Guru Amar Das ji – Langar Seva
In Bhagat’s painting, Guru Amar Das ji stirs the milk in pure devotion to Hari, while Mata Mansa Devi ji brings forth the rice to add to the milk, to make kheer (pudding). Guru Pita ji provides the spirit and Mata ji provides the material, and together this results in something beautiful.

He wears the Cummerbund of Jat – Self-Control. He wears the Turban of Surti – Awareness – and the turban’s Farla flares above, showing his Mastery over himself and his craft. Together with the Sadh Sangati – the Holy Congregation – Baba ji rides to Mukti – Liberation from the Cycle of Births and Deaths.

Bhai Taru Singh ji
My painting of Bhai Taru Singh ji shows him meditating after his scalp was removed by the Mughal executioner. Admist the darkness, Bhai Sahib reclines back as a beacon of light and shows us that the path to enlightenment is to uphold Dharma.
The tradition of sikh art in Punjab, has always depicted Bhai Taru Singh ji having his scalp removed but it has always missed the key aspect of this story – Bhai Sahib’s internal state. Bhagat’s painting zooms in specifically on Bhai Sahib’s inner state to highlight the importance of meditation. Buy prints of Bhai Taru Singh ji if you are looking for daily inspiration to meditate.
Mai Bhago ji – New Edition
Mai Bhago ji was distressed to hear that a group of 40 Singhs had deserted Guru Gobind Singh ji during the Battle of Anandpur. She rode to their gathering, made them realize their mistake and then set off along with them to find Guru Sahib, who was still being followed by the Mughals. She fought alongside the 40 Sikhs and Guru Gobind Singh ji, in the Battle of Khidrana/Muktsar.
Sikh paintings rarely show women that are dressed in 1700s clothing, however Bhagat’s sikh art shows authentic historical clothing. Buy prints of Mai Bhago ji for inspiration to achieve your goals, to serve the Guru, and to meditate.
Guru Arjun Dev ji – Spiritual Blossoming
This painting developed over time as the result of reading Guru Arjun Dev ji’s bani and feeling the emotions expressed therein. Bhagat was himself also moved to tears by the love Guru Maharaj expressed for Akal Purakh Sahib so he just had to create this portrait.
Sikh paintings of Guru Arjan Dev ji Maharaj have never radiated with so much spiritual energy as Bhagat’s original painting. Buy prints to express your love for Guru ji.
Bhai Vir Singh ji
Bhai Vir Singh ji was a giant in Punjabi literature. His works have rejuvenated Punjabi writing and have heavily influenced the Sikh psyche many generations after him.
Sikh art of Bhai Vir Singh ji is so rare that artist Bhagat Singh Bedi wanted to promote Bhai Sahib, through Sikhi Art™.
Guru Gobind Singh ji – Vaisakhi
On the day of Vaisakhi, 1699, Guru Gobind Singh ji did the initiation ceremony a little differently. He called for his devoted sikhs to give up their life. From the shocked crowd, one brave man got up and offered his head to Guru Sahib. He bowed down and performed the namahskar to Guru Sahib with folded hands. This was the birth of the Khalsa.
This painting not only depicts a key aspect of our great sikh history but looks surprisingly impressive in living rooms! Buy sikh art prints of Guru Gobind Singh ji for inspiration to perform Responsible Actions and Meditation.
Adi Guru – Guru Nanak Dev ji
Guru Nanak Dev ji nourishes our soul the way the sun nourishes the trees, plants and all the greenery in the painting. He brings peace to our hearts and gives us wholesome rest in this tiresome world.

