About the Artist

Artist’s dialogue:

  • “This is an inner journey......a catalogue of my subconscious 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.
  • 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 / artist groups all over India & Singapore gives me immense pleasure. I believe in creating social impact through art & often associate with relevant social causes.
