About the Artist
I cherish my roots to Chhattisgarh – where semi-arid jungles, native tribes, rural rustic Villages, industrial suburbs, and small towns create a landscape full of colors, culture, and life. I have spent most of my childhood near wildernesses where I had a rare opportunity to experience nature at its best. My childhood vacations were spent with my grandparents in their villages where life is immersed in the colors of the rural culture, traditions and mythological symbolism.
My Medium and Style:
I prefer working with acrylic on stretched canvas. I also experiment with the mixed medium on paper and watercolors and Ink.
Life is a flow. It flows through time. It flows through places and spaces. It flows through emotions and experiences. Most important of all – it flows through many other lives. Life has ups and downs which are inevitable. It has a natural flow of its own which is asymmetrical and indefinable to conform with. We cannot control everything that comes through our life but we can rejoice different moments if we go by the flow.
My work reflects on this complex and vivid human experience utilizing abstract forms accentuated with figurative motifs.
