Art & paintings are great in introducing children to Sikhi. As a kid, I had access to books which contained paintings of Guru Jis, 4 sahibzades & wars of Guru Saheb. Its a great way to bring Sikhi history & devotion to life.  Hope more people get inspired by Divine and create amazing art for the benefit of all.

What's interesting about the art in the Op is that I think the artist is a nonSikh?

^ yeah, i noticed that too, he looks south indian or so , yet he managed to capture the essence beautifully.

sometimes non-sikhs are able to see things in a way which we sikhs cannot.

Definitely agree that art is a great way to capture and introduce children, as well as teenages into Sikhi if they have not been interested in it before.

I find Instagram and social media a good way too.  There are so many images, and some with quotes, which can intrigue people.

Many non-Sikh photographers love capturing photos from Sikh weddings and the Gurudwaras because of the vivid colours and cultural essence there.

I think a lot of that is some form of exoticism though, especially from western Europeans.
