I have always wanted, since I attained consciousness, to give expression to my feelings. Reflecting over the bygone years, I remember being a sensitive kid, aspiring to articulate deeply felt emotions – and painting is the medium that made it easy! And since, have constantly strived to evolve, attaining a higher level with each canvas I painted. As the saying goes, “A picture speaks a thousand words,” I find painting to be the most powerful medium to expression, as an artist is not restricted to any set standards or rules.
Originally, hailing from Kashmir. I left the mesmerizing valley of beauty and peace in 1990 just before it turned into a pool of blood and all human rights and values were infringed, rather abused.
I have a Masters Diploma in Advanced Graphic Arts from CDAC, Pune, India, besides securing a Masters in Mass Communications from Symbiosis, Pune, India.
A self-taught artist, I have been working with lines and colors since adolescence. Deep passion for art has been driving my career towards Mass Communications with special focus on Visual Communications. I started my professional career with an advertising company as a Visualiser and in two year’s time ascended to be the Creative Design Manager. And since (for last 8 years), have been working as a Creative Head handling all types of media; Print, Multimedia, and Internet production. Throughout my career with various companies, I have executed a number of Ad. Campaigns and other creative design works.
An artist with varied expressions and styles, I have done a lot of impressionistic work on subjects like landscapes, Figurative, Abstract, Portraits in both Oil and water medium.
