“Caricatures of 100 Great Tiatrists” Book Release

The quirky book of Goa’s famous cartoonist, Alexys, “Caricatures of 100 Great Tiatrists” was released at Kala Academy on 16th April 2018. The book release event began with a musical performance by 3 singers- Olavo Rodrigues, Willy Goes, and Carlos Gonsalves. Tomazinho Cardozo, chairman of the 125th Anniversary of Tiatr Celebration Committee, while speaking on the occasion said that Alexys’ caricatures give an insight into the lives of the artists.

Alexys said that the journey in doing 100 caricatures took nine months. He compared his work to a pregnant woman and dubbed it as labour of love. An eminent doctor, Sidney Pinto do Rosario said that he admired Alexys for his zest for life and said that he was one of the greatest cartoonists Goa has produced.

Later on, an exhibition of the caricatures was inaugurated.  The exhibition is open today (17th April 2018) for public viewing.
