My art practice goes back to my rich cultural heritage and the place from which I belong, a journey to my Indian background. I come from the city of Varanasi, which is one of the oldest inhabited cities of the world, which modern scholars believe it to be around 3,000 years old.
I am a self-taught visual artist of Canadian- Indian origin, my work are mostly abstract textured paintings. I use mixed medium to work on my art, and try to experiment with different mediums.
My work explores the human emotions, different state of mind, Science, society, life and its expression through Spirituality and its culture.
My art draws strongly on the complexity of heritage and assumed norms that are referenced from memories, history, literature and continuous thirst for finding peace. I consider myself a philosopher, a cultural anthropologist, and spiritualist, cataloguing and processing these experiences.
I also find myself attracted to the astronomy, and the unending thirst of finding the beginnings of myself whether through science or spiritualism. My work often depicts the merger of science and mysticism.
My heritage and the history has been at the center of my consciousness. Through abstraction and pattern, The Feeling within and the Lotus Mandala examines the concepts and experience of unity consciousness both metaphysically and symbolically. The Lotus Mandala portraits, our rise from the material world through meditation and merges itself into the Spiritual universe. The lotus represents us. The different colors of blue, brown, red and yellow with golden used with the work to evoke multiple layers and meanings.
Through art, I want to express myself, which cannot be described in words.
