About my painting:

About the artwork- As an Artist exploring places is a passion for me, I really find myself excited in exploring new places and discovering the beauty of nature. That is how the journey of my work begins doing artwork of place, architectures, cityscapes, peoples & more beautiful creation of nature. There is some kind of connection between me and nature that forced me to use bright and vibrant colours. Often I lose in the colours and mix them unreasonably to reflect my emotion and realization I have learned from my observation.
My paintings reflect the memories and experiences I have collected from the place, they give my truth a voice and reflect my most intimate history. Always thinking about different mediums I use to do artwork, Acrylic, watercolour, Charcoal mix media, a mixed media painting is one that combines different painting and drawing materials and methods and choosing different subjects. In my Contemporary painting Trees have a significant role in our culture, for they provide shade as well and cover and protect the surface of the earth. They have come to play a sacred role. In my painting Trees and Sun have a significant role in our culture, for they provide shade as well as cover and protect the surface of the earth.

Nature in art can take many visual forms, from photorealism to abstraction. Art can mimic nature, by seeking to visually replicate objects as they actually appear in real life. But abstract paintings can also take their visual cue from actual forms in nature, such as the painting below. This piece arose from the study, observation, and contemplation of natural phenomena and natural forms. When sitting at the easel, I used creative liberties to assign bright colors to detailed patterns that were inspired by what I had seen in my natural surroundings.
