Condition Report: Signed and dated “Bhanu ‘16” on lower right
Notes: Cool, insistent and calm, this piece is remindful of the soothing colours of the element of water. 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 water. 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 water and the implications that come with it. 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 his artworks have been part of the National Art Gallery’s collection.
