About Me

My subjects are basically as I see them through the lens of my hearts eyes. I have tried experimenting a lot with different forms and different mediums in my paintings. Whilst I went on with my experiments, making new styles and forms, my subject always revolved around human beings. Mixing Impressionism and Surrealism my canvas produced subjects dealing with life and people.
All my paintings have people wearing some headgear that has face painted on them. This depicts the double-faced nature of people. Like we see in most profession where one wears uniform, like Police, nurse, army, pope etc; one wears headgear to go with it as well. To me it is the depiction of the fact that we always wear a face that is different from the real one we have. It is like a face we have to put up to suit the personality we want to project which is always different from the real one.
