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 Museum of Sacred Art (MOSA) in Radhadesh, Belgium, is exhibiting the works of famous Indian mandala painter Om Prakash Sharma, whose meeting with Srila Prabhupada left an impact on him. Now 85 years old, Om Prakash has had a long and productive career including serving as Dean at the Delhi College of Art for over a decade. He met Srila Prabhupada at Dr. Mishra’s yoga studio in New York City on December 15th, 1965 – before ISKCON was incorporated. Om Prakash was in New York on a scholarship with Columbia University, while Prabhupada was experiencing his first winter in the Big Apple.
