LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Art life chose me in a small tranquil hill town in the Kumaon Hills and my crowning glory has been to receive the National Award from the President of India, the world's largest democracy. This encouraged me to relocate to New Delhi, the Cultural Capital to follow my calling.
At the outset one took a bold decision to not adopt any traditional school of thought or be influenced by intellectualism or any other form of art. 17 years of hands-on experience of attending & holding art exhibitions, art camps in India & abroad, visiting artists studio helped me evolve as a self-taught artist. This helped my individual style and technique to develop which is not referential to the past. The preferred medium to express myself on is oil and acrylic colors on canvas, water colors and charcoal on paper and art installations.
My first Group Exhibition was at 19 yrs & Art became the raison d'être of my existence. Teaching art to kids was a good way to earn & learn through Studio A3-All About Art which touched the lives of 2000 Young Adults in 14 yrs.
One was richer by interacting with International Artists while attending exchange programs by visiting and hosting Artists from Germany, China, Bhutan, Sri Lanka & Pakistan. At Shilp Kutumb (NGO) worked with different crafts and got experience in different mediums. My last 6 years in isolation in my studio have been dedicated to looking inwards to evolve my art techniques in paintings which are not intimidated by the past & have a new story to tell.
