I remember feeling like my energy was somewhat depleted and I just wanted to feel alive.

I’d like to classify my work as a spontaneous kind of healing. Painting to me is like having a blunt and candid exchange with my soul about adversity and chaos of life. I find peace by expressing my thoughts and logical views about anything and everything through the use of colours, bold gestures, and different experimental approaches — making all the mundane things come to life. My works primarily talk about life itself. Who we are, and how are we affected by every thing that surrounds us. I don’t specifically follow one style, I don’t have any specific rules. I love the idea of free-flow painting. I don’t have any thing but my gut and instinct. I just paint and live in the moment. Whatever my soul tells me to create, no matter how complex that may be, I’d paint it. If I see a thread, a stick, a scrap cloth, a foil, I’d incorporate it with acrylic and start my storytelling from there. No matter how unlikely it may seemed, I don’t mind taking the risk. Each and everyone of us has a story to tell but some are too reluctant to even say a word. And that’s what my work is all about. To be free and be bold.
