A few basic features about these works:

Calligraphy on handmade paper.

Every piece is original handmade.

Unique Scriptures appearance - Medium is Handmade Egyptian Papyrus paper with antique manuscript looks written with ink dip nibs with special ink. 

Verses originate from Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the foundation of Sikh religion and created with deep devotion.

Apart from calligraphy, I am proud to design and present IK ONKAR in an unconventional form. It happened when an ardent devotee asked me to write 'IK ONKAR' in a way 'that the viewer should get absorbed in the thought of oneness'  I could deliver this project with ultimate humility.

 

Gurbani Calligraphy by Ranjit Singh Pun.

The artist grew up in an environment cognizant of rich heritage of Gurbani Hymns and Vedic Chants. Passion to emulate the ancient scriptures in their original appearance resulted in a unique style of calligraphy.     

Ancient rishis and ascetics used taadpatra (skin of a tree) to inscribe the scriptures. The pen used was a quill and the ink derived from vegetation. These scriptures still treasure the archives in various temples and museums all over.

Closest alternative to taadpatra is antique look handmade art paper generally used for artwork. The quill gets replaced by antique dip nib pens.

Such penmanship is MEDITATION. It needs focus, concentration, and practice. Takes a while to fine tune the flow on art paper. Once honed, you don’t want to write everything.

Attunement guides to select your works. Just a reach to the ones who feel HIM. It is a minuscule endeavor to reproduce what was feathered on taadpatra. The ultimate heritage of hymns contained in the Gurbani is yours in form of our calligraphy.

And beyond! The works are vast, production is limited; we hope to satiate the seekers.
