"Last month,the director of Delhi's National Gallery of Modern Art,Rajeev Lochan,inaugurated an exhibition of paintings by Indian diplomat Abhay Kumar at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in Delhi. The exhibition was titled We Have Come Far,and addressed issues relating to the environment and spirituality...Being a diplomat feeds into my artwork because I travel a lot and that makes me aware of global issues that get channeled into my works, says Kumar,whose paintings lean toward abstraction while trying to capture the cosmic beauty of the earth through geometric forms and colours. I'm also a poet and a writer and I feel all these aspects of my life work together in a synergistic way, says Kumar,who has also displayed his works in Paris and St Petersburg." -- Georginia Maddox A Second Life, Indian Express (7 May 2011)
