Suresh Chandra Johri, 1942 - 2000, married with 3 children, was
a born artist. He sculpted and painted since his early childhood
with his elder brother, late Shree Harish
Although his paintings traveled abroad, Suresh
Chandra Johri himself never left India but worked as an Engineer
at Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd in Haridwar up to his early demise.
He opened his own art school in Haridwar
and used to display his artwork at many exhibitions.
All his life Suresh Chandra Johri was fascinated
by Lord Krishna
and painted him. The scetches and concept of the new book "The
Life of Krishna" were made by him. Due to his sudden and
severe illness he was not able to paint out the composition himself,
but together with his brother, late Harish Johari, he guided Pieter
Weltevrede in completing this project. Suresh Chandra Johri
left his body five months after the paintings were completed.
