Art Bengaluru, one of the most reputed Art Festival's in India, has been created to showcase a wide spectrum of art forms and provide a platform for artists (both Indian & International) to exhibit their works. Launched in 2010, Art Bengaluru began with a vision to promote works of art and cultivate a thriving art community in the city. Riding on the success of its previous editions, Art Bengaluru's 5th Edition seeks to recreate and celebrate the Renaissance Period - an era of intellectual and artistic revival, inspired by a renewed study of Classical literature and art - with the theme of European Art History.

Presented by The Collection at UB City in association with Sublime Galleria, the 10-day event, to be held from the 21st-30th of August, 2014, will feature a host of talented artists and leading Art Galleries from across India and the world.The event will showcase 13 top galleries including one from New York & Vietnam. It will also feature one of China's most popular artists, Liu Bolin and his work, for the first-time in India. Known as "The Invisible Man", Bolin will be exhibiting the legendary "Hiding in the City" series - photographic works that began as performance art in 2005, apart from unveiling a creation exclusively for Art Bengaluru 2014.The Collection at UB City, this year, will be transformed into a haven of European Art, giving us a glimpse of the past, by bringing alive the Renaissance period. The rich chapters of European Art History will be the inspiration for the d�cor, theme and installations within UB City, whose architecture already resonates an international theme.

Gracing the event will be Padma Shri Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, renowned Santoor Maestro, who will put up a special performance at The Collection at UB City, on Sunday, 24th Aug 2014 at 6pm.
