Himachal’s cultural treasure on canvas, expressed in colors


Creativity at par Excellence, Mere words can’t express

Thousands saw the Apple fall, but it was only Newton who propounded the theory underlying the same. Similarly, thousands of artists and painters may be busy beautifying the world with their creative and colourful brush, but it is really for the first time that I felt it necessary to unleash a talented artist though this article just because his works left me spellbound and speechless leaving a lifelong impression on my mind and I want the entire world to witness this creativity at par excellence.

In the land of hills, greenery, clouds and nature, where our mother nature motivates us towards the way of life , way of breath and the way of art . Worshipping almighty is a way to get fruitful blessings, which is what exactly happened to a young creative soul who used to worship art since childhood.

Here we portray the creativity of a young talented lad from the Queen of Hills, “Nikhil Bansal”. For Nikhil, ART is LIFE. Nikhil is a versatile artist beginning from 10 years of age. He started receiving his formal training at 12 years of age under the mentorship of his Guruji, Sh. Om Prakash Sujanpuri.

Nikhil lives in Shimla, and is a young & talented freelance artist, who loves to paint. He is a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts (BFA) with specialization in painting, murals, and printmaking from Kurukshetra University. He loves nature, greenery and every incredible scene that the nature has created. He also loves to recycle old junk into art and that adds him to the list of eco-conscious artists.

Nikhil has also done a Diploma in Kangra miniature painting under NZCC. He has also attended a couple of special courses on Tanjore and Mysore paintings.
Nikhil’s painting has been displayed in a number of painting exhibitions both, solo and group, organized by various institutes and organizations of state and national fame. He has also participated in quite a good number of painting workshops on miniature paintings.

His work was highly appreciated in a solo exhibition put up at Shimla in 2008 when he was just 16 years. He has been awarded with many National Awards and his art works have been sold in India, UK & Australia.

His versatility is his biggest strength. He plays with different styles, forms & textures, rightly depicted by attached photographs.

Nikhil (popularly known as Nik Hill) is presently living & working in Shimla. Himachal Watcher wishes his all the very best for his future endeavors and hopes that he would soon attain international fame making Devbhoomi Himachal proud.
