  • ABOUT Amit Bhar

    Amit Bhar’s art is influenced and inspired by the landscape of Bengal, where he spent his childhood. The quiet rustic beauty of its countryside, the quintessential sights and daily goings-on of villages and settlements along the Hooghly river and local trees, flowers and birds are intrinsic to his art. His other big muse is the sacred city of Benaras and its atmospheric Ghats. The mystical beauty of the holy river and the throng of humanity on its banks come alive in the Bangalore-based artist’s atmospheric works. Nothing escapes his keen eye – the multitude of bathers and pilgrims, the boatmen, the colourful sadhus, children and the rituals and pageantry all come to life in his paintings. But Bhar’s intention is not documentation. Instead, he creates a meditative setting that draws you into a state of contemplation. In his works, Benaras emerges like a beautiful mirage. A world of mystical shadow and light with a silvery mist enveloping the setting. The paintings pierce the veil between the mundane and the spiritual, the illusory and the real.
