In Celtic culture, witnessing a black horse often meant an omen of darker forces and even death. The horse depicted in the Colour of Speed 1 painting is actively running away from something while turning his head back to look it in the eye as he does so. Adding onto Celtic beliefs, this horse was also a representation of the ability to possess the maturity and the strength needed to tackle life's obstacles, and this is what is being conveyed in this striking painting. Representing stamina, speed, communication and power, this horse is a force to be reckoned with.


Nivas Kanhere is an artist who was born and raised in Kumbhej. Without much help as a child, Nivas Kanhere did his best to create art with no instruction. This led him to develop a unique style in his youth until he went on to study in Abhinav Art College Pune as well as Sir J.J. School of Art in Mumbai. Since then, this artist has learned to express himself in a way that offers his work his own unique fingerprint. He expresses his love of life through his art, using some of his favorite symbolism in almost every piece. This symbolism includes bulls, horses, buffalos and more.
