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...

Photo Gallery: Om Prakash – Mandalas, 10th of Jun 2017

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.  

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...
