An exhibition of paintings by the artist Gurpreet Singh (Punjab) was held in the Exhibition Hall of the International Roerich Memorial Trust from October 12 to 15. About seventy of his paintings were on display, as well as several paintings by his artist-colleagues Balraj Barodh and Som Tamang (Nepal).

The Chief guest at the opening of the exhibition was Mrs Natalia Bazhenova, a member of of the Kazakhstan Artists Union and head of the Applied Arts Department in the Kasteyev Arts State Museum of Kazakhstan. Indian and Russian Curators of the IRMT Mr Suresh Kumar and Mrs Larisa Surgina invited the guests to light the traditional lamp and congratulated the artists on the opening of the exhibition. They noted that October is a special month in the Roerichs Estate when the traditional Roerich Festival of Culture is held and many guests come to the Roerichs Estate, and wished the exhibition a successful work.

Several years ago visitors already had an opportunity to get acquainted with the Gurpreet Singh’s art works in the IRMT. His watercolors, characterised by attention to color, light and detail, and mostly created in plain air, attracted the attention of many art lovers.

This time, in addition to watercolors, the artist presented a new facet of his work – miniature paintings. They are best viewed with a magnifying glass, so thoroughly detailed are such tiniest details as fish scales, corn kernels, veins on leaves or tiles on the roof of rural houses.

Gurpreet Singh’s paintings are created in different techniques, but all of his works are characterized by an attentive, thoughtful look at the world around him and a desire to capture its diversity and beauty. The Svetoslav Roerich’s words “Let us strive for the Beauty!” are fully in line with his creativity.
