With an introduction by
Senator Richard G. Lugar, R-Indiana

“His style has been influenced by the Old Masters. He presents his subjects in close-up, highlighting detail and splendor, challenging the viewer to explore the spirit of the building’s original creators. Sensuality of line, texture, landscaping and intricate architectural details, interesting spatial arrangements, script as an integral element in design and an intensity of line and form are hallmarks of the Singh artwork.”– American Artists Magazine
