Painting a divine being

The motif of Krishna has been omnipresent in Indian visual and performing arts, from inspiring classical dancers and thespians to painters and sculptors of all mediums. Vrindavan-based artist and Padma Shri recipient, Krishn Kanhai, known for his unique gold leaf paintings, is also one of the many artists who found his muse in Krishna over the years.

Exhibiting about 40 oof his paintings of what he calls the Contemporary Golden Krishna, the senior artist is happy to put up his first show in Delhi.

“Krishna is in all arts and interpreted by all artists in their way. No form of art is considered complete without Krishna. My father started doing gold paintings, and I’m continuing the tradition in a contemporary way. I work with mixed media — 24 karat gold leaf, acrylic and oil on canvas, carrying forward the essence of traditional techniques into contemporary. It’s 45 years of hard work that I’m exhibiting in Delhi for the first time,” says Kanhai, 61.

The artist’s use of gold leaf on his canvasses brings out vibrancy in them.

Padma Bhushan recipient and icons of Kuchipudi dance, Raja Radha Reddy, say that, “Krishn Kanhai’s name has become familiar all over Bharat as a great, devoted painter. Whenever we see his painting exhibitions, we always recollect our memory of seeing the unique paintings at Ajanta and Ellora. We’re happy that his paintings are being exhibited in our Natya Tarangini art gallery.”
