The Architectural Invocation Project 04
What is the role of art in architecture and pedagogy?
Born in a small village in Thrissur Kerala Murali Cheeroth is a visual artist by profession and an educationist by passion and holds a BFA and MFA from Shantinikethan, West Bengal. He has exhibited in over 100 significant shows across the globe and has taught at Premier Architecture and Design Institutes of the country like CEPT, Ahmedabad and National Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore and Chennai.
The architecture of megacities as a construction of interwoven lines is a central topic in the colourful paintings of Murali Cheeroth. His paintings show influences of both his immediate environment and city life, they are focused on his interest in the physical and psychological aspects of everyday life and spiritual and emotional aspects of humanity.
The Architectural Invocation Project, by SEED, is essentially a campaign of hope towards a more meaningful future for architecture and design. It attempts to articulate critical questions concerning the academics and practice of Architecture through significant practitioners in the country. The extremely short duration of the video bite makes it both challenging and absorbing, thereby presenting itself as small packets of wisdom. As a new school, seed will attempt to assimilate these into an organic academic spirit which is beneficial for the students, parents and the peers.
