INDIA---An Osho follower was looking at an abstract painting even as tears kept rolling down his cheeks. When asked the reason, he said “I have been meditating for decades. I am directed to look for a peak point where I find God. I feel his presence here.” He then went on to buy the canvas, titled “Truth, truth, and…”. Many may not buy this, but this how viewers often react to abstract works by Jaspreet Gujral. What makes his art unique is that it has been created by a Colonel and are a spiritual reflection of a journey the painter has been undertaking for close to three decades now. [link]
