Although Balesh Jindal is a professional doctor, she has been painting recreationally for the last 20 years. Her pieces have been a part of group and solo exhibitions abroad, including various cities in India. Jindal typically refrains from titling her pieces, as she feels that a name often restrains the unbridled emotion the work represents. However, she often attaches her pieces with a descriptive verse. Jindal’s paintings are often highly textured due to the application of palette knife. In this way, her pieces extend into the realm of sculpture. Her paintings are predominantly figurative, which she rationalizes with the words of Jean Paul Sartre: “Everything has been figured out, except how to live.”
