Minimalism & Bindu Art

Sat Chit Ananda
20x20x1.5″ each acrylic on stretched canvas

These bindu paintings beautifully express the ancient wisdom of India as found in the Upanishads or the end of the Vedas. We exist as consciousness in an unchanging state of eternal bliss. This is what we truly are. Only when the fluctuations of the mind cease do we experience the stillness of being and infinite bliss. The black dot or bindu symbolizes Oneness as it is experienced in our deepest core, the ‘unknown’, the fullness, purnatva, of all there is.

These bindu paintings are available as a triptych (all 3) or individually and may be arranged in a variety of ways to please your taste.


This art is termed ‘Minimalism’ in the West but known by the term ‘Bindu Art’ in South Asia. The most famous artist being SH Raza who to his last day a few years ago painted the Bindu and the Five Elements, a repeated theme for many years.

I am passionate about Indian yellow as shown in this painting. Paired with orange, it makes for a vibrant, uplifting, and energetic mix. Seen here are the inner and outer worlds. Both can be exciting but the inner lasts and has an impact on us that can change the direction of our life. This vibrant painting has the blessing of ‘Be Blissful’ handwritten in golden letters in the lower portion of it. The upper portion shows a 2-colored bindu of Oneness.


Minimalism was an art movement in the 1960’s and 1970’s in the USA. New and older artists moved toward geometric abstraction. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum showcased in 1966 Geometric abstraction in the American art world via Shaped canvas, Color Field, and Hard-edge painting. In the wake of those exhibitions and a few others the art movement called minimal art emerged.

Blue and white are the colors of Greece from its national flag to the houses of Santorini. In this minimalism painting blue symbolizes the ocean while yellow stands for the sunshine I experienced while vacationing on Crete, the largest of the Greek islands.
