(1932 - 2011)
Sohan Qadri was active/lived in India. Sohan Qadri is known for metaphysical expression painting-abstraction.
Born in 1932 in Punjab, India, Sohan Qadri began his quest for his true self through Tantric yoga and spent long periods of time silently meditating in remote temples in the Himalayas and Tibet. His isolation propelled his urge to paint.
He received his MFA in 1960 from the Government College of Art in Simla, India, but soon discovered that academic trappings were not for him. Shortly after his first exhibition in 1965, he left India for the West.
In Qadri's work, he strives for a tranquil coexistence of binary opposites - male and female, known and unknown, physical and spiritual. Although he clearly has Western influences, such as Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still, his work is uniquely Eastern.
