Artist Bhanu Dudhat, age 64 years does not see himself as an artist, but as someone who strives to preserve India’s rich culture and glorious history. His artworks are a testimony to this fact, and more, as they depict with stark clarity several events of mythological and religious significance. At the age of five, temple walls were his canvas, where he used to make portraits of national leaders as well as Gods. His talent and creations grew in stellar proportions over the years. The artist is exhibited his latest works ‘Ramayana Scroll Painting’- 12th Oct, 2015 to 20th Oct, 2015 at Rangoli Metro Art Center, Bengaluru.

“Initially, it was the thrill of seeing every painting takes shape. Later, my aim was to create works that were unprecedented in terms of concept as well as magnitude. I realized that Indian epics, religious texts as well as historical events would be the best artistic inspiration,”

His educational qualifications and contributions, exhibitions and collections are plenty and have been lauded world over. Highlight of his career as an artist is the scroll painting work he undertook first in 1985, in order to widen his horizons and translate his ideas into real work. “I always felt that an artist’s creations should be of use to the society in terms of information and insights. That is why I started to create scroll paintings of the Mahabharata, the Ramayana, the Bible, history of India — how our country has shrunk due to centuries of wars and annexations,” he said as he sat in his home with all the massive paintings. From a 1200m scroll painting based on the Mahabharata that he started in 1987 and completed in 1991, to several others, Dudhat continues this work till date.
