Notes: Bold, strong and dauntless, these two pieces is remind fulL of the strong, warm colours of the elements of earth and fire. 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. This is perhaps an ode to the element of fire and of earth. Although the artist goes beyond the rules of the physical, representational and figurative manifestations of solid forms and figures, he creates a stunning piece that evokes from the viewers a strong admiration of fire and the implications that come with it – passion, strength, anger, inner demons, bright and headstrong. 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 for about forty years and and his artworks have been part of the National Art Gallery’s collection.
