Born in 1984. He studied at the Banaras Hindu University.
His art is symbolic of a schema necessary to unburden the cruelties that are burdened by the political realities within the society.
He uses forms such as cones, trellises and lace to construct resistance drawings from cultural traces, such as Persian and Urdu poetry as traces. ‘His works replace conceptually the loss of 18 century architecture within an emergence of an urban chaos, as he looks out for ‘Intersections of Syncretic Forms of Culture.’
In 2018, he edited a collection of poems in colloquial Urdu with poets based in Faizabad, which he illustrated and screen printed into a hand-bound book called 'Awadh-daur-e-Hazir’ which was launched at the Bon Art Book Fair, 2018 Tehran - an example of the syncretic past he is interested in re-animating through a conceptual practice that emerges from the traditions and tenets of Islamic Visual Culture. His incorporation of these traditions is a form of pacifist dissent against communalism in his environment.
