“Between Crest and Trough: Breathing Silence” Revealing the Art of Dr. Bharat Thakur
Dr. Bharat Thakur is well known as a revolutionary Yogi who has been instrumental in making yoga a household name; successfully spreading the science to million of followers and now that he is finally revealing his artworks; already creating ripples in the Artistic community. His first international solo exhibition was showcased at The Gallery Of Art at DUCTAC, Mall Of The Emirates from 20th -26th July 2017.
Dubai is the city for his first international solo art exhibition; showcasing 54 of his original Paintings, from Abstracts to stark Portraits – the Artworks offer a wide range of emotions and expressions; each piece is also supported by poetry penned by this creative genius.
Dr. Bharat Thakur explains what art means to him, “Art makes me complete, Art is what drives me, Art is what I am passionate about. Art allows me to rediscover myself and in my opinion art is the path to sainthood…” Even though, the world is just learning about Dr Bharat’s passion for art, he has been actively painting since the young age of 17 years; he has been constantly learning and developing his craft throughout his life.
When asked about his work process, Dr Bharat Thakur says, “Loads of planning and conceptualizing are first done in my mind. When I touch the canvas to paint these ideas are processed… I work that way mostly, I process in my brain and then I execute.”
I had a chance to catch up with him one day prior to his solo exhibition in the region. Catch my exclusive interview with Dr. Bharat Thakur below as he explains about why his art isn’t affordable and much more.
The opening night welcomed some of the guests include notable Dignitaries, Media & Press, Bollywood Celebrities and the respectable Guest of Honour; Mr. Yasser Al Gergawi – Director of Cultural Events at the Ministry of Culture & Knowledge Development will be in attendance.
