Born on 26 May 1960 at Allahabad. M.A. ( Fine Arts). As I have observed in Life every one is born with some special talent. I was not any exception. No one in my family was an artist, although I came from a well educated family but I was very sensitive towards visual world and tried to copy the objects from nature because the existence of the objects around me intrigued me a lot. This is how my journey as an artist began. Later in my college, I opted for fine art as a subject in graduation where my Professor Bharat BhushanBhartiinspired me to do my POST GRADUATION in Fine arts (1981) . That became a foundation of my carrier as an artist and art teacher.|
Yes of course I am a full time artist apart from painting. I worked as an ArtsTeacher and retired as a Principal at last. I am teachingArts to the students because teaching is my passion from the very beginning and it remains so till today.
I am inspired by the works of Picasso, Dali and Edward munch and of course my Guru, Prof. Bharat BhushanBharti. Heis a versatile artist who inspired me a lot. I salute Indian painters SatishGujral, Gaytonde and Tayab Mehta.
Generally I paint in Abstract expressionistic style. Although as a teacher , I have to work in different mediums and Styles.
I keep trying different mediums like oil colours, acrylics and water colours. Now a days, I prefer to paint in the Acrylics.
During my college days my peers happened to be very talented and competitive which inspired me to be in the race. At the same time some other Tragicsituationsoccurred in my life which triggered many ideas in me which took shapes on the Canvas.
I find ideas from the life and situations around me. Any vulnerable social and political situations compel me to comment on the contemporary society.
Yes, generally I prefer to work in series.There are certain situations and ideas which impose themselves so much that it becomes hard to come out of them immediately. So it becomes a series of a particular style or idea to get rid from it. Then I switch over to random Subjects temporarily only to return to my main track.My series ‘UPSURGE’ is an example of that.
As I already told Teaching Art is my passion, Primarily I breath and live painting. A way of being with that I love Photography, Gardening, Music and Travelling.
