    FEW WORDS ABOUT MY PAINTINGS
    My paintings come spontaneously from the store of imaginations which I gather continuously through my childhood from the visible world as well as the non-visible feelings. The subject of my paintings varies from “Scam Smelling Dog” to “God Giving Blessings”, Female Nude to “Bad elements Terrorized the World”. But the common denominator in my paintings are moment, movement and force. It can be a sixer from an energetic cricketer, it can be an escaping deer from am approaching tiger, it can be an out-posted hut from a flash flood or it can be a swinging head of palm tree with monsoon wind. Some times these are very realistic and some times semi-realistic. The variation of medium is also just like my subject. I use from diluted ink to pencil, pastel, charcoal, acrylic and oil colour depend upon the demand of the subject.
    The recent works belong to the semi-realistic category with the medium of oil on canvas.
