VENUE: VISUAL ARTS GALLERY, INDIA HABITAT CENTER, LODHI ROAD, NEW DELHI
Renowned artist Bhasker Singha presents his captivating solo exhibition – REALMS OF PEACE at the prestigious Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Center, Lodhi Road, New Delhi from 1 August 2023 till 5 August 2023 (11 AM to 7 PM)
The exhibition will showcase a collection of artworks that embody the artist’s profound philosophy and his unwavering pursuit of peace, love, and happiness that he has created during his decades of artistic career.
“Drawing inspiration from the ancient Sanskrit phrase ‘VASUDHA EKA KUTUMBAKAM,’ which translates to ‘the world is one family,’ Bhasker Singha embraces the belief that true wisdom transcends divisions and fosters inclusivity. His artistic journey reflects the eternal spirit of liberation from artificial boundaries, echoing the core principles found in Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism”.
“Bhasker Singha views every creation as part of a universal cycle, akin to the ever-changing shape of the wind. Painting for him is a form of meditation, providing solace and allowing him to channel his emotions into a vibrant symphony of colors, forms and figures. Through his art, he finds spiritual satisfaction, transcending worldly illusions”.
Despite using acrylic as his medium, known for its difficulty in achieving transparency, Singha skillfully applies at least 10 layers of color to his canvases. Even the first layer remains visible, resulting in an enchanting magic that resonates with viewers.
“Delving deeper into Singha’s body of work, one discovers the artist’s mastery of creating a sense of ‘air’ in his paintings. Over the course of two decades of dedicated practice, he has achieved a remarkable transparent effect that breathes life into his creations. Despite using acrylic as his medium, known for its difficulty in achieving transparency, Singha skillfully applies at least 10 layers of color to his canvases. Even the first layer remains visible, resulting in an enchanting magic that resonates with viewers. The sculptural quality observed in his works is a testament to his innate temperament as a sculptor, expertly translated onto the canvas,” the curator describes the enchanting magic of his artwork.
“Belonging to a generation of Bengal artists who initially pursued art as a part-time occupation or hobby, Singha’s artistic journey was fueled by his family’s unwavering support. His mother even sold her golden bangles to nurture his love for art. However, faced with financial constraints, Singla worked in an advertising agency for two years before realizing his true calling. He ultimately became an art teacher in a local school in Delhi, allowing him the time and space to pursue his passion while providing for his family,” says the curator.
