Joined Craft Tatva: June 2021

“It is more important to ‘read’ a painting, rather than merely ‘see’ it.”In my paintings I have depicted the deeply rooted symbols and techniques of spirituality which is very powerful, hidden and the silent mood of texture and formed space. The qualities gained from the elemental lines can be related to various moods thus the painting talks to those who are good observers, its takes us to heaven, inner heaven, inner Space of who they seek. I always work using oil colours which have been used in this one too. I created my own brushes to match my expectations and to get the right textures I wanted, which has been a great help to make it more attractive… My works were mostly “UNTITLED “. I didn’t want to condition people to view the painting in a particular way by giving them a TITLE.

Focus Areas: Spiritual
