 A Sculptor and a Painter, Atul’s work has now acquired the quality of the seer’s crystal ball. What is utterly fascinating is that while the surrealists have used overwhelming sometimes grotesque if powerful images to break into this world of perception, Atul does it with an abstract three dimensional medium that is nothing and yet, it is one’s thousands of years of accumulated cosmic experience permeating one’s soul. An important Swedish Daily wrote ‘The most exceptional exhibit is Atul Bakshi’s glass installation ’Behold the Blooms’ with lotus like flowers, yellow and orange on man height stems.

 Artist presently lives in Delhi
