About the Artist :
Nawal Kishore lives and breathes his art. His art is full of expression, thoughts, emotions, and feelings that cannot be expressed comfortably in a world full of conventional beliefs. His paintings are more about one's inner quest, about the search of one's own Buddha; one's journey from within. A state of inner bliss where nothing exists but the quest.
