Deepa Khanna Sobti

Deepa Khanna Sobti is a Singaporean national of Indian origin. She has no formal education in art or philosophy. She has an MBA degree with a finance major but gave up a decade long career in banking in 2000.

She began painting in 1999 and starting writing poetry in 2012. She writes an original poem for each painting that she makes and both are exhibited together. Overall, her art and poetry make a strong suggestion to the viewer to investigate their present experience to realize what reality really is. And to see that the world as it is currently understood, is merely a relative imaginary construct comprising mainly of thought. And that even within that thought construct, there is no separation between the individual and the world he inhabits. And to pave the way for the 'Everything' and the 'Nothing' to shine through the mind. This is the reason my website is called www.emptinessisfull.com
