1987-1991: Bachelor In Engineering, Bangalore University
1999-2000: Sculpture, IICD, Jaipur
I discovered my love of painting while living in Pimpri-Pune, Nasirabad-Ajmer, Tumkur-Bangalore & Jaipur. I experimented with various mediums learning what they could do and developing my own techniques that give my work a unique quality.
Developing my own style totally without the influence (and sometimes restrictions) of formal training I have no fear of taking my work in any direction I am motivated toward.
That creative freedom combined with my unique use of the materials allow me to create artwork that is distinctly my voice.
My work is mostly based around my film collage series. I like a variety of media and styles though, so you will find color pencil illustrations, scratch board etchings, new media pieces and more. My style varies from medium to medium. I gravitate toward circles and lines, making patterns
My Professional Art Journey Starts in 1996 but matured with “Ecstasy” due to my Guruji for Photography Sh. Kaushal Bhargav ji ( Chairman of Rajasthan Sangeet Natak Academy). In his company I experienced to see and listen Spiritual Dances & Music.
Then left Jaipur and shifted to Delhi after creating and to show:
“Bridge & industrial Scape,”
Created “So… the Man Created God” & ” Soul …the inner power”
mainly during travelling for Exhibitions !
Then Moved to Moscow as an Architect to design Indian Home for Etnomir , where I not only exhibited my paintings but also created series of painting:
“From Russia with Love”
And then i moved to Mumbai in 2008.
First expression “CITY OF BOXES”
(Assemblage, sculpture & installation)
Then “PER SQUARE FOOT” Paintings,
Then JOURNEY ( paintings n installation)
All in One year as though there is no tomorrow !
In 2009 i created few Collages on KHICHDI (Mix) CULTURE.
While parallel creating Sets for Reality Shows for TV.
And then Came RECESSION.
I went to Orrisa for Engineering job where along with engineering I enjoyed my passion for photography. I came back after 2 months and started creating “INTEGRATORS” on the displaced migrant workers to exhibit at Jahangir & museum gallery mumbai in 2010 & 2011 respectively.
But by then i had Entered Indian Television to create Mega Sets for TV Shows.
Year 2011 took me to BOLLYWOOD .. the reason i came to Mumbai and started creating Big Sets for Films,
Films kept me very busy..Teri Meri Kahani, Bhaiyyaji Super Hitt, Yamla Pagla Deewana-2, Rajjo, All is well, bobby jasoos, kaptaan, Kalank, Manikarnika, Special Ops and many more
I never stopped painting, but my experiments did stopped or slowed down,
Did lot n lot of Art & Architecture as Production designer & Art Director for Hindi Films.
And kept participating in International Art Shows.
Since year 2018, i am into realization about ” It is all about connection” & expressing through my paintings in this series in which i intend to make Sculptures & do installations.
On personal ground, my Parents are at my home town in Jaipur and I am here in Mumbai with my family of a wife and three daughters.
So this is my story as an Artist.
