Artist Statement
My work is holistic, combining the old with the new, printmaking with painting, narrative with abstract and big with small. My initial work experience as a bill board painter and a desire to remain rooted but at the same time open to external influences seems to have helped me find firm grounding for my work. I find signs of Om and Sri to have a universal relevance and like to enrich my paper and canvas with these and other tantric icons. some of my work is in large format and others in small size. I like the challenge of small paintings as they require a disciplined mind and control on technique. For me painting is Brahmanand, the ultimate joy that I like to indulge in.
