SiriOm Singh is a self- taught artist living and creating in Trenton, NJ.
Born in White Plains NY, growing up in Philadelphia, living in North Carolina, Texas and Florida, and now in Trenton NJ, and traveling often to the Middle East in the last 15 years, have exposed SiriOm to different landscapes, light conditions, experiences, beliefs and human connections. It broadened his visual horizons and affected his technique, use of color and subject matter. Being involved with many different cultures opened his eyes to see the sameness in all.
In 1999 SiriOm’s life took a turn into a focused spiritual practice and a life style of a yoga practitioner. This transition, and his commitment to peace in the world has had a powerful impact on his work, which he sees as a representation of the divine in our life, and a statement on the impact of humanity and nature on each other.
All images in SiriOm’s art are portraits, whether they are trees, flowers, buildings or landscapes. They are all a representation of humanity- our need to plant ourselves solidly in the world, to relate to other elements and beings around us, to create structures that have a personality, become living things and serve as a testament to how we care for our world.
SiriOm Singh sees himself as an abstract expressionist. He uses acrylic and collage applying layering techniques, primarily with pallet knife, to create images that are intended to help the viewer experience inner peace, love and unity with the divine, with humanity and with the world.
