Artists' statement:

"The possibilities for innovation and creativity in the field of art are endless. Ever since the humanity blessed with ability to think, they have been striving hard to look beyond the horizon in quest of unknown. Art world is not an exception especially in a place like India where ancient civilisation, heritage enriched by its diverse culture, tradition, customs and religion. It provides boundless opportunities for the artistic eye.

There has been everlasting endeavour to capture this richness by many in various art forms. Having born amid this richness and abundance, I have obviously incorporated these essences in my art work. Through my artistic vision, I have attempted to depict rural culture of India with a hope of preventing it from going into oblivion or rejuvenate if it is perishing.

In addition to following the path laid by our art gurus, I strongly believe that every artist should have his/her own identity, creativity and social concern. I specialise in Acrylic painting on Canvas Media. Majority of my artwork reflects the day to day life, custom and culture of rural folk of India with a special focus on Karnataka (one of the states in southern India) where I born and brought-up. The primary theme of my paintings prominently visible and the background gradually leads towards the invisible. Finally it appears that there is a harmonious interplay of visible with invisible leading to infinity. Over a period of time I have cultivated my own unique techniques of brush stroke and knife stroke which have paved way for speed and rhythm eventually merged in harmony. Use of vibrant colours is an attempt to truly reflect the original nature of the subject.

In summary I have put my sincere effort to showcase the exuberant and glory of rich diverse Indian rural culture through my artistic eye."
