Curator's Eye

Having studied with traditional Chinese painters in the Himalayas, Prasad Beaven creates bewitching, atmospheric watercolours inspired by ancient compositional and aesthetic painting techniques. Instantly evident is a sacred respect for the natural world, conveying the majestic beauty of earth and trees, and the dappled lucidity of the sky through his spontaneous, en plein air painting practice.

I was inspired by the way the tree grew out of the darkness towards the light, yet even in the darkest parts the light shone on it to guide the way.
