Des Pardes

ਦੇਸ ਪਰਦੇਸ (Des Pardes) is an homage to the Punjabi generations that came to Brampton. This artwork painted onto a traditional ਘੜਾ (earthenware clay pot) symbolizes the ways in which Brampton radiates with Punjabi culture and how it has been passed down generations. Community gathering areas like the ਸੱਥ (sath) are seen through Brampton parks. Traditions like learning to tie a turban or sew are passed down through generations and farming is kept sacred through our food. The paintings represent important aspects of the Punjabi culture which transcend overseas as a part of their new life.
