I was 5 years old when I received my first prize in a drawing competition and I have been obsessed with painting since then. I became an architect, did courses in landscape designing, interiors but did not let go of my first love - art. Though I am passionately involved in my art , my background as an architect helps me tremendously in terms of colour, form, textures, balance and proportion.
For me, art is the conscience arrangement of our mysterious imagination. My work is motivated by my experiences . I love painting and what I enjoy about it is the creation. I pour my emotions in the paintings. Painting is my communication tool. My works are spontaneous reactions to feelings and I use contrast, bold colours to express.
I never plan a drawing about a particular subject. My sketchbook is my closest ally. A germ of an idea takes place in my mind and becomes breathtakingly stimulated as I take that idea, sketch it ,put it on canvas or paper and watch it reveal itself to me and through my art. I improvise on my theme, on my imagination until I bring it to a climax. As I apply paint I use vibrant colors and textures that beg to be touched. I paint until I have created a work I find exhilarating, a work which the viewer can relate and derive pleasure from. My artwork speaks for itself. I think this is why my original paintings radiate so much energy and life and are a source of joy and inspiration to those who acquire them.
I am a globe trotter. So, my work tends to focus on the nature, environment, human nature and even architecture. I have explored and worked with different mediums and techniques but what gives me immense satisfaction is oils and acrylics. The smooth glide of brush over canvas or paper gives me happiness.
My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience but I've always admired and has been inspired by great artists like S.H.Raza, Laxman Shreshtha, Marc Rothko, Piet Mondrian, Picasso.
The more my mind absorbs and develops, it becomes more contemplative and meditative. It reflects in my artwork too. My work continues to evolve.
