Artist Statement

My work revolves around subjects that matter to me the most. Conflict between urban and rural cultures, struggle of my Indian identity and a constant search of spiritual strength steer my visual expressions. My role is to witness this quest possessing a kind of wholeness with investigation, repetition and elimination of forms. Often I find photography and digital drawing as best mediums to reproduce those moments. I photograph as I walk, observe, think and feel shocked. Then I draw a logic between the real-movement and the virtual surface that allows viewers to observe multi-aspects discovery of surroundings. I negotiate and fight with myself and my relevantly irrelevant thoughts. I watch it from a distance when information passes through me.
