Art has been my passion and purpose for the last five decades. My inspiration originates in ancient Indian scriptures that reveal the natural cosmic order in the universe. My paintings depict the human quest to explore & realize the higher self.

“Cosmos, Evolution and Trinity”.

“These words have always taken me back to an ancient world. Being a post graduate in the natural sciences I had a keen desire to gain more knowledge on these subjects. I envisioned science as a spiritual undertaking – a vehicle that would lead me to a better understanding of this beautiful cosmic universe that we live in.

Earlier, I looked outward for subjects to paint but a continuous introspection and meditative study channelized my efforts towards the energy in metaphysical subjects. The use of metallic foil on my paintings is an attempt to go beyond the figurative and to capture the source of energy in the form of cosmic manifestations. Not only am I engaged in a continuing search for self realization but also strive to understand the roots of creativity in all its cosmic beauty”. 


A thinking, bold and experimental artist, Sarla Chandra’s tryst with art and Indian culture has spanned over fifty years.  With more than 50 solo exhibitions and 40 group shows to her credit, her signature paintings are treasured by connoisseurs of art all over the world.

Born in 1943, Sarla is a post graduate in science from the prestigious St. John’s College, Agra. However subjects that have always fascinated her like Indian philosophy, mythology and the scriptures – have slowly manifested themselves onto her canvas.

She has experimented with a variety of mediums – oils, acrylics, watercolours, etching, lithographs, but her unique use of ‘Bhojpatra’-parchment, ‘Repousse’-metal embossing and ‘Varakh’-gold and silver foil, are unorthodox techniques that recreate the aura of our ancient cultural heritage. 

Painting for Sarla is not merely a profession but a form of meditation; a compulsive inner urge for expression and exploration of the capabilities of the mind. Her brush generates energy, drawing inspirations from all faces of nature, and traditions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Sufiism, and Christianity.

Rightly hailed as one of the most intellectual artists in India today, her art allows each admirer to take home their own interpretation. Her works are never static. Each of her paintings pulsates with ‘Prana’ creating a spiritual experience for the viewer.

This fusion of spirituality and artistic creativity is not only very powerful and brilliant, but has contributed significantly in promoting the essence of Indian culture to the present generation.
