Pita Kalu ji Holding Baby Nanak

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.

Guru Nanak – Shabad Vichar

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.

Guru Nanak Dev ji – Supper at Bhai Lalo ji’s House

Guru Nanak Dev ji – Supper at Bhai Lalo ji’s House

Guru Nanak Dev ji demonstrates that Bhai Lalo ji’s bread, earned through Responsible Actions and Meditation, is dripping with Milk. It nourishes everyone around Bhai Sahib, who bows to the Guru. Whereas the bread of Malik Bhago, earned through irresponsible actions, is dripping with Blood. It sucks the blood of those around Malik Bhago, who is looking shocked by the revelation. Standing behind Guru ji, Bhai Mardana ji watches the miracle in awe.

With this painting, Bhagat has went back in time and has captured the Puratan depiction of Guru Nanak Dev ji, mentioned in historical literature, and in the style of Italian artist Caravaggio. This painting depicts Guru ji illuminating the scene, in his original and unique appearance that we see in the Sikh Art tradition of 18th century Punjab. The painting grabs our attention and reminds us to perform Responsible Actions and Meditation, and embody Ram within.

Guru Amar Das ji – Langar Seva

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.

Bhagat’s unique painting has depicted Guru ji’s physically serving the people around him, the rich, the poor, and everything in the middle. Buy Guru Amar Das ji’s sikh art prints; they look beautiful in your living room or prayer room, and bring peace and tranquility. This piece is an inspiration for developing seva bhawana within.

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.


Fifth Guru – Guru Arjun Dev ji

Guru Arjun Dev ji – Spiritual Blossoming

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bhagat is a master of realism, and this painting is no different. It shows Guru Gobind Singh ji’s struggle realistically, through the atmosphere, the wounds and the torn clothes. The details in this painting combined with the peaceful atmosphere, make it a great addition to any living room and study room.
