Journey as an Artist
Q. When was it that you first thought about making this your profession? Did you have a role model to emulate or was there someone in your family who was an artist and therefore a big influence?
A. It was 1995, when I got National level exposure first time in New Delhi for participation in All India Cartoon and Caricature exhibition and contest. I received National level award for this event. Then finally to earn bread and butter, I proceeded further in this profession. No one is an artist in my family. Not influenced from anyone and neither have any role model.
Q. How interested are you in social and political issues? Have these at any point in time influenced your art practice?
A. I am not much aware about these issues. But yes, the spiritual domain surrounding the multitude of mankind is indeed my source of inspiration. Most importantly, it is my unwavering conviction that every individual is imbued with extensive diversity and collectively their restive striven attitude applies to me greatly. At this juncture, all those voices, emotions, joys and sorrows are the driving force for me and provide me a prologue to my work.
Q. Which themes have you enjoyed working on in your career so far? What kind of work you see yourself doing in the future?
A. I would like to exhibit Indian imagery blended with vedic meditation and precept of control connecting the individual souls with the UNIVERSAL spirit. My present focus is on the spiritual and cultural aspects of Indian society. I know not what my next painting would be and what kind of work it would be. However, all day long I love to sketch and create compositions which lead me on to the canvas and I follow. For me ART is divine and I try to Express this philosophy through my canvases.
