As per ancient Indian scriptures, the pineal gland is a grosser form of Agya Chakra, i.e., Third Eye and is responsible for concentration and creativity related to visual art, where creation is involved. Till the age 14 or so, pineal gland is active and fully functional. As the age advances, the pineal gland gets calcified and passes on control to the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the puberty in the children. That’s why most of the children are born artists, but they start losing their natural artistic ability as the age advances. There are many techniques, which can re-activate the Third Eye, and performing Visual Art is one of the techniques.

About Artist

I am Surinder Shanker Anand and I live in Chandigarh – the City Beautiful, situated in Northern India at Shivalik foothills. Since childhood, I was blessed with innate artistic abilities. As a kid, at the age 3, I used to draw on the cement floor using colored medicine tablets and chalks. Some of my childhood paintings was preserved by my Mom, which is part of my portfolio.

Art is meditation

Art is more of a happening, a meditation, where subject and object merge into each other, and one transcends the concept of time, space and unit. It’s amazing that this phenomenon takes place when the entity “i” is not present at all. Anyway, though I enjoy this creative happening, the manifestation may be enjoyed by others. During this journey, I have received innumerable awards, accolades and blessings.

My subject

My artistic expressions are engaged with the subjects related to humans portrait and body dynamics, nature and spirituality. I like to sketch using pencil, charcoal, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, oil and digital tool such as Wacom Cintiq Pen/Tablet, CorelPainter, CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Adobe Premier, 3D Max and ZBrush etc. to create digital artwork.
