    Watch Gujarat’s hidden gem, Kamal Kanti Rana, burn up the TV screen with his incredible art, this Monday, 8PM

    The world-renowned Spanish artist Pablo Picasso once famously said, “inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” One wonders what he would say to Vadodara’s Kamal Kanti Rana, who found inspiration in fire and worked incredibly hard to create masterpieces with its flames.

    HistoryTV18’s super-successful series, ‘OMG! Yeh Mera India’ serves up fascinating curiosities, exceptional talent, and modern-day wonders, with a dash of the strange and unusual.

    The next episode of this series, airing this Monday at 8 PM, features the 62-year-old self-taught artist from Vadodara. He has developed as many as 35 techniques in fire painting, which has found him recognition in many national and international record books, including the Limca Book of Records and the Asia Book of Records.

    Kamal Kanti Rana’s fire painting is different from other forms of art, mainly in the tools it uses. Instead of paints, he uses inflammable chemicals, matches, and flames to create the play of dark and light with different textures, depths, shapes, and highlights in his artwork. The paper, too, is specially treated to withstand high temperatures. It is the painter’s incredible skill in controlling fire itself that determines how pale or deep any shades in the painting will be.

    Kamal Kanti Rana has even created the world’s longest fire painting, measuring 63 feet in length and 7 feet in width.
