It was the launch of SATMA( South Asian Talent Management) here in the U.S and an attempt by Vchilli to give back to the community by providing a platform for the promotion of South Asian talent in the U.S. Two amazing artist’s – Fahim Ali, A self taught artist whose work ranges from historic events, Islamic calligraphy, Hindu mythology to people and whose original painting of Tipu Sultan has been acquired by the National Museum of Pakistan mesmerized the crowds with his live painting to music. It was the first time in Chicago an event of this magnitude was organized and an artist of this caliber performed live to the amazement of the crowds.He is much at ease with the wash painting technique where he works with liquid oil paints flowing like water and using his fingers to paint. Since 1991 Fahim has shown his works in Singapore, Canada, United Kingdom , Dubai, Qatar, Kenya and Tanzania.

Rashmi Sahani – an upcoming artist with a refreshing perspective on Inner peace and vitality of life displayed an array of paintings that reflected influences of “Buddha”.Born and brought up in India she was always inclined towards literary works of art and her surroundings became her early inspirations.

The live painting was auctioned to benefit the Charity – Save A Mother – whose mission is to develop health care solutions for the poor and reduce maternal mortality as a first step.Dr Shiban Ganju addressed the crowd about the great work Save A Mother is doing in Chicago and the need to volunteer and get involved in this great cause..

The highlight of the evening was also the live sculpture performance of Karim whose clean lines and fluid body movements enthralled the crowds..Dignitaries and well known members from the community, Art critic’s, artists , people from overseas made the evening a truly international affair.It was an invitation only event and had over 200 people at the event.

Two amazing artists with two opposing points of view came together for an evening reflecting the theme of the evening – Hues of Harmony. The success of this launch goes to Vandana Walia a Creative Specialist who has made a niche for herself in organizing the most Unique, opulent and creative events in Chicago

About South Asian Talent Management (SATMA)

SATMA Mission: Provide a platform for pre-selected and screened talented groups, individuals, schools, colleges, organizations or any other talent of South Asian origin, collaborating and complementing this talent pool with the varied requirements across a cross section of products, services and events enabling the promotion of South Asian arts and culture.

In the last decade the South Asian population in the U.S. has grown at a staggering rate of 69% but less than 1% of this population has been able to come to the forefront. With the growing population a need has emerged to unify this diverse and multitalented and multicultural segment under one umbrella so that more people have the opportunity to showcase their talent to the mainstream audience. SATMA is the ‘missing link’ in this chain joining the needs of the community with the demands of the changing ethnic climate providing one point of contact for end users and clients making it a ‘win win ‘ scenario for all… The links in this chain might be localized however the outreach is truly Global.
