What is your background
I am an Artist as well as IT Professional. Art is always my first love in life.As a child I could entertain myself for hours engrossed in various creative projects. I remember my first drawing was published in magazine when I was in Year 3, gradually my Art journey started since then. Graduated in Bachelor of Fine Arts (Applied) from Nagpur University India and earned Master of Business Administration MBA from Coventry University London UK. Apart from paintings I do Photography too. My Paintings solo exhibitions successfully held in London. Participated in group shows in India and UK. Received awards for paintings and artworks. The absolute best thing about being an artist is that it opens up a whole world of connections.
What does your work aim to say
When I do paintings there is a multiplicity of aims, one for each different work that I do, it just depends upon what I am trying to say or picture at that time. For me art can take many different forms, stimulates creativity and imagination. My aim of painting is to provide visual, tactile and sensory experiences and special way of understanding and responding to world. Create awareness of the roles and culture. Foster an enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts.
Who are your biggest influences
There were certainly artists whose work had an impact on me. The first Artist to have captured my attention was Pablo Picasso. I am influenced by Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Vincent Vangoh, Raja Ravi Verma, Amrita Shergil, Jamini Roy, Rabindranath Tagore, Vasudev Gaitonde, S H Raza, M F Hussain.
It’s hugely inspiring when a painting wins an award or is accepted in to an exhibition or is purchased by collector. These things make me thrilled.

I am passionate & curious about my Art profession. I am always looking out for and learning new and better approaches.
How have you developed your career
Becoming an artist takes dedication, hard work and plan. One need to be creative and have a keen eye for detail. In order to be successful you must have the ability to know what looks good, to come up with new ideas and to develop your own style.
How do you connect with galleries
First of all its important to know what’s involved when working with a gallery and how to approach them with the work. It takes a little encouragement, but once you understand the process and get up the nerve.

The trends which I follows are intricate patterns, vibrant colours, use of textures and a layers, simplified theme and shapes, mixed media, modern contemporary of accent pieces and art.
What do you think of Nawras Art Gallery’s potential
Internet is reshaping the art business, online art world revolution is happening now in a very major way. Nawras Art Gallery is one of them. Giving platform to amateur as well as established artist to exhibit artwork online. Gallery’s main focus is on hobby artist who find it difficult to establish in the market. I think Nawras is here to Provide one more dimension to wonderful market of paintings and artwork.
