Salman Khan describes his art on display:
Still In Hope of Compassion: “There are wars. There is loss. There are pandemics to deal with. But there is also HOPE. And Mother Teresa tells us no matter what the odds, HOPE will always win.”
Begging for Peace: “Peace is not just an absence of conflict. Peace is the humility of two folded hands. The acknowledgement of our humanity. And the purpose of our life.” A huge admirer of Mother Teresa, Salman Khan seems to have dedicated his beautiful talent to her by making a portrait of her. He further added, “I like to say it with my films. With the stories that I tell. With the songs that I sing. With the dialogues that I deliver. And sometimes, I like saying it with colour and a blank canvas”.
His art was first showcased in Google Arts and Culture in February 2021 on the launch of Sandeep and Gitanjali Maini Foundation.
Khan works with canvas, acrylic and oil paints as well as charcoal and ink. Most of his paintings are huge that are more than 5 feet high.
