Chid­ambaram also had an entourage of finance and tax experts who came along with him for this important discussion.
With such a meeting of minds, they fo­cused on the great potential they can bring about for each other’s welfare. Fully aware of the unlimited potential, they decided on working together to maximize it through the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement, or CEPA.

Congratulations on organizing such a successful exhibition. What is the theme of this exhibition?

This exhibition is organized under the theme of “healing”. This is my eighth solo exhibition and is receiving very good response from visitors and art critics. In this exhibition paints used are fancifully and also meditatively in various color ex¬pressions. The restrained color esthetics used in the displayed paintings should help people to relieve their stress and in¬still vibrant energy for life.

Do you have any professional training in paintings or did painting come to you naturally? What led you to adopt painting as a profession?

I studied modern art for my Masters at Hong-Ik University. When I was child, I used to enjoy painting so much. I have kept going with it since my childhood. So painting comes very naturally to me, even though I had formal training and education for it. I am naturally a painter and I would not have chosen any other path for my life.