Hari Singh ji Nalwa – New Edition
Hari Singh Nalwa was a great general of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s kingdom. At a young age, while on a hunting trip, he was attacked by a tiger. With his bare hands, he pushed back the tiger, drew his sword and decapitated the beast. He was known for his excellent swordsmanship and chivalry. The painting of the general of Punjab, will bring royalty to any place it is displayed it.
Bhagat’s sikh paintings are packed with tons small details. Buy largest size prints for this piece to really appreciate the work that went into it. This painting makes a good first impression in office space, and looks beautiful on the walls of your home.
Pita Kalu ji Holding Baby Nanak
Pita Mehta Kalu ji looks at newly born Baby Nanak’s face, in a peaceful and serene trance state, holding him in his hands for the first time. In this painting, I wanted to paint a portrait of Mehta Kalu ji, keeping the main focus on Pita ji, while also showing the light of Guru Nanak Dev ji and his divine arrival on earth.
The sikh art tradition has never painted the father, Pita ji, of Guru Nanak Dev ji in the way Bhagat Singh of Sikhi Art™ has. It is truly a unique print. This painting is incredibly textured, buy canvas prints for that traditional oil painting look.
1984 Operation Blue Star – Sant Jarnail Singh ji Bhindranwale
In this painting, Sant Jarnail Singh ji Bhindranwale defends himself against the attacks by the Indian army, who had brought in tanks in order to break through the fortifications put up by Sant Jarnail Singh ji. It was a tragic event that occured in June 1984, where many lost their lives, including the innocent pilgrims who had gathered at the temple to celebrate Guru Arjun Dev ji’s martyrdom.
Sikhi Art™ has the most beautiful sikh paintings. This piece is no different. It creates such intense emotions; and Sant ji’s face looks so real! Buy black-and-white prints to enhance any room in your home.
Golden Temple – Meditations under the Moonlight
Bhagat’s spiritual painting depicts the radiant Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab, under the bright full moon and cool night sky. Amongst the hustle and bustle of the impatient crowd, there is one sikh who sits apart, in eternal patience.
Bhagat’s painting has taken sikh art to the next level with this piece. There is nothing else as beautiful as this painting showing the Sardar meditating in front of Darbar Sahib. Buy Golden Temple – Meditations under the Moonlight prints exclusively from Sikhi Art™.
Bhai Kanhaiya ji
Bhai Kanhaiya ji is famous for doing seva of injured soldiers by feeding them water and bandaging their wounds. He did not differentiate between Sikhs and Mughals. When asked why he served the Mughals, he responded that he saw the Guru in all beings.
The sikh art tradition has always depicted Bhai Kanhaiya ji in a battlefield, however sikh artist Bhagat Singh Bedi flips that concept and depicts Bhai Sahib’s internal state instead. Buy prints of Bhai Kanhaiya ji for inspiration to see the God, the Guru, and the Guardian, in everyone.
Dashmesh Pita – Guru Gobind Singh ji
In this painting, Dashmesh Pita reflects Akal Purakh’s light, the way the moon reflects the sun, and when we bathe in Guru Sahib’s warmth, we become warm ourselves.
Bhagat’s sikh art takes portraits to a whole new level. His painting of Guru Gobind Singh ji depicts spiritual enlightenment so powerfully, while at the same time, tapping into historical resources to show Guru ji’s turban and clothes as accurately as possible. Own this masterpiece by purchasing prints for your home.
Banda Singh ji Bahadur Avenges Chotte Sahibzadey
Bhagat’s epic painting depicts that epic moment when Baba Banda Singh ji Bahadur captures Wazir Khan with a group of Singhs. In order to bring Wazir Khan to justice, Baba ji punishes him for executing the Chotte Sahibzadey.
These two moments in sikh history have never been portrayed in sikh art of Punjab, and Bhagat captures the scene and delivers at an epic scale! Buy prints for inspiration to fight injustice and to teach your kids about these crucial events in all of the Khalsa’s struggles.
Guru Ram Das ji – Thirst for Hari
Guru Ram Das ji says, “My mind yearns so deeply for the vision of Hari, the way a thirsty man yearns for a drink of cool water.”
Sikh art tends to shy away from darkness and dark colours, where Bhagat’s sikh paintings embrace the darkness, and amplify it to emphasize the Supreme Light radiating from Guru sahibs. Buy prints for inspiration to meditate and develop a loving bond with the Inner Being, who is known as Hari ji.
Guru Arjun Dev ji
Bhagat’s painting shows Guru Arjan Dev ji peacefully meditating while being tortured. Guru Sahib was made to sit on a hot plate and had hot sand poured over his head and body. Even though he was put through immense pain, he was in profound peace with the moment, with the situation he found himself in.
Bhagat’s sikh art captures meditative moments really well. The artist himself meditates and promotes it in everything he does. So he is able to capture that exact moment when Guru ji entered meditation on the hot plate. Buy prints for inspiration to remember God, and to teach your children about that key event which transformed the Sikhs into total warrior-saints.
Harimandir Sahib ji
In Bhagat’s painting of the Golden Temple or Harmandir Sahib, he imagines what Shri Harimandir Sahib might have looked like before it was covered in gold and marble. Its humble origins are of mud and brick, surrounded only by a sacred pool (Amritsar), trees and wildlife as it has yet to develop into a large urban community.
Our sikh art tradition really lacks any depiction of the old Harmandir Sahib, however sikh artist Bhagat Singh has created this piece to bring that old structure to the forefront. Buy prints to enhance the atmosphere in your living room and your home.
Hari Singh ji Nalwa – First Edition
Hari Singh Nalwa was a great general of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s kingdom. At a young age, while on a hunting trip, he was attacked by a tiger. With his bare hands, he pushed back the tiger, drew his sword and decapitated the beast. He was known for his excellent swordsmanship and chivalry.

