The entire collection is based on the theme VANDEVTA meaning the rainforests of India. The series has godly faces carved with nature in a beautiful manner urging the people to respect nature.
I create graphic and structural uniformity on canvas through the play of light and shade. My paintings are a judicious mix of the abstract and realistic forms, which stems from unique imagination, combining the real natural world with the artistic and creative world.
According to me green is the colour of life, but human beings, through ages, have exploited it without understanding how pristine and important it is for life on earth.
In my unique set of some paintings titled “Vandevta” (Rain forest-Jewels of the Earth) urges people to respect it by personifying the flora in godly images and figures. The different faces in my paintings are carved out of a leaf with various motifs forming the eyes and lips.
I find modernism on canvas with the help of old mythological art, expressing the same through remarkable use of colours to depict the unknown mysteries in the natural world. “I got the idea for this theme from the Rain-Forest. Somehow they appear to be forming an image which looks very much like a God face or an human shape or form,”
I feel that nature gives us everything we need in our life, yet we never return the favour. The purpose of my paintings is to inculcate faith in nature. “I believe with my paintings I can bring people to see the divinity inside every green form, be it a plant, a tree trunk or even a leaf.”
