Background: Inspired by a family of art teachers, I started on the route for painting at childhood. I won some school competitions. As a kid, I saw my father do fabric paintings, but I liked oils and acrylics that allowed eye catching expressions. I was always inspired and intrigued by worldly events, issues, beauty, horror, inhumanity, love, pride, and any emotional characteristics shown by my characters. This leads to putting an idea together and an art form is born.

Education: I am a self taught artist. I started with some background in color mixing and layer techniques from a Master Artist. I have found painting as a medium to connect with organizations that are working on issues close to my heart. I plan to donate a good portion of my sales to these organizations. If you like any of my work, do drop me a line about it. Do mention your interests and anything specific you would like to see on canvas.

Mediums: I like working with Acrylics and Oil paints. I am good at sketches as well but have kept those for myself (not for sale, I am too attached to details that I bring out in sketches)

Painting Philosophy: I see painting as a strong medium to say what I want. I think of events and characters like a maze that come together at certain places and certain moments to form an eye catching, attention grabbing event. This event, if matched by my emotion, is put on the canvas.

Styles: Since some of my paintings are based on observations, I specialize in modern and contemporary artwork. I am very intrigued by Mosaics. Many of my existing and upcoming paintings will include abstract, symbolism, figurative, landscape and fine arts.
