Three nude paintings of Hindu gods and goddesses by an upcoming artist, exhibited in the art gallery of Chitrakala Parishath, were on Tuesday removed in the wake of threat of protest over phone and the request by police.
The three paintings out of the 40 paintings of gods and goddesses exhibited in the gallery were removed in the wake of threat of protest by the public over phone and also a request from police that it might create a law and order problem, Chief Administrator Officer of Chitrakala Parishath Shridhar said.
The paintings were the works of Arvind Sainath Krishnamani, he said.
The Parishath rents out the gallery to upcoming and established artists on a regular basis to exhibit their works, Shridhar said.
