Description Men (and women) from all over the world and throughout history have been in search of pleasant sites and sounds, tastes and sensations, and attitudes. They noticed that even in the best of times, without sickness, death and horrors of old age, happiness and pleasure could only be felt temporarily by having to repeat things like eating delicious food, having professional success and celebrating festivals. Many over the ages accepted this as a fact of life, and lived their lives around reiterating this temporary relief.However, some began to wonder whether there was a form of happiness that was not dependent on having ones family and friends within arms reach, or taking all kinds of drugs. They began to train their attention from moment to moment experience to see whether there was a greater happiness to be discovered at all, one that was independent of sensory experience.Read more at:http://sikhiart.com/for-sale/guru-nanak-dev/
Bhagat Singh SikhiArt.com, GTA Region Member Since July 2008 Artist Statement Bhagat Singh was born in Ludhiana, and moved to Canada when he was young. He has been painting Sikh history since he moved to Canada many years ago. He used to paint historical works done by famous Sikh artists like Sobha Singh and Kirpal Singh. Later in hischool, he started doing concept art for Sarbloh Warriors and later, Elvana. Having an interest in sciences, Bhagat enrolled in the Biology program in Ryerson. However, his painting interests had become his passion over the summer. Feeling that Sikhs are under represented in the media, Bhagat took the responsibility of putting Sikhs out there, and worked on his Sikh Mutants storyline, in hischool. He also started reading the many blood filled pages of Sikh history, being quite interested in the Sikh philosophy as well. It was during the summer of his first year in Ryerson, when he decided to paint those episodes of Sikh history. Bhagat is now striving to be a great artist and an intelligent Biology student.
