Comments about the artist :
R K Sharma is a visionary, a creator and a preserver of a cultural jewel – The Indian Miniature Painting. R K Sharma’s brush brings 3,000 years of cultural imagery blended in an 800 year old art form. One of the last bastions of the Indian Miniature, he keeps alive a burning passion that communicates ideas, beliefs and emotions that few artists could ever come close to. He does not compromise. A traditionalist in spirit he still stands true to using vegetable dyes and stone colours for the depth they bring to his art.
