About the work

My artwork comes from a parallel fantasy world I am building that explores social issues in reality, such as historical violence, as well as art history. This study depicts me as a spectral elven head with a castle sprouting at the top that is encountered by a small figure with a horse at the site of a broken bridge.

Career Highlights

Hardeep Pandhal has shown work in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including Midlands Art Centre (MAC), Birmingham (2025, forthcoming) and British Art Show 9 (2021 – 2022).

Pandhal was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2013, shortlisted for the Jarman Award in 2018 and received the Paul Hamlyn Award for Artists in 2021.

His work is in numerous collections, including those of the Arts Council, the British Council and the Gallery of Modern Art Glasgow.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
