Anand Narain is a professional artist, an explorer of 'Untouched Nature' and 'The Spiritual Gold Banaras'. There is no peace or tranquillity in Anand Narain's Banaras. Not many realistic clues to point out any certain image. The whole scenario is in the artist's mind. The abstracted form is completely unlike what is seen by ordinary eye. He lives and works in New Delhi.
