  • About the artist

Cosmic Sparks is a piece about asteroids and moving rocks in space. There is so much of Stillness in vast expanse of space yet every once in a while we experience movement and life which is a miracle of God in a way. It is said that without His will not even a leaf moves, let alone astral bodies. I just find it so fascinating and also humbling that these moving asteroids could one day just wipe us off the face of the Earth.

A multidisciplinary schizoaffective artist from Mumbai and Bangalore, India.

My tryst with art began the first time I read a book on Dali at the friendly neighborhood bookstore in Mumbai that allowed patrons to read books in the store. Books that I could never afford, on Picasso, Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Monet, van Gogh, among other masters. 

I was always interested in art and wanted to study Fine Arts at college level but due to family pressure and the reality of arts not being a commercially rewarding career option in India, I dropped the idea. 

As an artist, my story is one of persistence against all odds . In 2011 I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, but rather than a hindrance I believe it works to shape my unique understanding of life, and seeing the beauty in the banal and divinity in the dull. 

My mind is extremely focused, but also warped and highly impressionable. It is deeply influenced by spirituality, the humanities, and Indian mythology with social activism sometimes. I like the viewer to experience a deeper meaning of life. 

I apply references from scriptures and popular culture (e.g. rap) as talking points. Bold, bright colors, abstract expressionism, and mixed media come as second nature to me.

I currently live in India, alternating between Mumbai and Bangalore and have a full-time dedicated art practice after having been fired from many jobs in the hospitality industry... (the field of my bachelor's). 

My themes are based on my own spiritual practices and experiences. I draw inspiration from Indian mythology and try to draw abstract from the same. I paint with bold and bright colors because I am a colorful person! :-) I like to exaggerate the colors I see around me in India.
