A self taught artist..Well nobody is self taught..Life teaches so much every moment..Then there are people you come across who teach you informally. So when i met manas jena, rinni dhumal, sachin jaltare , baigu ram , arshad suleh and many such in one or other art camps or in a social gathering ..I learnt. So my mentors are numerous but no formal degree. People's praise were my certificates i cherish more than printed ones.
Watercolour has been my favourite medium. In it i graduated from a humble paper to arches and bockingford to watercolour canvas. The flow and restless water colour has is exactly that i have. The transparency and humility watercolor has jut blends in me..Making me love this medium more. With time i came into oil and later to acryllic.
Another medium that enticed me is charcoal. The brutality and rawness this monotint offers is amazing. I have done a lots of portraits with this medium. This medium can handle the innocence of a child's portrait as well as the fire in a bull with same dexterity.
My exhibition of 'golfers' in abstract in watercolour is another thing i attribute to my nuances of colours and figurative style.
I just cannot thank God enough to bless me with the creativity in such an abundance. I take just a few hours to metamorphose a place into a piece of art with actually not putting any new or expensive things but just by rearranging..Deleting few things. My aestheticism is my biggest forte as well as best buddy.
