Artist’s dialogue:

  • This is an inner journey......a catalogue of my sub-conscious being & what it infers on the spiritual plane of my daily life. Sometimes my artistic expressions are decoded months after paintings have been made.
  • I believe art is a very powerful medium of communication and all arts whether visual or performing can impact a generation & reflect the ideologies of that particular era.
  • During the global lockdown of nations due to the raging Covid 19 pandemic (2020), it has been observed that all art forms have been a great leveller for individuals to bond & connect virtually. This deep connection can only be attained when the arts are given a serious role in the development of society.
  • My artworks reflect & resonate a third dimension which the audience perceives, as they attempt to unravel my themes.
  • My colour palette is bright with varied hues & I believe that if an artist is intrinsically blithe then the artwork created by that artist can create an aura of positivity around it !
  • Collaborating with like-minded gallerists & curators internationally is an exciting way for me to connect with art lovers worldwide. I believe in creating social impact through art & often associate with relevant social causes which are charity based & aim to make a difference in society.
