Enamel on metal
An active member of the Delhi Silpi Chakra, Bishamber Khanna dabbled in several mediums to evolve as one of Indian modern art's foremost painters. He was one of the few artists in India who practiced enamelling, a technique used mainly to embellish jewellery, and to which he brought artistic finesse. His unique works are explorations of abstraction, creating interesting forms while dwelling on esoteric concepts through symbology. The difficult process belies the smooth surface of the compositions that are both, powerful and serene.
