The Indian Art Centre is delighted to present Balraj Khanna’s first 3D digital exhibition. Two rooms showcasing 22 works have been specially designed to provide a strong and realistic effect of how paintings could be arranged in traditional and modern interiors. The use of cutting-edge technology allows collectors to have a unique 3D experience in the comfort of their homes. As they scroll through a dazzling panoramic display, they can click on each artwork and a window will pop up on the screen with their descriptions, prices and zoomed photographs allowing a closer inspection. The aim is to make this exclusive exhibition accessible to a large number of collectors, sometimes too busy to attend gallery shows. We also want to give the opportunity to keen collectors to meet the artist and visit his studio. The collection features a mixture of works realised by the artist at different stages of his career. We have selected early and late works, small and large formats and included paintings for all budgets. A highly anticipated series of never-before-seen small format pictures executed in the 1960s and 1970s is offered to collectors for the first time. To make this event even more unique we are offering a list of exclusive bonuses to all buyers. We hope to take you on a journey of your own.

“As long as I am doing something with my hands, my head and my heart, I feel alive.� Balraj Khanna

Balraj Khanna

Indian-born artist Balraj Khanna came to England in the Swinging 1960s to study English, but instead he took to painting and became `one of the most distinguished painters living in England’ – Bryan Robertson. Khanna has been leading two highly successful careers as a painter and a prolific author. He is a key character in the art world, being an artist, a keen collector, a leading Indian Art expert, curator and published author. He Lectured on Indian art and personal development at Oxford, Cambridge and Manchester Universities, The Royal College, St Martin`s, the South Bank Centre, The Institute of Education, SOAS, MOMA – Oxford, the Hayward Gallery, the Serpentine Gallery, the V&A, the Bradford Museum, the Brighton Museum and other Venues. Khanna has developed his own unique visual language taking inspiration from nature, spirituality and concepts of creation. His stunning paintings have been sold through the most prestigious galleries and leading auction houses in the world. Khana’s first exhibition took place in London in 1965 and his most recent show at MOMA Wales in Machynlleth was a retrospective celebrating more than 50 years as an artist.
