Seema Kohli’s Celestial Revelations [Jun 2019 – Jan 2020]

It’s with great pleasure that MOSA presents Seema Kohli’s wonderful show “Celestial Revelations,” curated by Sushma Bahl. I’ve known Seema for many years, and her enthusiasm and complete dedication to the visual and performing arts have captured and energised me. Her unique style is an explosion of colours and forms, depicting many relevant topics and issues. No observer or spectator remains indifferent while looking at one of Seema’s works. The paintings, sculptures, videos, photographs, and tridimensional paintings we’re presenting today...

Devotees: Portraits by Fergus Quinn [Jan 2019 – March 2019]

The Museum of Sacred Art (MOSA) is happy to present “Devotees: Portraits by Fergus Quinn” The works are portraits made by Fergus Quinn, of devotees mainly from the UK ISKCON Yatra, done over a period of several years. Fergus captures the facial expressions of many wonderful devotees that have enriched our Vaishnava Community. The show consists of approximately 25 works some small others quite large. In ISKCON, as it is traditional in Vaishnava Communities, association with devotees is of paramount importance. Fergus has personally captured this important aspect of devotional life and transferred...

The Devotional Art by Kamal Ahmed M. [JAN 2019 – JUN 2019]

We are excited to present this solo show by the artist Kamal Ahmed from Karnataka in South India. From the moment I saw his work, several years back with Mr R.G. Singh at Ramsons Kala Pratishtana in Mysore, I fell in love with his style and unique renditions of Krishna’s pastimes. In order to have enough works for a solo show, we commissioned from him a series on the Ramayana (the story of Lord Rama), on the avatars (God’s incarnations) and on the devas (the demigods). To produce this body of work, he dived into each subject, perfectly capturing the essence of each pastime with his unique...

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....
