Mahabharata – A Strange Charioteer£ 180.00 – £ 710.00 BUY
This painting is set within a fabulous landscape, the beautiful town of Dwarka – the kingdom of Lord Krishna. The painting captures the moment lovers flee the town. The excitement of two souls running away in full complicity with one another. But the story is deeper than a runaway chariot driven by a strange charioteer.
A woman named Subhadra, Krishna’s sister, and beside her, Krishna’s best friend Arjuna. Subhadra is promised to another and therefore she planned for Arjuna to kidnap her. They break through the doorway of the city, the guards are pushed aside, as their duty fails short of their destiny.
The artist captured the energy of the moment by depicting the dynamic movement of galloping horses through the city, which is the main focus of this scene.

Mahabharata – My Dwarka£ 155.00 – £ 795.00 BUY
Cities are a reflection of the ones who built them. The prosperous city of Dwarka, which was capital of Lord Krishna’s kingdom, was a gateway to heaven. Located in modern day Gujarat, the city of Dwarka is often compared to the city of Atlantis, maybe because they both suffered the same fate of being plunged into the depths of the sea.
This painting represents a moment in the daily life of Dwarka. It was described as a vast area in which architecture, palaces and houses are fully merged in the natural landscape of the west coast of India. You can see Krishna and Balarama in a relaxed conversation, framed by marble and bronze. The sky is painted with lightful strokes creating a wide space for legendary figures and flying creatures that break through a banal perception.
