About Me

Ashok mullicks paintings include a strong focus on the ordinary person –particularly womankind and the contradictions it faces. The artist likes to portray the contemporary age where people have lost the human touch and have become increasingly impersonal in their behavior.
As a painter, he touches on these factors where customs are not being followed and the link between now and the past is getting hazy. Hes carved out a niche for himself with his juxtaposition of real and unreal imagery infusing his canvasses with bold, vibrant thoughts and certain energy, which is very appealing.
