Charlie Chaplin once said that nobody lives long enough to be anything but an amateur. This expression unequivocally applies to artists, for creating art is a continuous process of learning and discovery.
In order to bring the fascinating riches of artistic creativity within the reach of the mankind, ANOKHII has collaborated with artists from around the world in compiling this book. My desire is to arouse creativity and evoke a feeling of depth by bringing the plethoric wealth of art into this book.
By faithfully rendering the simplicity and richness of these paintings, this book intends to preserve the ‘universal language’ of art.
Painting is produced when diverse range of colours harmonise together. By blending all the remarkable paintings, I wish to create harmony.
In Carl Sagan’s words, ‘In the vastness of space and the immensity of time, it is my joy..’ to edit this book. Editing this book has been a huge task. I feel fortunate to have worked on it and want to thank all artists for their contributions, thoughtful opinions and patience.
I hope that this book will be an ever-present source of inspiration, offering the remarkable panorama of artists around the world.
To anyone who gives close mindfulness, the insights and visions contained in these paintings will extend way beyond to define what art truly is.
I extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to all the valuable personalities who supported me in releasing the book
