The Tamil students of Bergen University held an exhibition at the Bergen University Student Centre paintings by Tamil Nadu Artist Kuzhanthaivelu Pugazhenthi titled ‘The Faces of War’ Friday and Saturday, depicting the horror suffered by Eezham Tamils in its Fourth War and the heroic sacrifice and valour of Liberation Tigers, sources in Oslo said. The exhibition drew a large number of Norwegian students on the first day while the students of Bergen Tamil School viewed them on the next day.
Pugazhenthi’s paintings had been widely exhibited in various parts of Tamil Nadu and Pugazhenthi says that he continues to exhibit the paintings so as to create sympathy and support for Tamil Eezham and its suffering people, among the people of Tamil Nadu.
“We too will exhibit his paintings throughout Norway with the aim to bring out the suffering of Eezham Tamils and to lend support to Pugazhenthi in his mission through his paintings,” Ranjani Sri Balasuntharam, representative of Bergen Tamil Students, said.
The paintings had been already exhibited in Switzerland drawing large crowds.
