Born in 1965, the artist Bharat Bhushan Singh secured an MFA in Painting from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. He is influenced by the splendour and aura of ancient cities and civilisations. His works evoke the city of Varanasi or Benaras using bright colours and modernist techniques. The city of Varanasi , in his works, comes alive like a somewhat surreal, dream sequence as the houses, boats, ghats all seem to merge in the colourful melee of his works.
Bharat Bhushan Singh’s works have a well-fitting combination of realism and abstractionism. The artist seems to have mastered rather well the art of light and shadow. A certain canvas almost brings alive lit houses at dusk. The artist makes a genuine attempt to find harmony in the city’s somewhat chaotic life.
Bharat Bhushan Singh was awarded by the All India Fine Arts & Crafts Society, New Delhi in 2007. The award was presented by eminent artist, Satish Gujaral. The artist was also invited by the 2010 Organising Committee, Commonwealth Games to participate in the milestone event ‘ 200 Days to Go’.
The artist lives and works in Delhi.Back to Artists View Artworks of Bharat Bhushan Singh
