Recently I had the chance to visit Satinder Sartaaj’s home in Mohali during the shoot of my TV Show Ki Haal Chaal hai. While we had break from shooting I had a guided tour of his home by Sartaaj himself. I had always deduced that Satinder Sartaaj had artistic inclinations, not just towards music and singing, but also towards other art forms like sculpting, painting and drawing. One look inside his home, confirmed that deduction.
He told me that he gets presented a lot of drawings and portraits of himself by artists around the world and he cherishes them all and has collected all the artworks in his home. He said that he has too many of them and at one moment all of them can’t be displayed at his home and so after a month or two he changes the artworks on display with the new ones and keeps this rotation going alternatively. That makes his home more or less a thematic art gallery, the theme being he, himself.
The collection of his portraits consists of artworks in Traditional medium consisting of pencils, oil and water colors. Recently he had also received a digital painting of himself. Other than that, he also has his self portraits in the mediums of itching, carving and one piece in Typography. Other than that Sartaaj also commissioned a number of art works for his collection including the famous art drawing of Sartaaj at the feet of Gurdas Maan, which is on on permanent display, quite understandably.
Even I have drawn two portraits of Satinder Sartaaj in pencils and plan to gift them to Sartaaj, so that they become part of his collection as well.

The design of Sarpech is also put above the house’s first floor. It illuminates at night.
