All my paintings have people wearing some headgear that has a face painted on them. This depicts the double-faced nature of people. Like we see in most profession where one wears uniform, like a policeman, a nurse, an army personnel or the Pope. One wears headgear to go with it as well. To me it is the depiction of the fact that we always wear a face that is different from the real one we have. It is like a face we have to put up to suit the personality we want to project which is always different
from the real one.

For the past 25 years, acrylic colour has been the main medium for my paintings. After doing the line drawing on paper or canvas, a layer of acrylic is used like tempera on it. Then slowly the subjects and people are given shape using more layers of colour. Since I use fast colour, it gives a definite brightness to the figures. My figures have a definite inspiration from Egyptian paintings, thus the figures are drawn in the same form, the clothes that they wear have long lines making them look taller and in a way Egyptian. Most of my paintings are on 42½ x 48½ size which takes about 100 hours.

My paintings, in a way are people I live with. They give me inspiration to produce more, to experiment more and thus to create my own world with them. It’s my world that I want the world to see.

    A sublime piece of art with eye catching Modigliani like stylized figures submerged in creating music. The colours, expressions and the light really bring the music and the sheer focus of the musicians to the fore and make it a part of our realm. A very happy painting by a tremendously talented artist. An extremely smooth and pleasant experience of buying art along with a prompt and safe delivery. This was our first time buying art from India online and we are definitely impressed. - Darshana Shanbhag

    Beautiful works!!! Much better than I expected them to be. Highly pleased with the services. I placed the order on Monday and had to fly back to the UK next Thursday. The team made sure that it reached asap before date. From buying to shipping to receiving, they were on their toes to keep us updated about every step taken. Good Job! I am happy to take them along with me. - Stuti Kaul

    The red colour of the painting caught my attention. Loved the artist’s taste of colour palette. Bright red background with blue window and tiny little kites with the boy in white on the right. Utilization of space and balance in the composition is wonderfully set. The experience with Indian Art Collectors has been really good. It was so fast, smooth and delivery was prompt. Would recommend it strongly. - Niti Dixit
