Source of inspiration and expression
My initial inspiration in my formative years were greatly influenced by the impressionist painters especially Vincent Van Gogh and the abstractionist Paul Klee. My intense connection with nature which gets transposed into my abstract work is a result of my involvement with the subject as an artist my everyday life, travels and surrounding influences become a subject of my work. Colour texture form and most versatile medium of oil become my tools towards creating a unique language of my own to express myself. Besides, my grandmother who lived till the age of 90 was extremely hardworking and active till her last breath. Her basic values of honesty, hard work and dedication has been imbibed in me, she was another of the inspirations of my life. Art is about what you are and I feel that the canvas should be the mirror of an artist.
