Devotional Art By Pjbhavsar

Ask me anything  

'The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.'

Pablo Picasso


Krishna is at once a beautiful, mischievous cowherd boy playing a flute and the form of God, or Bhaghavan in the Hindu religion. He is said to reside within each particle of creation and within all living things. At the same time, the whole of the universe is contained within Him. 

In any one piece it is impossible to convey what God can be, and what he means to me personally. But these are the ideas I have tried to put together in this painting. The green portion on the left reproduces the tracks of subatomic particles. I always think of this reality coming into existence by the mere thought of God and this is what his closed eyes represent. On the right side I’ve tried to show the whole of the cosmic creation being within His form, thus contrasting his simultaneous presence at both the microscopic and universal scale. I wanted to the painting to be enjoyed at a number of levels both from a distance and close up. To that end I’ve used vibrant colours for distant viewing, and details such as small flying birds and clouds, which make you look again at the appearance of His form.

Gajendra was the king of elephants. While drinking one day with his cohorts at a lake, his foot was caught in the jaws of a powerful crocodile. The crocodile pulled Gajendra into the lake as the elephant attempted with all his might to resist. This struggle lasted 1000 years before the elephant began to weaken. As his strength failed, as a last resort he prayed with all his heart to God, and offered him a lotus flower. Hearing an honest plea for help, God arrived on his winged carrier and rescued Gajendra from the crocodile and the material world.
