Painting Beggar Portraits,
their hungry truth and inner beauty.
How do you deal with the beggars, when you are in India?
I paint them.
Compare, if you are encouraged, pages of Beggars and Sadhus. Both of them have nothing, but the nothing can be very different.
Nothing of beggar is a misery. Nothing of Sadhu is on the verge of infinity.
I try to paint beggar who has cut off hands. Maybe his parents did it in preparation for the profession: cripple inspires more pity, has a chance for more donations.
I do not trust reality of the world in which I live. It's just a terrible dream from which one needs to wake up.
They have clear attitude to life. They know the law of karma: no one would think of to complain about his fate. They believe that their current suffering will bring a significant improvement in living conditions in the next incarnation.
