About Me

Life is a journey of self-realization and every individual, eventually finds his own path to proceed. Sunil Balkawade, a well-known young spiritual painter, from Pune; has found this path through his paintings that verily express his awakening to the Inner Light. Painting is much more than visual art to him; it has been his Sadhana. This journey has led him through the studies of Vedas, Upanishadas, Taoism, Yoga, and other philosophical treatise by great men like Ramkrishna Paramhansa, Swami Vivekanand, Osho Rajanish, Vimla Thakar & many more. Sunil has been known to paint with complete faith in his work as way of worship and he regards the rewards coming his way as Prasad for his work. The colorful blessings are showered by the divine spirit Sri Sri Ravishankarji (Founder Art of Living, Bangalore). The amazing Rangavali Paintings is a unique cultural attempt which today have crossed the valley of time and reached at Aras (France) to showcase the France-India Festival 2006-2007.  The soul looks, the mind unfolds  The search for the mystique begins  The brush rises, the colors glow  My paintings just happen  Golden is the path that knows  the Finite within the Infinite  Life is a journey of self-realization and every individual,  eventually finds his own path to proceed.  Sunil Balkawade, a well-known young  spiritual painter, from Pune, Maharashtra, India; has found this path through his paintings that verily express his awakening to the Inner Light.  Painting is much more than visual art to him; it has been his sadhana
