Barnabas Indias work reveals a blending of the boundaries between reality and fantasy. At the beginning of his career he never commented on his works of art, but later he composed lyrical and surreal writings about his paintings, which for India portrayed precise descriptions of nature phenomena seen in the mountains of his homeland.[nbsp]
India never felt comfortable in the capital city of Papua New Guinea. In 1978, his yearning for home drove him back to his native village in the Simbai Valley. With this move his work was stopped and nobody ever heard of Barnabas India again. His art, however, is still present.
