Bishamber Khanna | Biography | Life | Artworks
Enamelling probably originated in Western Asia and was used in ancient times to decorate pottery. The Greeks, in the fifth century BC, seem to have been the first to fuse enamel on metal, the form in which we know the art today.
In the course of history many peoples, in the West and the Far East, produced distinguished work in varying techniques such as cloisonne, champleve, base taille, Limoges and grisaille.
In more modern times, an influential movement originated in Vienna around 1929, and more recently artists and craftsmen the world over, particularly in the USA and France, have revived the art of enamelling for individual creative application.
Bishamber, experimenting with a painstaking technique for over two decades, has discovered the infinite aesthetic scope of the enamel medium.
Controlled form and colour are cleverly combined with accidental effects of vaporous forms and colours created in the process of firing at temperatures ranging from 1400’F to 1600’F, in two to four min- utes.
The abstract compositions, designed in a contemporary approach, are enjoyable for their form, design and colour values creating an effect of calm and serenity.
Besides the innumerable small-sized enamel paintings, Bishamber has created enamel panels to architectural scale and concept.
