visual art

Ars longa, vita brevis – art is long, life is short 

There is no clear definition to describe art. It is humanly impossible to create that magic statement which will describe art in a sentence. But, one description that remotely comes close to define the meaning of art – can be found in Leo Tolstoy’s “What is Art? (1856)” – “… In order to correctly define art, it is necessary, first of all, to cease to consider it as a means to pleasure and to consider it as one of the conditions of human life.”

Art for me is a journey of instincts; and my surroundings – the catalyst. My works have evolved with me over time, like my conscience  – expressing my emotions that I verbally cannot sometimes.

It is an experience, not only to the producer, but to the observer as well – transporting them, even for a fraction of a moment, to experience not only the aesthetic appeal but also the purity of the emotions underneath.

Tribal and folk art were major influences to my working style; subtlety of which can still be found in my current contemporary productions.  However, I’m now experimenting with different art techniques and mediums – heavily inspired by international artists such as Rabindranath Tagore, Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and Madhav Satavalekar.

Art is not what or how, it just is.

While canvas painting is my forte, I’m also technically proficient in etching (metals), woodcut, lino cut, silk screen, drawing (charcoal, pencil, crow quill) and various other painting techniques (oil, watercolour and acrylic) 

Posted below are some of my selected art works I’ve created over the years, hope you like it.
