International multicultural artist Rajinder Singh’s
portfolio of large format paintings and illustrations exhibit a fresh
new style of the abstract narrative genre. Rajinder has devoted his life
and his art to the unassailable phenomena of the ‘number-fingers’ as
they grapple for a ruled victory over the analog.

Rajinder’s extensive background in mathematics and art
are the driving force behind his successful art practice. “I brainstorm
about the mysteries, mechanics and mathematics of life and the universal
rule of nature thru my art.” This, along with his international
upbringing, shapes the core message he delivers thru his meticulously
crafted paintings. Rajinder will be exhibiting his paintings in New
York, France, Malaysia, Argentina,Singapore, Korea and India between now
and June 2008.
