Pratiksha Apurv's solo exhibition of paintings was opened at Punjab Kala Bhawan, Chandigarh on April 08, 2013. The exhibition was inaugurated by the Hon'ble Governor Shri Shivraj Patil. Famous Punjabi Folk and Sufi singer Hans Raj Hans was also present during the event.

Niece and disciple of Osho , Pratiksha was born in Gadarwara, Madhya Pradesh, and was initiated into neo-sannyas at the age of 11. This is her first exhibition in Chandigarh after 9 solo shows across the country. Her paintings, famously known as meditative art, are the expressions of her experiences of meditation. "Whatever I paint is the outcome of my meditation. When you meditate, you have that feeling of connectivity with self and there is peace that comes from within and is then painted on the canvas”, says Pratiksha.

In the span of last 6 years, her collections of paintings – “Spiritual Odyssey” and “Reflection” attempted to revive the meditative art with advance visualization, spiritual perspective and treatment of characters. Each of the work is a product of well thought process which emanates from her space in deep meditation. “Osho is in my blood, genes and my being. That is the truth. There is no doubt it helps me

understand and to approach the subject of meditative art with a different perspective,” she says.

The exhibition concluded on April 14, 2013.
