Comics to the Cosmos

A STUNNING COCKTAIL OF ART, MYTHOLOGY, AND SPIRITUALITY. “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever,” said the poet John Keats. Artist Abhishek Singh, then, has to be a fount of joy considering he creates things of beauty—his drawings, paintings, comics, and graphic novel Krishna: A Journey Within—quite prodigiously. His interview with Khabar reveals why his art is far beyond the mundane. Visually stunning. Mystical. Multilayered. Ancient, yet stylishly contemporary. Watching him work, with his staccato style of pencil or brush marks is at first suspenseful, and then, eventually, as the creation unravels, awe-inspiring. He draws inspiration from “Hindu mythology, Vedic texts, quantum mechanics, botany, neuroscience, and the Italian Renaissance.” Music and sports fire his creativity and challenge him.
