Profile: “In reality Art is that expression of life, through which truth flows out spontaneously and there are varied mediums to express it. While on one side art is a manifestation of beauty on the other it’s a warning. It gently leaves a lasting impression on the mind. A writer expresses his perceptions of the society through words and the painter does the same through the creative use of colors, leaving unsaid feelings buried deep in his art…”
I started my career as a freelance painter in the realm of modern abstract art in Indian tradition. I have done series of paintings on the theme of Women, Musicians, Dances, Photo-Sessions, Mother and child, Women with a-parrot / bird / lamb), Human Relationships and Life-scapes. Paintings titled The girl, Fear, Insane, Hope, Life Insatiate, The last century, Lonely Voyager, Exploitation, Relaxation, Pain, She's, Three - Sisters, Solitude & Compositions, The Silence and Dissolution also from a part of my creative visual expressions.
I have been associated with this art which has matured during the last decade and half. Through the same art I have been depicting the inner upheavals experienced by my characters. It is these unique surroundings of flora & fauna and natural wonders depicted in my paintings which help me bring about the expressions of human relationships, human misery and the environment governing it as they have always inspired me. Inspirations for my expressions emerge around and within me.
My mix of colors is abstract and I bring about the levelness and the environment governing my characters at any given moment by mixing them with intimate thoughts and then depict them on the canvas. I try to express these through my own creative visual imagery. My style of painting is based on experimental studies in different medium. Oil, Water & Computer graphics become strong medium of the reflection of my vivid perception and understanding of managing human value to achieve individuality.
