Divine Portraiture by Manivelu A., Gorrick D.V., Reddy S., and Verma M., [JAN 2018 – JAN 2019]

MOSA is happy to present this amazing show called Divine Portraiture consisting of 4 artists who in different ways paint Divine images. Three of them come from South India and one even though born in America studied traditional arts in South India at Mahabalipuram. Devas, Deities and Avatars are painted in different ways but always with great Devotion. The approach is traditional yet it shows a very contemporary nature. As if tradition is not only something of the past but very much something of the present. Manivelu, Verma, Reddy and Gorrick are working in different medium and styles...

Aksharayoga – Sacred Calligraphy by Jayant Silva [JAN 2018 – JAN 2019]

I am pleased to present at MOSA an exhibit of Jayant Silva, a talented artist from Mumbai, India. Jayant’s work exemplifies the possibility to combine aspects of his background in computer science and academia with art and aesthetics. Although Indian art traditionally features figurative portrayals of deities and represents the Divine in many wonderful forms (as can be appreciated in “Divine Portraiture,” another MOSA exhibition), Jayant Silva expresses himself through calligraphy, a more rare art form within Vaishnavism. He has made it his mission to use a rare Sanskrit script called...

Mandalas – Om Prakash [June 2017 – Jan 2018]

It is a great pleasure and honour to present Om Prakash at MOSA. He is a senior artist from India who has an outstanding career as an artist and teacher. I have had the opportunity to meet him on several occasions and go through his collection of works. I feel his art attracts those seeking spirituality as it conveys forms and colours in such a way that it puts us in touch with the inner world and just watching his works is a form of meditation that takes us away from the busy and stressful world of everyday life. I have seen how he keeps track of every work he has ever produced as if they are all children...

The Many Colors of Satsvarupa dasa Goswami [Jan 2017 – May 2017]

It is a great pleasure for the Museum of Sacred Art (MOSA) to present the works of Satsvarupa dasa Goswami, who is well known in ISKCON for his numerous literary contributions, which have helped devotees on the path of devotional service. Although all devotees read or have read his biography of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and some his poetry and fiction, they may not have seen his paintings, which bring his inner world to the canvas in strong colors. His art isn’t sophisticated from an artistic point of view, but it does transmit his emotions, struggles, and joy in practicing...

Madhubani Art (Indian Art Series) – Bharti Dayal [JUNE 2015 – JUNE 2016]

It is with great pleasure that MOSA presents the show Madhubani Art, by Bharti Dayal. Bharti is one the first artists whose work we incorporated into MOSA’s collection and the first with a sufficient number of works at MOSA to make a show. Dealing with her through the years has been inspiring, as she completely loves and identifies with this form of art. Her mastery of the tradition and her capacity to bring it out in contemporary media like acrylic and canvas have made her an ambassador to the modern world of this ancient art of Mithila. She is in love with both the tradition and its themes....
