While Padma Shri Krishn Kanhai mentioned that it was one of the best international exhibitions that he had been a part of. He, personally, was very satisfied with the response from his VIP collectors.
“For an artist, Art around the world is always fascinating. For me personally, art in the west and in India are the same as they are self-expressions on canvas. Both forms of art have so much technique and depth in style. However, I also acknowledge the cultural variations, which are the main differentiating factor between west and Indian art, but this only makes it all the more alluring to enjoy!” – states Padma Shri Krishn Kanhai
The limited edition paintings exhibited at the Award stem from an emotional interpretation that God resides in each one of us, and are portrayed on canvas using mixed media, 24-karat gold foil and oil paints. Judging by the interest in the paintings and subsequent sales, the exhibition was a hit with the Asian community, creating many new platforms for Treniq to collaborate with the Kanhai’s in future to bring to the art lovers in UK, unique and luxuriously one-of-a-kind paintings.
