Painting is not just a means of self expressions it is more importantly a mode of communicating emotions and ideas; and by so exposing the viewer, eliciting similar responses in him. It is this conviction that prodded me, into the world of colours. My works are an invitation to the viewer to accompany me on a metaphysical journey to explore the truth of being, a pathless journey stretching the limits of human thought.
An amateur, self-taught painter, my experiments with colours began in 1985 while I was studying engineering and was largely inspired the study of philosophy. Painting became an essential part of my spiritual quest. My paintings display a range of philosophical and spiritual themes. While most of the works display the ideas of Zen, Greek, Tao and Indian philosophy, others try to recreate a mystical experience for the viewer. The use of symbols is prominent in my portrayal of highly evolved notions. I do not believe in making them too abstract as my main aim is to reach out to the people. This compels me to resort to a unique style of representationalism.
Being a relentless seeker, my quest is a quest for meaning and a style all my own to convey that meaning.
