"I am a young, self-taught artist(An artist Or rather, in the process of becoming one, as I am still learning the finer aspects of artistry) from India. Since childhood, I have a keen interest in painting, especially watercolors. During school days, I managed to win four gold medals and one silver medal as well as many others. Though trained as a chemical engineer, my born urge made me take up painting with zest once again. I like to portray my subjects as they are. Speaking of subjects, I prefer my subjects to be different, far removed from the daily monotonous regularity of life. For example, the devotee at eh ashram, the Bonda tribeswoman..and yes, being an Indian, I am a bit more inclined to portray the spectacle, the wonder that is my country, my land , on my paper as much as possible. I consider myself as a beginner, a newbie, a student. And as being a student, curiosity comes naturally to me,and it is this curiosity that drives me, motivates me to paint ,to put my ideas, my perspective of the world around me into the paper."
