His Journey


Year of 1980 he was born in village Ghudani Kalan, Punjab, India where he grew up at a farmhouse in middle of the fields spanning acres, chirping birds, long wisps of clouds, sublime sunrises and sunsets. Oh what a sight they offered to him. Nature, the art of God gave him his first artistic and profound experience.This created a very humble background, which led Harminder from a very young age to form an unbreakable bond with Mother Nature, by acquiring warmth and nourishment like a baby attains love and tender care from his mother. In 1991, due to wrong medication while typhoid's treatment, Harminder had a paralytic attack on the right side of his body. He was bed-ridden for three years. When every treatment failed to cure him, he treated himself with his own grit. "I used to do extensive exercise. Gradually, I started to walk with support and then I started gym. My right hand was numb, it had no sensation, but I didn't give up. With the help and support of my father I started to walk with support. My elder brother died in an accident when he was 26, my family was heartbroken. I couldn't see them in pain. Although my paralytic attack has left my speach unclear. I am very thankful that I am healthy and doing something that feeds my soul." Harminder says in an article written by La Blend Magazine.

Living in the lap of nature, while doing agricultural farming with his own hands, carrying on with the dream of his father and fulfilling his own.The seed of art was embedded into the heart and soul of Harminder, the seed that would soon grow into a rich, prosperous, tree that would provide comfort and solace to all the travelers who would come under its shade. The spark of a new passion was first ignited by Harminder’s music teacher, Mrs Manoneet Kalsi at Gobindgarh Public College (Punjab, INDIA). The burning passion and the raw talent was remarkably chiseled and polished by two master renowned painter and sculptor - Mrs. Karuna Mohindra of Tac Academy of Fine Arts and Jaswinder Singh Mehndi Pur. Harminder saw his purpose in life, which is to create rare masterpieces made with sheer determination, zeal and flair.
