“Painting is another way of keeping a Diary” – Pablo Picasso. A quote that has an influence on all my paintings! The quick and easy availability of information at the click of a button has not only changed the way we live but also our relationships. The Dairy of my life is filled with experiences of such evolving relationships between men and women, which I portray through my works.
Since childhood, I have always been passionate about figurative works. With passage of time and experience, my style has evolved into powerful imagery. I use perfect symmetrical forms like squares, rectangles, checks and butterflies to cover my human figures thereby symbolizing the strive for constant improvement and perfection of the contemporary human race.
My paintings portray the relationships of the 21st century men and women, their emotions and chemistry. They manifest and exemplify the kind of complete freedom exercised by both genders, in the present times.
Each of my works involve a lot of iterations and white board sketching till I finally arrive at the desired composition that conveys the story I want to narrate.
For the last decade, I have worked out of my studio, portraying the subjects of my paintings from everyday experiences of my own, acquaintances and even strangers and depicting them in a contemporary manner. My style is very fresh and has been profoundly appreciated and accepted not only in India but also internationally.
Over the years, my Shows in India and Overseas have received tremendous appreciation and have been very successful. I have steadily established myself within the Indian and International Art Market. My works have featured in various newspaper articles and many of them have been sold to renowned private collectors and interior designers in India and Internationally.
I see myself as a bold artist of the present and future era. I am inspired by artists like Michelangelo, Van Gogh, Dale, Picasso, Amrita Shergil, Anjoli Ela Menon and so many others.
