Museum of Civilisation - 2500 BC till date
oil on canvas, 770mmX510mm, unframed, ready to hang

This started as an independent work. Then I realised it has considerable influence of two writers - Thomas Bernhard, an austrian and G A Kulkarni , an Indian. Both have a rather low opinion of humanity.

for sale $1200,  packing forwarding included, postage extra

My other works based on their books -

Boat People by ckp
Boat People
oil on canvas, 60cmsx76cms

This is about the so-called Boat People - illegal migrants from Africa to Europe - mainly Italy and Burmese/Bangladeshis to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia.
The former's number runs into hundreds of thousands per year; the latter's in thousands. Many die in the journey as boats are not sea-worthy, over-crowded. This April more than 800 africans on way to Italy died as the boat capsized.
People leave their home-countries because of poverty, absence of government giving rise to persecution, lawlessness or religious discrimination.
Needless to say, they are not welcome as immigrants.

The paintings you are about to see are not all decorative. They try to depict the real world around us.

Attempt is mainly to document collective miseries of peoples and investigate social pathology behind the misery. The dominant political discourse today is dictated by the state, market and media - none bothered about the weak. The alternative to this discourse seems to drift towards being self-obsessed - hedonist, reclusive or esoteric. So there is a need to reiterate that hunger, poverty and violence still afflict a vast majority of humans in the world.

The paintings endeavour to state this problem. They will have served their purpose if they make you pause and think. May be, then you would be kind enough to leave some feed-back on any of the paintings you fancy.
Perhaps now only Dalai Lama has that moral stature and mantle of Mahatma Gandhi in the world.
