In 2007 Kanwar Singh emerged as a premier artist of Sikh historical paintings of today’s generation when he established ArtofPunjab. His paintings on the lives of the Gurus and iconic Sikh greats are quickly instilling themselves in the consciousness of emerging generations of Sikhs globally. When he conjures up images of Sikh figures, his paintings convey an uncanny sense of presence, capturing the spirit of iconic subjects in defining moments of history.
Since founding ArtofPunjab, Kanwar Singh’s ultimate goal has been to create a legacy of work which will give the Sikh story a prominent place on the walls of our homes and in the hearts of future generations. His work reveals the quintessential moments in Sikh history which have shaped a dynamic Sikh community through its nascent beginnings in medieval Punjab to its present political and spiritual standing as the world’s fifth largest faith group.
