The veil that Indian woman wears entered the imagination of Prem Singh. A woman clad in veil has all the firmness and sculpturesque grace. In addition the veil also manifests her nature that is not to reveal her 'self'. In a way it is also symbolic of the Indian womanhood.
Prem Singh painted the veiled women of Punjab for more than a decade. The 'cry' of the beloved Punjab in the eighties is no where better heard then in the drawings and paintings done by him. The work of this period is not only significant but gave Prem Singh a distinct identity in the world of art.
