Artist Reception at the Library
Celebrating Oceanside Days of Art
April 17, 2013
The Oceanside Public Library invites you to a reception for local artist Arun Prem at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2013, during Oceanside Days of Art. Prem’s work will be on display upstairs at the Civic Center Library from April 1 – May 4, 2013. This all-ages program is free and open to the public.
Arun Prem is a native of New Delhi, India and is currently living and working in Southern California. A self-taught artist who specializes in figurative oil representations of his native India, Prem’s paintings reflect his experience with blended history, cultures, politics and religion. He paints India “as he sees it”, without stereotypes imposed by traditional Indian styles, or by popular colonial versions of the people of India. Mr. Prem will speak about artists and authors that have been influential in his work and life, his paintings and inspirations, as well his native India.
