About Me

It all started one rainy morning when I was fascinated seeing sunlight peep in through the gap of a partly open door. It’s this fascination that led to my journey into a world of light, shadows, and objects that define ‘LifeCorner’.
The sun is the creative source, the unfettered creativity of nature. It’s the ultimate metaphor for imaginative creation. Light determines the seasons and light stands for enlightenment. The sun is the source of light, the generative energy of all life and change, the personified source of the imagination, while artificial light is a substitute for sunlight, even it play a substantial role in my paintings. Bringing the magic of both sources of light, my paintings reflect the persona, moods and thought-process of a person without showing a person. The observer is part of this creative process and allows him or her to draw their own conclusions.
