About The Artwork

The inspiration in my works – comes from more than just strokes on canvas; they're a reflection of how I perceive life – as a quest for beauty and dreams that I wish to achieve. Each piece is an exploration of the human desire for paradise. It's about seeking a utopia of beauty in our everyday existence. - we struggle to seek peace of mind. In this captivating portrait, I've sought to capture the essence of a graceful female subject through the delicate nuances of her side profile. The eyes, lowered with a touch of mystery, invite the viewer into a world of contemplation and introspection. Her fair complexion is a canvas for the interplay of light and shadow, seamlessly blending with the calm yet dramatic skies in the background. The striking red feather earring adorning her ear serves as a bold statement, symbolizing passion, vitality, and a connection to the deeper currents of life. A yellow cadmium scarf, elegantly tied around her sleek neckline, becomes a vivid stroke against the subdued tones, accentuating the beauty of her neck and shoulders. The interplay of dark, flowing hair adds a timeless allure to the composition. Together, these elements weave a narrative of sophistication and intrigue, inviting art collectors to immerse themselves in the subtle yet powerful story told by this evocative portrayal.

As an artist, I draw from a rich background steeped in tradition and artistic exploration. Graduating from the prestigious National College of Arts, the oldest art institute in the subcontinent, in 2007, I embarked on a journey fueled by a deep appreciation for fine art. My early exposure to traditional techniques of painting and finishing classical French interior products ignited a passion for the old masters and their mastery of form and expression. This fascination guided me towards the study of portraiture, where I delved into the intricate details of anatomy and figurative art. My artistic process is deeply personal, rooted in introspection and observation of life's nuances. As a silent individual, painting serves as my voice, allowing me to articulate my innermost feelings and experiences on canvas or paper. Whether capturing the grace of an animal or the complexity of the human form, my focus remains on portraying anatomy and figurative elements with precision and emotion. Before commencing any work, I meticulously sketch my concepts to refine my understanding and ensure accuracy in proportions. Drawing inspiration from my surroundings and personal documentation, I seamlessly integrate references into my compositions, infusing them with a unique narrative and perspective. For me, art transcends mere representation; it is a medium through which I convey emotions and evoke visceral responses. Each painting is imbued with a story, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in a world of subtle light shifts and harmonious color palettes. Central to my artistic philosophy is the belief in creating meaningful connections through my work. I strive to elicit genuine emotional responses, allowing viewers to engage with my art on a profound level beyond commercial considerations or biases. In addition to focusing on conceptual depth, I prioritize the quality of my materials. From crafting my own stretcher bars with traditional joinery to selecting premium-grade paints and archival paper, I ensure that each artwork meets the highest standards of craftsmanship. While my work is undoubtedly influenced by the classical academic style, I constantly innovate to infuse it with a contemporary sensibility. Born in the '80s, I embrace my role as a contemporary artist, blending tradition with modernity to offer viewers a fresh and original visual experience.
