sohan qadri: the colors of india

Sohan Qadri is an artist, poet, and Buddhist yogi from India. He's lived in Copenhagen for the last 30 years. His paintings result from states of deep meditation, and are informed by the colors of India: luminous, dye-infused works on meticulously serrated paper. Over his long career, Qadri has interacted with a wide array of cultural figures including Surrealist painter Rene Magritte, Nobel laureate Heinrich Boll, and architect Le Corbusier. Qadri has had more than 70 exhibitions in the US, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

The Sundaram Tagore Gallery (New York, Beverly Hills, Hong Kong) is exhibiting Qadri's work under the title "Seer: The Art of Sohan Qadri" in their Hong Kong location. All works are ink and dye on paper and 55 x 39 in. You can get a sneak peak at