Baba ji radiates fury as he dispatches thieves and invaders from Afghanistan. Buy prints for you gym or workout area to derive inspiration form this powerful, elderly sikh saint and martyr.
Guru Nanak Dev ji – Shabad Vichar
Like all of Bhagat’s sikh art, his painting of Guru Nanak Dev ji has been painted differently than previous paintings of Guru ji. This sikh artist has shown Guru ji smiling while singing kirtan. Guru Nanak Dev ji is the embodiment of bliss; his smile represents that inner joy that is readily available to each of us.
Buy prints to inspire you to tap into that Ocean of Joy within yourself.
Akali Phula Singh ji
Akali Phula Singh ji was employed by Maharaj Ranjit Singh ji after his attack on Thomas Metcalfe’s escort at Amritsar in 1809. He commanded a force called Changari, “Sparks”. Akalis were known for speaking their minds and their daredevil courage.

After resisting the onslaught of the tyrannical governement, Guru Gobind Singh ji slipped into the forests of Machhiwara. It is said that Guru Sahib was still in the highest of spirits, in chardi kala, even after losing all his loved ones and devotees.

The details in this painting combined with the peaceful atmosphere, make it a great addition to any living room and study room.
Akali Nihang General
Early Sikh military history is dominated by the independent Nihang military order, particularly for many famous military victories. Nihang means fearless and ferocious. Neh – Without, Sang – Fear combines to Nihang, the Fearless One.

Battle of Chamkaur – Sahibzada Ajit Singh ji
As the day grew old, the Khalsa forces were running out of soldiers. At this point, Guru Gobind Singh’s eldest son, Baba Ajit Singh, at the age of 18, volunteered to join his fellow Khalsa in battle.

Guru Tegh bahadur ji
Hind di chadar Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji was previously known as Tyag Mal. However upon displaying martial prowess on the battlefield, came to be known as Tegh Bahadur, at young age. Later he resigned to small house in Bakala, where he meditated until he was discovered by Makhan Shah, and took the Gurgaddi after Guru Hari krishan ji.
Young Guru Nanak Dev ji
Gurus always said everyone follows faith blindly without understanding. So they tried to instill understanding in everyone. To the Gurus, hindus, muslims, christians, now sikhs, everybody was the same, they are all ignorant of God. That’s how the prophets also saw the people. Jesus said on the cross, “forgive them, Father, for they don’t know”. To the Gurus, no religion was a hurdle. It was ignorance of God that was the hurdle. That’s why the Gurus always focused on ignorance rather than religion.
Guru Hari Krishan ji
In 1661, Guru Hari Krishan ji received the gurgaddi from his father Guru Hari Rai ji, after his passing.
Guru Hari Krishan ji came to be known as the Bal Guru, child guru. At the age of 8 he passed away due to smallpox. Gurudwara Bala Sahib stands on the location of his cremation.
In this sketch, he is wearing the classic 17th century Dumalla, along with kalgi, chola and mala. On his cheeks, flows curls of hair. This is a typical depiction of Guru Hari Krishan ji and even young Guru Gobind Singh ji that is seen in the paintings of their times.
Guru Arjun Dev ji with Bhai Gur Das ji
In this sketch Guru Arjun Dev ji, with his scribe Bhai Gur Das ji, compiles the poems and teachings of various Indian mystics.
After the martyrdom of Guru Gobind Singh ji’s sons, Guru Sahib having no heir to the Gurgaddi passed the torch back to the granth that was compiled by his great grandfather, Guru Arjun Dev ji. From that moment on, this compilation of teachings came to be known as the Guru Granth Sahib.
Guru Nanak Dev ji – Flow with the Hukam
Guru Nanak Dev ji with Bhai Mardana ji and local villagers. In the spirit of my old painting of Guru Nanak Dev ji – Shabad Vichar
How can one realize the truth that all is impermanent?
By staying with the current of the eternal present moment one can recognize things for what they truly are.
What is the eternal present moment?
The eternal present moment cannot be stated, you can only be with it. But know that it is in the present moment in which things take form, in which living beings come to life, in which greatness is obtained, in which one becomes high or low, in which pleasure and pain is received. Everything is happening inside this eternal moment, there is nothing outside of it.
Baba Deep Singh ji
Baba Deep Singh ji sacrificed his life Hari Mandir Sahib, along with about 500 men he had gathered to defend the temple from Afghani invaders.
