‘The Spiritual’ will highlight the work of three South Asian artists from India, Sri Lanka and London who are all, in very different ways, dedicated to creating art of a spiritual, perhaps transcendental, form.
The Noble Sage is proud to introduce the tantric, mesmeric ‘circle’ paintings of 84-year-old artist Prafulla Mohanti to our collection. Mohanti is one of the pioneer Indian artists working in the UK in the 1970s. Over more than five decades Mohanti has drawn continually on the transformative experiences during his childhood in Orissa, India, to produce colourful metaphysical circles and ovals forms that usher in a sense of the ethereal-divine.
‘The Spiritual’ also spotlights two younger artists that create outstanding work in this field. The youngest, known by his alias Eccentric-O, is a Belgium-born London artist with Pakistani heritage. Eccentric-O’s mixed media paintings combine the power of ancient design, knowledge and calligraphy with the youthful worlds of digital technology, social media and graffiti art, all to enrich the soul and inspire creativity in the onlooker.
