KANWAL DHALIWAL
THE PARITION

Seven decades after the Partition, an Indian-origin artist, settled in London, is shedding light on the suffering of women who bore the brunt of one of the darkest chapters of Indo-Pak history. Kanwal Dhaliwal, a graduate from Government College of Art, Chandigarh, with roots in Punjab, has created a series of painting in oils and acrylics, titled “The Partition”...In the The Carnage, an undivided Punjab is swept through by three stakeholders — Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs. On the top is the British Empire, as fields of gold and the glistening white cotton crop shows the prosperous Punjab of the time, waiting to be butchered. “It illustrates the death and decay of Punjab at the hands of not only the British but its own people who turned perpetrators,”- Divya Goyal, Indian Express.
