“He mostly uses abstraction to express himself which reflects a recurring theme – the transient nature of life and the Nature itself. His creations go beyond what he calls the outer look of various animate and inanimate objects around as he tries to reveal the layers of subtle nature lying underneath their visual forms. His spontaneous and bold strokes depict subdued hues human emotions like love hate while few other works show deeper understanding of contemporary life. At this juncture of his creative journey, he has been exploring different hues of blue for couple of years.”
