He has held solo shows and his artworks have featured prominently in significant group exhibitions in India and abroad. He has been richly decorated with various other awards.

Words are hurdles when silence sings volumes in the artworks in this Show “Aura of Silence”. Holding the leading and enriching hand of Buddhist teachings and way of life, this artist has transformed his art practice and life into a personification of the Buddhist way of life. Silence becomes the primary factor in all artworks, as does the deep rooted understanding of life and its truths. The works become relevant as they focus upon the kaleidoscopic essence of the teachings of Buddha. The symbolism and also the depiction of a spiritual aura which emanates from the works, addressing the inner spirit of all of humanity, bring to the viewer the very core of the philosophy.
Aura Art is India’s leading Art Promotion House, promoted by Mr Daljit Singh Sethi and his sons Harmeet and Rishiraj, to fill the gaps in the Indian Art Industry – identifying and discovering value amongst the best of Indian art, utilising every available platform to promote art, assisting art lovers in building and maintaining their collections, working closely with the design space to meet their aesthetic requirements – with an aspiration to migrate to a fully Integrated Art House.
