I am 26 years old and I was born in Bhilai, the steel city of India, Chhattisgarh. From my early childhood I have learned to paint and draw, both as part of my school curriculum and out of my own passion. Living in a small but industrialised town in a lower middle-class family has helped me to observe the society at its core.
My forms are not abstract but their distortion represent my feeling towards that subject. I sometimes find myself revisiting the same object and turning them into different metaphors by changing the situations around it. Whatever I draw I do not exclude myself from it. I am part of the drawing. I am the one who narrates, I am also a character and, simultaneously, a listener. Sometimes, I feel like an old storyteller from the villages or a method actor experiencing life. I do not try to represent the problems around me as something external. I relate my life and how I see and face them in my work. Thus, my journey spans beyond me to all the human beings around spaces around me and, yet, it also remains personal.
