About Me

I am an Abstract Painter & Lecturer at J. J. Institute of Applied Art Mumbai. I always wish to express myself through my art and people enjoy my expression. There is a large group of admirers and collectors of my work in India & abroad. I believe, The most simple is the best. I am from a small village of Maharashtra State, India and now I am in metro city, so the amalgams of nature and city life are mirrored in my work … As a child I loved visiting rivers and was fascinated by the reflection of shallow water, trees, the textures of wood, stones and leaves. These developed into frames of reference and manifest themselves as windows and boxes in my work… As every painting gives me pleasure, so does the medium. Each medium keeps on encouraging me to explore and experiment. All my paintings have given me sublime satisfaction of creation. The feeling of immense joy, which I have experienced, I hope to offer the same to the viewer.
