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.
