Fountain-Art and Peace-Birds
A prolific artist, Sri Chinmoy has created two cast collections of fine art, exploring the expression of spirituality through a variety of artistic media. His collection of acrylic paintings he has dubbed “Jharna-Kala”, Bengali for “Fountain-Art”. Numbering over 200,000 works, this incredible series has been appreciated worldwide for its unique ability to uplift and inspire. The cascading colors and visually arresting asymmetry are a spectacle of creativity that must be experience to be fully appreciated.
Sri Chinmoy’s Peace-Birds are an equally staggering offering. In drawing over 15 million sketches of birds, Sri Chinmoy has explored the significance of this symbol of peace and freedom far beyond imagination’s flight.
Together, this art for consciousness has become art for the public. Hundreds of exhibitions of Sri Chimoy’s meditative art have been offered at public locations around the world and in public one-man shows, always free of charge, in an effort to bring art directly to people. Shows have been held at major landmarks such as the U.S. Capitol rotunda and various national parliaments, in museums, including a special public exhibit at the Louvre, and in public spaces such as airports, universities and schools.
Sri Chinmoy uses art and, in particular, his public exhibits to draw people together by the thousands to a space that encourages personal unfoldment and collective upliftment of consciousness.
