Tripat K Kalra, Gallery Director’s Note (excerpts):
“In my many years of looking at landscapes I was moved by the language of Nabibakhsh as an artist. I was drawn into the vocabulary of his vision. Over the past few days I have been looking at his landscapes. With a single stroke he can create a river, a hill, the clouds, the chasm and the trees. Nothing seems manipulated or difficult. It’s all in sync, we experience the flow. We are part of the experience and that is the whole rhythm of his many realms.
I saw that he has his own lexicon of language. There is always a great difference in the work of various artists when we look at it through the glimpses of history, memory and experience.

Artists bring about their own visual experiences of life onto the works that they create. According to me Nabibakhsh ji is a happy and content human being – he transmits very positive energy through his art, this same energy is reflected in every canvas; regardless of the colour palette.
His understanding of colour is deep and crystal clear. For him the land he loves is filled with elements of life and the living.The way he frames everything into his design is like a channeling of his own energy and his love for the land and its atmosphere and environment.”
