Chandra Bal
Short Introduction on artist and teacher Chandra Bal

Master Chandra Bal taught Harish Johari the wash painting technique, which Harish later developed into his own Harish Johari Wash Painting Tradition.

In this sense master Chandra Bal lies at the basis of the technique used in most paintings shown on the Sanatan Society websites. He learned the wash painting technique from Shri Bhawani Prasad Mittal, who learned it at Shanti Niketan.

Together with Harish, Chandra Bal personally taught many of the artists presented on this website, such as Pieter Weltevrede, Sandeep Johari, Suresh Johari, Sapna Johari, among many others. For most of his life, he taught painting in his own private school in Bareilly - India. The school is still being run by his son Prabhat Bal, who himself is also a very gifted artist of whom we will show work on this website soon.

Master Chandra Bal left his body on the 15th of June 2002.
