In my new canvases the viewer would find the play of colours - gold, silver, copper, bronze and pearl - in as varied a manner as possible. Like the shine of the sun and the moonlit change the day and night into a spectrum of different emotions and feelings thus evoking a special mood, colour and music to each one of them. I try to evoke the same through the shine and sparkle of my colours. An organic feel of the silent activity of nature, intensive chirping of the birds in the low light of morning and evening, the transcendental music of light – all this and much more is an integral part of my creative quest. Light plays in my painting. And in this play the changing tones, textures, hues and shades create a Rãgmala of its own. And in the shine and sparkle of the Rãgmala, I not only experience my childhood but also the realisation of my own growth.

Views & Reviews

His paintings and drawings have a distinctive personal code, signature and style.

- Prof. Darshan Singh Maini

Cowled or shrouded heads or figures and squatting human forms – as are so much a part of the local visual environment, are one persistent ingredient of Prem Singh's paintings.Other elements are gateways – as front the average suburban home, sunflowers, window-bars, shapes or outlines of the universal loosely tied bundles. All this material is projected on canvas by the possessor of a hand and a mind that evidently likes directness, and simplicity of statement. States of expectancy or suspense are evoked by certain of the works, and yet the cowled emptiness does not become eerie. It remains this side of the ghostly.

- Keshav Malik, Art Critic, New Delhi, India

Prem Singh's palette evinces his deep understanding of the psychological value of his colours. This aids him in ‘loading' his paintings with an emotiveness. His colours are rich and evocative. While being figurative, his realism is of a different order. He would appear to be essentially striving towards the symbolical, even while allowing the mystique to creep in.

- S.I.Clerk, Art Critic, Bombay, India

Woman is the theme of the paintings of Prem Singh. They have a sense, a sacramental living and see profound dignity as well as beauty in the humble chores. The compositions quietly manage a monumental and symbolical quality and the handling of colour is especially sensitive.

- Krishna Chaitanya, Art Critic, New Delhi India

Prem Singh is the first realist with human concern in Punjab in recent years.

- Dr.Mulk Raj Anand, Writer & Art Historian, Bombay, India

What Prem Singh appears to express in his works is what he has seen with the eyes of his mind. For instance, in his earliest series of works, he has attempted to identify himself with Vincent Van Gogh. He has been searching a kinship to Van Gogh in his style and portrayed him as a haunting spirit in the midst of the environment; the master had painted – landscapes, interiors etc. These works are quite distinct. He has put literal titles to these small paintings, executed with a feeling for detail, which make them rather intriguing : “between Life and Death” expresses Van Gogh's feelings before he shot himself, “Master's Sunflowers”, show Van Gogh looking at the Sunflowers he had painted; or “The last Journey” depicting the mask - like face of Van Gogh hovering sadly at the corn-fields surrounded by flying crows; or the “Contemporaries” ( Van Gogh & Gauguin) represented by the chairs, pipe and the candle.
