    Balraj Khanna

    Born in Punjab, India, the artist's journey took unexpected turns that led to a diverse and impactful career in both painting and writing. Initially pursuing a Master of Arts degree in English literature at Chandigarh University, fate intervened when a mishap altered his course, diverting him towards art.

    After a transformative trip to France, he unveiled his artistic talent with his first solo exhibition at New Vision Centre Gallery in 1965. However, his life continued to weave through various paths; from being a foreign correspondent during the India-Pakistan War of 1971–72 to receiving accolades such as the Royal Society of Literature’s Winifred Holtby Prize for his novel 'Nation of Fools' in 1984.

    His artistic style is a vibrant fusion of colour and abstraction, often likened to the works of Klee and Miró but with a distinct and witty flair. Participating in numerous international exhibitions, including notable solo shows at prestigious venues like the Serpentine Gallery and The Museum of Modern Art, Wales, his art has found homes in esteemed collections such as the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi.

    Having lived in London for many years, his artistic journey has been marked by a continuous exploration of creativity, leaving an indelible mark on the global art scene.
