What does Jimmy Carter, Maya Angelo and Desmond Tuto have in common with the turbaned Man from Vindravan and the green eyed Girl from Pushkar? They all fall under the artistic scrutiny of the Bulgarian born artist Ross Rossin, who came as an immigrant to the US in 2001 and ended up painting Presidents and the Captains of Industry.
Rossin has devoted his life to uncovering the common ‘spirit’ in each one of us, regardless of race or religion, all entitled to the same human rights with no discrimination.
“In my work I study human nature. I'm interested in the Self Within - for the Self is Supreme, Whole and Absolute…. For me the human face is a bottomless source of inspiration and is the only way to go deeper and farther into my artistic quest for answers. I'm looking for the God's particle in each and every one of us. In that sense, I think that we all are One. One, with many faces.”Rossin’s new body of work from India will exhibit alongside the portraits of great statesmen and role models such as Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tuto, Maya Angelou amongst others.
In these very troubled times it is important to be reminded about the communality of Mankind.
