In this illustrated memoir the reader is treated to an epic saga covering seven decades and three continents about an artist s dream for a more peaceful world.

The eldest son of a prominent family living in the foothills of the Himalayas, Jamali experienced the horrors of war through the Indian Partition, which led him to pursue a life of peace through art on a prolific scale producing more than 40,000 original works to date.

The complex surfaces and mystical imagery found in Jamali s paintings have been compared to the neo-expressionists Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz.

His gestural techniques link him to Jackson Pollock and the New York School.

But the pre-eminent art critic Donald Kuspit observed that Jamali s singular method required its own name Mystical Expressionism.

One hundred artworks individually selected by the artist accompany the engaging text in a separate section beautifully printed on a specially coated paper.

Similar to Gandhi who advocated change through non-violent measures Jamali hopes to change our lives by sharing his story of art and peace.
