About Artist

I emerged as an artist with influence from various sources. After post- graduation, I copied and learned the technique and style of cubism and used this style for a while using analytical vision based on fragmentation and multiple viewpoints. While Dadaism taught me to reject the aesthetic standards by aiming to create anti-art, employing a sense of absurd. Fauvist, adopted a style, painted in a spontaneous manner, using bold colours. Photo-realism or super-realism movement emerged in the United States and Britain portraying an extremely detailed and exacting style. One source of my inspiration and influence was the Pop Art. It opened my eyes to a wider vision of the world, where mass media, advertising and popular culture mingled with history, be it films, politics or soup cans. A fusion of all this influences resulted in the culmination of my style "Warhol and the history of art".

My style consists of spinning tales inspired by popular culture, mythology, society and politics with an analytical eye coupled with a sense of humour. Depicting or juxtaposing a blue skinned, multi-limbed Kali, quirky juxtaposition of Fiona with little Ogres or Paul the Octopus against the portrait of Andy Warhol are some of the examples that fall under my oeuvre. Additionally, social statements using mannequins, newspaper cuttings, bikinis, chastity belts etc. form a natural progression to my previous works.
