Sakti Burman's paintings seem to occupy a world of their own, suspended between the spheres of myth and reality. He has often been called an "alchemist of dreams" and through his canvases, the viewer unwittingly enters the realm of the fantastic. His works are a reflection of his own experiences blending Indian cultural sensibilities with an international aesthetic.
"Sakti Burman's spirit is one in which poetical and interior meditation, harmonies of sounds and his dreams and reflections mingle together and form an image full of color, fantasy, designs, variety, fragments of stories and at the same time, an invitation to silent, discreet and joyous contemplation of the realities.
(I Pel. Luc Calvero, Sakti Burman, Paris, 1984)
