Bhanu Achan was initially sent to India to study medicine, where he began to delve further into the teachings of Hinduism, yoga, dharma and karma. This spiritual side is ever-present in his paintings. His career has spanned about forty years and his artworks have been part of the National Art Gallery’s collection. This piece is reminiscent of the soothing colours of the element of sky – cool and calm. With big, purposeful and insistent brush strokes, he incorporates his thoughts and emotions into his paintings. A lover of nature, Bhanu draws inspiration from it.
