I have been painting for as long as I can remember. Even before I knew it was called art . From the moment I first held a pencil in my hand , I started doodling , much to the exasperation of my parents and teachers. I would draw on anything and everything , from blank papers , walls , newspapers , sand and of course sketch books also at times , when provided. So it was a natural progression to join the art college and learn the fine nuances of the craft . And thus started the colourful journey of my life.
From the first solo show itself , I have followed my heart and painted whatever inspired me to take up the colors and splash them on the canvases , conveying my very own individualistic expression. I have always been drawn to powerful forms , strong lines , sweeping brush strokes , and bold , vibrant colors. Freedom and spontaneity have been important to me in my personal life as well and therefore animate all my paintings too.
A constant fascination with the performing arts lead me to begin the still ongoing endeavour of translating the ever evolving movements , rhythm , and sound onto my canvases. My contemporary application and sensibilities combined with this hugely complex and all encompassing subject lead to a style of painting that bridged the gap between figurative and abstract art. The energy of my pigments convey a primitive force and energy of cheerful optimism that i myself feel .
My art is not a social critique of our times , as I strongly feel that i am artist and my language ought to be simple and forthright enough for everybody to understand and relate to , rather than just being read and applauded by a few art critics only.
