About Artist

I am a self-taught artist. My father who was by profession a school teacher(Non-Art) was also an intent lover of ART and used to make drawing & painting to feed his own hunger. In my childhood days whenever I found my father making a painting in my home, I used to sit slightly back beside him silently and look seriously for long hours. There was a strong curiosity in me to see the whole work till it was completed. Although my father never taught me painting, as he had a fear of my involvement in art. He never wanted me to choose art as a career. He always insisted me to make my focus more on studies first. I was then good in studies as well. For career option I chose to study science, mathematics then followed technical/Engineering route but the interest and love for art remained constant. Due to many constraints, I was unable to bring myself to working mode. There was an instability in my mind that I was going away from something of my own. Constant interest converted into passion and I could not stop myself towards the journey of art despite facing so many obstruction and hurdles in my life. To me, art is not only a passion but is an inner journey towards pacifying the turbulence of emotions keeping the state of mind meditating, depicting the sound of mind and heart into visual form or language. As an artist, I want to develop many styles of my own. To speak about different emotions in self-developed different styles is I think an expansion rather than to speak in a single style.
