Krishen khanna
 
Born in 1925 in what is now Faislabad in Pakistan. Krishen Khanna one of the leading Indian contemporary artist chose to paint figurative style of works, mostly drawn on memories of Indian – Pakistan division.. 

 Bordering on the narrative, Khanna’s work captures moments in history, much like photographs do, but the artist’s technique is far from photo-realist. Khanna transfers his observations onto the canvas with spontaneity and exuberance, keeping the representational elements of his subject matter intact.
