I am from rural area of India. I like village life very much. I am working as painter from past ten years. Being a painter is very important for me because i want expresses myself through this medium.
My work is a way of expressing myself to the world. I have a sense of belongingness to the rustic and pastoral Indian lands. Furthermore, I reckon that the woman is the most magnificent creation of god. I draw women in extremely simplistic ways, which is in fact contradictory to their power and potential. In my perspective, there can be nothing remotely enthralling as that of a village woman. Through my paintings, I seek to bring out their inner beauty and charm. Drawing women and the rural Indian lands serve me with immense pleasure and joy.

The artmaking process often takes the maker into a journey within. The artist creates a
layered, heavily textured work here, representing a passionate moment of intense emotion - so intense that it is able to permanently charr, to consume and to forever leave an
impression. It is quiet heat- the one that is experieced in the aftermath of a raging fire. This work is part of the series - “If Walls Could Speak”.
