Ghulam Rasool Santosh was a part of the Progressive Artist Association in Srinagar and later trained under N.S. Bendre at Baroda University. It is said that Santosh's yatra to Amarnath in the 60's gave him a new language , a new poetry in his art - that of tantra. He continued with his explorations in tantric art till the nineties. The canvas below is from his earlier abstraction period and therefore scarce !
