In private collections of various art collectors.
My grooming was never towards becoming a painter. But that phase
of my life imbibed me with enough teachings to see life from different
angle. I have seen life in its primitive form and have painted
my impression in my paintings.
After learning basic painting techniques in informal way, I started
doing experiments in my own way. Refining and refining the experiments,
I found my own technique and happiness.
My paintings show the scenes I experienced in my life, though
not in exact forms. My
works ooze out real life colors as they come from my heart and
not mere imagination. Every brick or piece of plaster or leaf
blade in the dilapidated houses. I drew have the history to talk
about though the future is evidently bleak. The cat sleeping with
dream of a fishy lunch also has a story to tell. The duck, with
broken form tells us about the fragileness of its life. This way,
each and every work is a piece of my soul and mind.
