The Source of My Art

Today, my work comes from my deep connection with the art of India. The emotions and experiences of being among the people in India blend my work with Indian contemporary impressionism and forms itself like tapestry, rich in color and tactile sensation.

I want to convey the depth and beauty of Indian culture within the primitive and stark Indian lifestyle. India and Indians way of life invigorates my spirit and infuses my art.

There were vibrant and heroic peoples took birth here in India, who's heritage and gracious way of life is now in peril.

Executed numerous murals and installation art work at various places:-

1. “ShilpGram” A craft village, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.

2. RSMML, Udaipur, Rajasthan, India.

3. Private at Udaipur, Jaipur, Amritsar, Chandigarh, New York.
