Art has been a constant source of amusement for us. But due to the pandemic the usual dulcet sounds which used to resonate the halls of art galleries, vanished creating a sense of nothingness amongst art lovers. But with the launch of Fegofact on the 5th of February, art lovers can now enjoy the same privilege again in an online mode. Read this article to know more.

Art is to describe something of the self and of the soul instead of harping at the superficially beautiful. In fact, art dwells at the vital unconscious level of the human mind. The essence of art is the vision of the inner eye, the transcription, not of the religious, but of the spiritual and the occult.

The inauguration of Fegofact, an online e-commerce portal on February 5, 2022 depicted this notion evidently throughout the show which streamed live on Facebook from 06:15 pm onwards. The recent pandemic saw exhibitions being shut down and the market for art gradually getting dried up. This brought frustration into numerous artists and art lovers. The launch of Fegofact at this juncture is indeed a timely effort and aims to provide a platform for all art lovers.

The event, with participants from India and abroad was ably manoeuvred by Nilanjana Ghosh. She took the viewers through an enlightened tour which began with the lighting of lamp by Mr. and Mrs. Dipak Ghosh followed by a foreword where Mr. Ghosh mentioned the cause for this initiative. A joint rendition of vandana by Basudhara Roy Munshi and illustrated painting by Mr. Tirthankar Biswas marked a colourful beginning of the evening.

The ceremony was adorned by the gracious presence and words of eminent artist, scholar, journalist, critic Dr. Navina Jafa, Ms Narayani Ganesh, Ms Neena Gulati and Mr Biswajit Jha brought out the essence of art in their own way. They spoke on the relation between art and spirituality, how nature plays an important role in the field of art, how upcoming artists need to share thoughts or exchange ideas, take advices and welcome criticisms to build on the rich traditions of their artistic forebears.
