Let's get to know the life mirror of painter Samat Bella ........

Mr. Samatbhai Laxmanbhai Bella, who made a name for himself in the world of painting in a very short time, was born on 26 February 1981 in Kalyanpur, an inland village in the Dwarika area.  Born into a farming family, Samatbhai was brought up under the umbrella of his father Lakhmanbhai and mother Ramiben.
             Samatbhai completed his primary education in Jamkalyanpur.  His childhood was like an extraordinary child.  He was in a state of insanity for three days after accidentally eating cannabis seeds at the age of five.  I think even the madness of childhood can be seen in his paintings even today.  As a child, he was very weak in studies. He failed in Std. 1 to 8. Even during the study, he was surprised when other students were reading the picture faster, while Samatbhai was spending hours reading a letter.  Even in such a weak situation he did not leave the study.  Samatbhai is very focused in his work.  Level 7 suddenly took a big turn in his life.  It was beyond the comprehension of his teachers that the child had learned seventh grade reading and came first in grade 8.  As a child, he had a hard time understanding the language of the teacher, today he becomes a teacher himself and teaches children.  He completed his secondary education at Shri KK Davda High School at Jamkalyanpur.  Going further, he completed his higher secondary education in a small village like Rawal and completed his CPED at Valsad.  He is then working as a teacher in a government school at Haripar, a small village near Jamkalyanpur.  Even today he is as instinctive and funny as a small child.
         Samat Bhai did not inherit the art of painting and had no contact with any of the great painters in the area where he was born.  Even so, his desire to learn painting led him to become an accomplished artist.  Spontaneous paintings have crossed the borders of the country today.
         Samatbhai draws his picture on canvas through oil.  Pictures that are liked at first glance seem to be just now spoken, also called a living picture style.  He is currently working on two picture series.  One is "Rangdhara of Saurashtra" and the other is "Krishnamaya".  Both of their series are very popular.
              Rangdhara of Saurashtra is a series based on the rural life of Saurashtra region of Gujarat.  Made the rural folk life of Gujarat a center of attraction all over the world through a painting.  The pictures of old people, children, women and animals seen in his paintings are full of price.
          Samatbhai travels to many inland villages of Saurashtra to create the Rangdhara series of Saurashtra.  He has done a noble job of painting a picture of the people living in many diverse areas like Gir forests, Barda Dungar, dry areas of Okha.  Samatbhai considers it his art duty to bring the unique folk life of Gujarat to the forefront of the world when it is struggling against the geographical conditions.
         In the Krishnamaya series, Samatbhai has created pictures revealing the prices of how people live in Krishnamaya.  Samatbhai's paintings clearly show that he is a deep Krishna lover.  His devotion to Krishna is evident in his paintings.  And each picture is not only beautiful but also expressive.  Today Krishnamaya's paintings have become very popular among Indians living abroad.  Even today Samatbhai lives a normal life as a teacher in the village.  But impressed by his art, people from home and abroad come to meet him.  Foreigners from countries like Switzerland, Norway, America have come to visit them in a small village.
      Art is used for the upliftment of society and not for weeping.  The "artist" who uses the art only to make a living and the "artisan" in the interest of the society. Samatbhai has helped many students financially in higher education with the help of his art.  As well as selflessly helping people who are broken by economic problems, he has truly embodied painting.  He is also doing well as a teacher in the interest of the society.
         So far, a total of 30 paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally.  His paintings have been exhibited in most cities of India.  These include Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Surat, Indore (Madhya Pradesh), Calcutta, Vadodara, Jodhpur (Rajasthan), Rajkot, Jamnagar.  As well as international cities such as Singapore and New York.  Samatbhai's collection of paintings is also available in cities like America and London.
           Samatbhai, an artisan, has been honored with letters of commendation by many organizations.  His paintings were also honored by former Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Anandibahen Patel.  So far, Samatbhai has been honored with several national and international awards in the field of painting. In 2017, he was honored with National Awards at Jodhpur, Rajasthan and Indore, Madhya Pradesh, and in 2019, he was honored with Best Artist at the International Art Fair at Vadodara.  He is also entitled to special honors like "Ahir Ratan" by Ahir Samaj.  He was also declared as an "icon" of Devbhoomi Dwarka by the Election Commission in the 2019 Assembly elections.
         Samatbhai, who lives far away from human medicine and loves solitude, enjoys the rural folk life in his leisure time and tries to present his folk life to the society through his painting art.  Samatbhai has done a noble job of cultivating rural culture through his paintings.  His aim is to make everyone living in the country and abroad respect the heritage of Indian rural life .Because he believes that one day a village in traditional dress will remain in his paintings.
