About the Artist
With the rural back ground I have, pencil drawings and paintings of my earlier days reflected color and form. I painted what I saw and Inspired me. Rustic men, women, animals, flora and fauna, love, joys and sorrows. My compositions were created with keen observation and clear vision depicting human drudgery, traditions and customs, fairs and festivals.
As I grew up , I have enlarged my vision to a wider canvas to do contemporary subjects. . Some of the distinctive features my works have are:
i) use of a range of primary colors as I identified my paintings with colour.
ii) Reflecting the body of work figurative in nature with semi-abstract minimal forms.
iii) Creating a Series of paintings on any theme rather than one single work.
My own style and technique over a period was the result of experimentation in form, colour and concept depending on subject.
During the last 45 years , I did 2500 paintings and held 21 one-man shows. My paintings are in the collection of several international dignitaries and institutions. I won a number of Awards both nationally and internationally.I REQUEST YOU MAY PLEASE BUY SOME AND ENCOURAGE ME.
