This is a fantastic Guest Post by Milan Bakrania – Writer, Artist; to let you know about his spiritual art exhibition happening soon in London.
The Exclusive works of Bhumi & Milan
Two years ago, Bhumi (my wife) sat down and decided to paint. She was the first to embark on this fantastic journey. In a matter of months she had created an entire range of paintings based on ethnic motifs and vibrant colours, all from the depths of her imagination. Swaroop Arts was born and I was hooked.
Her perseverance and style inspired me to pick up a paint brush for the first time since primary school. The empty canvas lay before me and, in a matter of hours, my first creation was born; a landscape painted without any reference whatsoever. The gates were opened and nothing could stop us from flooding the empty canvases with our thoughts and colour. A true calling that could no longer be ignored!
We held our first exhibition last year in London at the end of a mediocre summer and, despite the frequent downpours, the response was overwhelming. The private view left us gob-smacked. It was one of those days when we knew that it was all worth it. A moment of pure satisfaction, money couldn’t buy that moment! We subsequently sold four paintings in one week and generated plenty of interest.
A year later, we are back! But this time with 2 separate shows, one after another, in the heart of the world famous Mayfair. We begin where we left off last year, in the Air Gallery. This year we are exhibiting fresh and exciting creations which will leave you spellbound! Come mid-August, you can catch us in The Gallery in Cork Street. Here you will see more of our exclusive paintings laced with colour and joy.
Is there a theme to your exhibitions? I hear you ask. Well, you see, one painting is so different to the next that it is difficult to classify them, and that’s the beauty of what we do. Each creation is truly unique. Once we’ve expressed one idea, it is difficult and considerably monotonous to replicate that on another canvas. Also, Bhumi and I have a different approach to painting which also results in more variety.
We have always nourished our souls with creativity. It’s just our method of expression and communication. Be it through music, dance, art or creative writing, to us they’re different waves of the same ocean. So looking back, it doesn’t surprise us that we forged the path that we did.
So come on down and join us for this month-long festival. It would be an honour to distribute some of the joy we have felt in bringing something new into the world.
