About Artist

I am always astonished about emergence of ART and how it all started and originated. What may be the very idea of that “FIRST MAN” who sketches on the cave walls with stain in order to express his excitement of his finest discoveries. I believe ART evolved closely with mankind it gave us an intellectual ability which made us what we are today not only in order to survive but made our life simple and entirely glorious. I always want to experience that frailness and tenderness of doing new things and discoveries. Want to experience the cave man feeling while doing his very first master piece and also enjoy them for my entire life.

ART is a very prime knowledge observed in human species though other animals have zillion of hunting and problem solving techniques but art is very unique in we humans it is the factor which changed the game of evolution. I believe we need more and more artistic ideas rather than usual things to tackle contemporary problems.

I want to educate and invest my potential to make more artistic reforms I am also working to fuse primitive techniques into modern art and lifestyle I travelled many places within India, visited many historic places and cultural hotspots to capture its soul and spectacular beauty and I want to mimic their technique with modern tools and technique.

Art is decentralising and becoming less influential I would like to play my vision and role efficiently in restoring its pride. I like to bring balance with my artistic moves

I always like to discover new things and concur new dimension of art forms as of the first primate artist did.
