To be free means letting go of the carrying criticism known to stem from the outside world which is only poison to the mind. It refers to giving up being conscious of how one must appeal to critics. The only way to live is the way that is comforting. Painted text- The way is to let go.
I am a contemporary artist based in Mumbai, India. I create artwork combining photorealism with expressionism. My art spreads an awareness of the way sexuality integrates itself into the human conscience and how it plays a significant role in propelling it. It deals with human sexual instinct, its expression and its importance while redeeming the human from the oppression of conservatism.
I embrace to perpetuate the female figure into my art as my main component because female forms and shapes speak of the universal harmony I choose to represent. Often depicting her nude, I believe that recognition is only perceived and measured through the nakedness in her form.
My aim is to widen the spectrum of acceptability across societies by bringing back intimacy of the human instinct to allow the reinstatement of the consumption of its expressions. The intention of my work is to empower the demystification of divine love and administer a true perception of living through its insertion into the growing loopholes of the human conscience.
I was born in Mumbai, India. Art found me at age three and ever since grew a part of my voice initially through the mediums of drawing much before painting. I hold a bachelor degree in graphic design and find myself closely drawn to modern typefaces for the most part. I often toy with my typographical design influences by embedding them into my working style for certain projects to address core imports. I see design playing a pivotal role in the structural establisment of my artforms.
My artwork also focuses on evoking the emotions and stages of arousal prior to and post sex, giving emphasis to an allure embraced within the character of an individual, liberated by a correctly exercised mind. Upon my ongoing study of human behaviour of the modern time, I also place a focus on sensuality to reflect upon relative subjects. Upon completion, I brand each work an ideogram above my signature as a symbolic expression as to give it a unique identity.
