THE SHINE JOURNAL

Flash Literature, Poetry, Art and Photography!

New Works being positioned in the gallery soon...

 

 

Please welcome RAVI BEDI as the Artist in Residence (AIR) for 2008. His works have appeared in The Shine Journal before and show a range of artistry that is very exciting.  RAVI, who is also a writer, insists that he has no classical training in art which makes his work even more astounding. In addition to this gallery, you may visit the archives to see more of his wonderful artwork.

 

RAVI BEDI  is a retired engineer from the Indian Air Force and is a self-taught artist painting in oils for the last 40 years. His heart has always been into creative pursuits: painting, sculpture, and music. He paints what he sees around him in his own way. Colors and the enormous beauty of nature fascinate him.

 

Now blissfully retired and settled in the historic city of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, RAVI dabbles in painting and writing. Nothing satisfies him more than creating something beautiful on the canvas or out of clay… or on the Yamaha when he is in the right mood. His works are mostly with private collectors…and in his basement!

 A Town In Rajasthan

Oil on paper -- 21 x 27 in

Clutter of houses with colorful facades, when people did not have fences, and believed in community living. Citizens mingled with each other freely, just like their houses.

City At Night

A tired city at rest on a dark night, with the bright moon hovering in the blue sky, promising new hopes for yet another busy day.

 

 

Cityscape

Cityscape

Oil on paper -- 27 x 32 in

Interiors of a typical city, predominantly white, seen from a bird’s eye. Cluttered, and huddled together, with space and privacy on premium.
