When I was in Banaras for study on Banaras Ghat & history behind, while roaming I have gone through multiple kind of Sadhus on Banaras ghat & surroundings. Colorful attire, different lifestyle & uniqueness of each Sadhu inspired me to continue my Banaras ghat series to Banaras Sadhu paintings.
Sadhu is a Hindu ascetic, who has let go of all attachments to society in pursuit of “Moksha” or total liberation from ignorance & desires. These ascetics occupy a peculiar position in Indian society.
They live a monastic life, dressing in shades of orange, red and saffron, maintaining hair in Jatas or dreadlocks etc. They decorate themselves with multiple vibrant colors in their daily routine through clothes, flowers, places & it made me attracted to start new subject.
Sadhus seems exceptional than common man due to their long meditation & sadhanas, which creates Aura around their face & one can see and feel it for a moment. Keeping in mind the Aura of Sadhus, I have started creating my own textural quality in vibrant colors as a new creation.
In my earlier Banaras ghat series paintings, ghat was the heart of painting & Sadhus were diffused. Now I have started exploring Sadhus with their colorful lifestyle in abstraction forms, different textural quality, vibrant colors& foggy effect on beard.
While deep diving on ancient Indian culture & holy ghat study, Sadhus took me on different platform of creation.
My art seamlessly synchronizes my thoughts, emotions and resonates on the canvas. I rendered it in a bold & vibrant palette. This ongoing journey from Banaras ghat to Sadhu is so peaceful & divine.
