Some people claim Sikhs are Hindus, and some people claim Sikhs are not Hindus. My personal view is that we must rise above such things and realize the Eternal Truth and lead Truthful lives.
I had many experiences which lead to this view and that's why I started painting the Gods, Gurus and Guardians, in the first place.
I have always placed the "SikhiArt.com" watermark on all my artwork to link people to the site but over time I noticed that people find a "SikhiArt.com" watermark misleading when it is placed on art that covers a broader range of subjects, which many people consider to fall outside of Sikhism.
As my audience has grown significantly, this had lead to an increase in inflammatory remarks that I think I can prevent by simply adding a tag under the watermark on each image. Hopefully this will lead to better quality discussions in the comments section.
When you go to SikhiArt.com right now, you will see three main sections - Sikh Art (history of 10 gurus, warriors and saints), Divine Art (paintings of Gods, different faiths) and Fantasy Art (paintings of imaginary characters). It's not new, it's been like that since I started covering a broader range of subjects.
So I am going to start doing that on my social media pages as well. I will add "Sikh Art", "Divine Art" or "Fantasy Art", under the SikhiArt.com watermark, depending on the subject matter.
Everyone should know the source of the artwork - SikhiArt.com - but hopefully they will see that there is a broader range of subjects that are covered under the SikhiArt.com website.
