Satish Gujral

Leonardo da Vinci of India
(1925 – 2020)
New York Times in paying homage to Indian painter, sculptor, and architect Satish Gujral (1925-2020), described him as “Leonardo da Vinci of India” for expressing his u nderstanding of silence & its echoes through his art in various mediums.
Born in Jhelum in pre-partition Punjab in 1925, he overcame the turbulent early years – an illness due to which he lost his hearing – which left a deep and empathetic impact on his artistic expression.
The man who was “trapped in stillness” beat all odds of hearing impairment to garner national & international recognition for his creativity through paintings, graphics, murals, sculpture & architecture. He was honored with “Padma Vibhushan” second-highest civilian award of the Republic of India, in 1999.
The man whose expression of “quietude” spanned nearly 70 years, passed away peacefully on March 26, 2020. He was 94. Condoling his death, The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi wrote, “Satish Gujral ji was versatile and multifaceted. He was admired for his creativity as well as the determination with which he overcame adversity.”
