About the Artist



I was born in a little village. Green grass and muddy water roads was my companion. I grew up with the scent of mud and stunning natural beauty all around my childhood. And that is my source of inspiration.
In my works I tried to focus on reflection of God’s creation and gradually I became an admirer of beauty and art.
The from of art is constant. An artist makes it static in his work and there is a hidden succulent path behind that creation. An artist has to be very keen to draw out that infinite path before his audience and only then the art becomes immaculate.
First I thought art only speak about beauty but on my painted voyage I slowly learned it can be horrified as well.
Love, pain, joy, sorrow, accident, incident and sometimes altogether can be art.
Hurdle and failures are my recipe of art and these made me a better artist. Human right offence, abuse of children and women makes me we want to cry. Horrid incidents make me want to scream. Too much religion makes me worried. Nuclear war in the name of peace makes me want to shout. People without self-conscious makes me wonder
I always try to express these feelings through my works.
Machines took over our lives and eventually everyone’s depended. It seems like now-a-days we become machines as well. I tried to express my inner feelings about that issue more often.
I work with different types of mediums. Oil, water, acrylic, ink, pastel, I use all of these repeatedly in my works. But I’m most comfortable in oil paintings. Other than that I like to make art with acrylic and pencil charcoal more often.
I am very grateful to those who help me make through this journey. I am very fortunate to have them all along my path. I hope they will do that in future and make another successful voyage someday real soon.
