Event Description : ART EXHIBITION "Mentor Strokes" solo show of paintings by Pankaj Mohan Aggarwal 

Stepping into Roop Chand Institute of Fine Art,  the atmosphere has transitioned to be a lot more calming given the space is known for its more socio-political works. This welcome switch is due to the careful compositions of enchanting artworks by 72 year-old Pankaj Mohan Aggarwal who’s known for his takes on dhyana, an umbrella word for contemplation, reflection and meditation.  

Straight ahead by the benches sits the artist, who does not even notice someone has walked into the space; he’s deeply immersed in the canvas sheet before him, pen in hand. His hand movements seem instinctual and his body language is relaxed — no tension at all!

 “This is manthan (churning), maya (illusion) and kalachakra (time-cycles) which come together to create what we perceive as our lifelines,” he explains. He adds that working with mixed mediums is integral in signifying the different layers of life and the various elements thrown our way.

These works encompass dhyana with the typical elements of lotus flowers, Buddha, faces in profile, sunbeams and other energy-focussed allusions.

Towards the back of the gallery are similar pieces but in black and white with gilded detailing, perhaps offering up a different artistic vernacular and tone altogether. Take note of the chequerboard in all of these; Pankaj says they’re indicative of the way we have to make mindful choices in life. One will notice that Pankaj has placed himself in every painting, be it as a boat or as a tiny bird with Pankaj’s face — and because these are comparatively small, it should remind us just how large the universe really is.

Be sure to get to know Pankaj through these works if you pop by Roop Chand Institute of Fine Art; he’s a treasure trove in India’s art community. The main peg with Pankaj’s works — and this is what countless artists strive for — is that, while his masterpieces are eye-catching, they leave quite a lasting mental and emotional impact on the beholder.
