It all started one rainy morning when I was fascinated seeing sunlight peep in through the gap of a partly open door. It’s this fascination that led to my journey into a world of light, shadows, and objects that define ‘Life Corner’.
The sun is the creative source, the unfettered creativity of nature. It’s the ultimate metaphor for imaginative creation. Light determines the seasons and light stands for enlightenment. The sun is the source of light, the generative energy of all life and change, the personified source of the imagination, while artificial light is a substitute for sunlight, even it play a substantial role in my paintings. Bringing the magic of both sources of light, my paintings reflect the persona, moods and thought-process of a person without showing a person. The observer is part of this creative process and allows him or her to draw their own conclusions.
The play of light; the chair you occupy; the work you do, the topi (cap), Rubik-cube … all come together in Life Corner. That nook, that corner office in a way, speak volumes about what you are, who you are, where you are heading to. If you look closely, the chairs look like staircases as if the time spent planning your future here would lead you to a greater path, the light being the guiding force. It all starts here, in one corner, seated in your chair, to see your tomorrow, your future course of action.

  • Testimonial

    Mojarto is exceedingly simple, straight, and easy to navigate for collectors as well as for artist. No confusion at any level. Very well managed with straight & transparent dealings. It is very good and useful online platform for established and upcoming artists. I think it is because of Mojarto.com that new and upcoming artists get chance to showcase their talent. Kudos to you and wishing you all the very best for the future.
