Raghu Dixit Awarded
Raghu Dixit has done it again. After landing himself at the top of the iTunes charts and scoring a gig on the acclaimed television show Later... with Jools Holland, the musician has won the Best Newcomer Award at the Songlines Awards that recognise the best in world music. This shouldn't come as a surprise for those who've been following Dixit's music. However, what is surprising is that this is Dixit's first award ever. He tweeted on Thursday evening, after the announcement of the awards, "After 13 years of being a musician, this is really my first ever award."
When it's in a gallery, people pay money to see it. But when it's out on the street, it could get you thrown in jail. Urban graffiti is being celebrated by Los Angeles' art lovers in the hugely popular show titled 'Art in the Streets' at the Museum of Contemporary Art. A block away, however, the same sort of scrawling has the LA police cracking down on what they call a public 'nuisance'. According to the authorities, the ongoing exhibition, that is causing a lot of public debate, is responsible for a wave of graffiti and is 'defacing public property'. Clearly, one man's art is another man's eyesore.
Weeks before Sir Winston Churchill stepped down as the British Prime Minister in 1945, he was painting a canvas in the greens of the Basque region of France. Titled Villa on the Nivelle, the work will be put on auction at Christie's, London, on May 26. Estimated between 2,00,000-3,00,000 Euros, this was reportedly the second time Churchill had picked a paintbrush since the start of World War II.
