Salman Khan Exhibits 'Motherhood' Art in Bengaluru

The most famous of Salman Khans is known for his Bollywood acting. Another Salman Khan is known for his non-profit educational organization, Khan Academy. A third Salman Khan is known for his captivating artwork. Actually, Salman Khan the actor is also Salman Khan the artist. Khan doesn’t just dabble in art—he’s a serious artist who recently had a solo exhibition entitled “Motherhood – an Artistic Ode to Mother Teresa” at Bengaluru’s gallery G.

“I like to express myself with films. With the stories that I tell. With the songs that I sing. With the dialogues that I deliver. And sometimes, I like expressing it with color and a blank canvas,” Khan said. Three of his paintings, named “Still In Hope of Compassion,” “Begging for Peace” and “Immortal Selfless in a Selfish World,” were displayed in the gallery.

An admirer of Mother Teresa’s humanitarian work, Khan describes the painting “Still In Hope of Compassion” with these words: “There are wars. There is loss. There are pandemics to deal with. But there is also hope. And Mother Teresa tells us no matter what the odds, hope will always win.” Khan initially presented “Immortal Selfless in a Selfish World” last year and the positive reviews helped bring about the exhibition of two other works in his ‘Motherhood’ series, according to Gitanjali Maini, director of gallery G.
