ABOUT THE ARTIST
I do figurative works, the medium used is Acrylic on Paper or Canvas, Charcoal and Ink/Pen Drawings. My works are Bright and color used is direct from the pallet. Enjoy doing bright and colorful works for which I usually choose my theme and subject which has more naturally bright objects colors like the costumes wore by the persons, their possessions, ornaments they carry, their belongings, and the surroundings where they live and spend most of the time. As an Artist, it makes my work unique from others and the Subject chosen is very interesting for me. In this series of Fortune Teller/Yogis/Fakirs, they are the persons I usually see them around the temples, Dargah and pilgrim places. Maximum time they spend near these places and are very interesting subjects for me to portray them and compose them in my canvas. I consider them as they are the people of God living under the shelter of god always seen in and around these places, where people hardly go in this busy generation time.
