Art of Punjab: Sikh Paintings by Kanwar Singh Dhillon
« on: May 31, 2008, 01:08:14 AM »
Check out these Sikh paintings by Kanwar Singh Dhillon from his website Art of Punjab... there's more in the Sketchbook.  Best thing is you can buy them (I know I'm getting some for my home)... Extremely good stuff, reminds me of Sobha Singh's paintings...



Banda Singh Bahadur


Guru Nanak's Oddyssey


Akali Phoola Singh



Vaisakhi

Akali Nihung (Red Chalk)



Biography:


Born in Amritsar India, Kanwar Singh Dhillon has been engaged in the process of art making for as long as he can remember. He is influenced by a host of past masters such as Sobha Singh, Caravaggio and J.W Waterhouse.

Growing up in Toronto Canada, Kanwar explored several paths that would allow him to work as a professional artist including animation and book illustration. However, it wasn’t until he started to take an interest in the history of the Sikhs that his art took a definitive turn for the better.

With his painting style Kanwar Singh Dhillon aspires to combine the grace and beauty of Sobha Singh’s portraits with the documentary style of Sikh history painters such as Devender Singh. Punjab’s history is rich with the exploits of heroes and sages from the time of Alexander to Maharaja Ranjit Singh. The spread of the Sikh faith and the rise of the Kalsa have featured heavily in his recent works.
