R.K. Saini, a self taught artist inspired by the aura of black ink

THE HINDU
By Jaideep Deo Bhanj
The works on display at the IIC have an overtone of spiritualism and mysticism.
INDIA---It was a chance experiment with Chinese black ink that led R.K. Saini, a self taught artist and retired senior government official, to come up with his latest exhibition called “Aura-The Mystery”. Mr. Saini said he started by creating perfect circles on a paper using black ink. He then lifted colour off the black circle with a thin brush to create figures and designs that form part of his mystical works. Images of sages and wizard like figures lend a spiritual tone to his paintings. [link]
