personalities, ages, and temperaments. The film tries to capture the relationship among themselves and their collective idea of art and street. Though the film looks at them as a group, it also tries to capture their pieces of individual personalities and attempts to weave them into one fabric. The film uses an observational style to structure the narrative. It includes informal interviews with the artists present on the street. The interviews and observations combine together to form a narrative structure that portrays the artists’ everyday lives, their challenges and their personal ideas about their art and space.
