Born in India, Sandhu immigrated to Canada in 1990. In 2002, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in nursing. Always interested in art, he took a watercolour painting course in 2004 that changed his life. With a young family of 3 children, Sandhu painted whenever he could. In 2009, he became an active member in the Federation of Canadian Artists and decided to dedicate himself to fully developing his artistic talent.
Watercolour is a complex and challenging medium. The softness and atmospheric qualities appeal to Sandhu. “It reminds me to let go and just be. When I paint, I become fearless, which allows me to look at life from a different perspective.” With subjects ranging from city scenes to marinas, landscapes and lone figures, Sandhu relishes each opportunity to render life’s unique moments.
In 2011, Sandhu won the “Best in Show” award at the Sidney Fine Art Show. In the spring of 2011, he won an “Award of Excellence” at the FCA show. In the FCA’s fall 2011 show, he earned an Honourable Mention”. He is an artist to keep an eye on as his talent continues to develop.
