MAJESTIC-Beyond the Boundaries

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

1st Aug – 13th Aug(The Air Gallery)
15th Aug – 3rd Sept (The Gallery in Cork Street)

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.

    Hey bro,
    What can I say?! We have no words to express our appreciation. Thank you so much, it looks stunning. We hope this inspires others to follow their dreams and bring something new into the world.

    Hello Milan,
    Your article was beautiful. Painting allows for such a full expression of emotion. I picked up my first paintbrush when I was 18. I used to do oil paints but now do colored pencil, to avoid the mess. Other than blogging, I haven’t explored my creative side in several years and I am itching to get back to it. The arts are so healing. Congratulations on your shows. Have a great time at the festival

    • Milan Bakrania says:

      Hey Lisa, thank you for your kind comments. You’re right, the arts are extremely healing and satisfying. Hope you get back to oil painting soon, it is very rewarding. Thanks again.

    I think work is a powerful form of self-expression, especially the creative arts.

    • Milan Bakrania says:

      Hi J.D. I agree with you. Art is another form of expression just like speaking and writing. It can also be extremely powerful and life-changing.

  4. Milan, I remember Amit wrote about the book you wrote and now you and Bhumi are doing art show! Pretty neat and cool artistic couple you both are!

    Amit, you seemed to have a great artsy friends, no wonder as you are one yourself. I also do oil painting and sketches, I am too far in US, else I would surely check out the show. Good luck.


    • Milan Bakrania says:

      Hi Preeti,

      Thank you so much for your kind words.

      I believe everyone is an artist, every single individual has the ability to be creative…it is an innate gift which should be encouraged from a young age.

      You are far away in the US! Not too worry, we will soon be putting some sample images on our website ( so you can see some of our work there.

      Good luck with your art as well.

      Milan and Bhumi

      Hey Preeti, maybe we can ask milan nicely so he can send you some photo’s what do you think – Milan?

  5. Linda Hack says:

    Your art is beautiful. And I most love your story behind it. It’s quite amazing. While watching the aftermath of 9/11, I was compelled to pick up a pencil and start drawing images unseen in my mind. My hand was guided to draw so many images that I eventually published them. Drawing is not my true calling, but I think spreading the word that angels and spirit guides and answers to prayers exist is. I’m glad you found yours.

    • Milan Bakrania says:

      Hey Thanks Linda,
      It’s very true, moments of shock or extreme happiness can bring out the light in people. People can end up doing great things. In my opinion, it’s difficult to accurately say where the premonitions come from, is it an angel, spirit guide, god or our true self digging through the luggage?! The best thing is to accept what is given and use it to better the world around. Thank you for your kind comments.

      Hey Milan, excellent! I still have not been yet but now thankfully, things have calmed down considerably and I can’t wait to go and check it out! Hope it’s all going well!!
