‘The Bhagavad Gita, the interrelation between art worlds’ by Dr.Tatjana Burzanović amazes readers with unique artistic depictions of the great ancient epic, The Bhagavad Gita. Thrilled by the messages of the Gita, the author has made beautiful paintings in a way that one can simply read, think, and feel what was told by Shri Krishna. Her paintings are a philosophical play of composition, color, contrast, third dimension, structure, texture, proportion, rhythm, and dynamics. These paintings are a part of her PhD thesis and it deals with the simultaneous and successive art using the illustrations of the Bhagavad Gita, in 18 chapters, where each chapter has two versions.
“The present work by Dr.Tatjana Burzanović is a unique, visual, literary and philosophical depiction of the message of the Bhagavad Gita. Dr.Burzanovic’s pictorial illustrations of the themes of the Bhagavad Gita are informed by a lifelong scholarly interest, and her very distinctive artistic sensibility.”
