During her visit from Germany, on a sunny afternoon of Wednesday, 8th August 2018 Jai Kaur Bhamra held her first exhibition of abstract water colour paintings at the prestigious Arts and Business College of London. Accompanying Jai was her father Jaswinder Singh Bhamra, uncle Amarjeet-Singh Bhamra and Dr Mahesh Mathpati, a close family friend.
She was warmly received by Jane Jia, the curator who was immensely happy to have Jai and her work displayed at her gallery. She encouraged Jai to keep producing further work of knowledgeable integrity. Jai is influenced by the anthroposophical line of thought initiated by the philosopher Rudolf Steiner. Having attended a Waldorf School in Germany, Jai has been exposed to arts and crafts from a young age. Besides water colour paintings, she has a keen interest in textiles and fabrics aswell as felting. Upon careful observation, all pieces of art express her zest for life despite being of special needs (mental and speech impairment).
The exhibition came as a surprise to Jai and her family, as her work was chosen to be exhibited at the gallery in order to celebrate and acknowledge her achievements and further encourage her progress, particularly keeping in mind her medical history of doctors having predicted that she will never be able to walk, talk and have control over her muscles when she was born.
Jai and her family were overjoyed and moved to have been given this opportunity by the gallery and will never forget this meaningful day.
