The visual world of human creativity is constantly in a state of flux, more so in the realm of painting. There is an eternal quest for the new in terms of theme, expression, style and trend. There is never a final pavilion nor a final destination for the clan of artists. I believe in movement and in keeping the environment dynamic and ‘contemporary’ always. Our new generation keeps trying out something different all the time thereby drawing the art lover to their canvases again and again with renewed interest.

I belong to this new clan of young artists striving to make the mark in the big bad world of contemporary art. The most interesting aspects of my work is that it is constantly evolving, moving from one theme to another, trying out different styles, experimenting with application of colour and attempting a whole new overall impact. A healthy discontentment backed by a self belief pushes me on into new horizons.

I am from Balasore, a small town in Odisha, India, I believe in modest, unassuming and easy to get along with. After graduating in fine arts from BK College of Arts and Crafts, Bhubaneswar in year 2000, I went on to Delhi & later completed my MFA in Fine arts as well as M.Phil in History of art from Dr. BR Ambedkar University, Agra. I have done my Ph.D in Fine arts from MGCGV, Chitrakoot in year 2014.

Right from my student days journey so far has been marked by struggle at a personal as well as creative level. I keep my constant keen observation towards the contemporary scenario, I worked hard at my sketches and canvases to give shape to my own concepts of form and colour, from an early involvement with realistic rendering, I gradually moved into abstraction, experimenting with laying of patches of interacting colours with different themes. However, the aspect of abstraction slowly moved to the background while forms and shapes started taking the center stage in my later works. The early realism has come back into my work in the form of surrealistic expression laced by a style of flat and bold application of colour that makes my paintings loom into compelling view.

In my words, “I am a full time creative artist, who believes that painting is the expression of one’s inner vision. The vision opens and guides my eyes to the shapes, tones, colors around me and their eternal relationship with the interplay of light that creates a sensation. I paint because I wish to respond and communicate the society to this sensation. I get inclined towards figurative shapes and colour tones rendered in surrealistic style in a contemporary trend with different mediums and brushstrokes for my paintings. Mostly I like to paint human figures against an abstract & flat background for visual aesthetics. The aspect of tension and release in life around us interests me deeply and I pick my subjects from socio-living relationships”.

I pursue a professional career as an artist. I reside in Delhi and works at my own studio in Gautam Nagar. There is a constant quest in the artistic persona of me that will never let me grow stale. Art world may fairly expect plenty of contribution from creative artists in times to come.

    The service of Mojarto is very smooth, user-friendly. Entire process from uploading the image of an artwork to selling it is hassle free and effortless. The Mojarto team is also very helpful, cooperative and always ready to support in any kinds of difficulties. The website not only showcases artworks of renowned artists but gives scope for budding artists also which I appreciate very much. I wish Mojarto team all the best and a very bright future ahead.
