Bride Of India
Drawing is a progressive art. While my ink paintings/drawings draw much from the tradition, my effort has been to explore the new concepts in manipulation of lines and forms. I try to interpret them in aesthetic terms which one might comprehend without difficulty. Enjoy!
I am an engineer by profession. I hold a degree in electrical engineering and am also a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers in India. After my graduation I joined the steel industry and worked in senior capacities in major steel plants in India and abroad for over 30 years. I live in Bombay and am an independent consultant in the marketing of industrial products.
This background might seem entirely unconnected with the world of art, but for decades I have been wielding the brushes as a hobby. Although I am a entirely self-taught artist I have had a few one-man shows to my credit and been part of regional group exhibitions in Bombay, Bangalore, Delhi in the 70's and 80's.
Caught up in the rat race, however, I had little time to devote to my canvasses and virtually gave up painting. But the new millennium brought with it a new phase of creativity, and I am again finding myself painting and capturing the evanescent moments of nature.
