Hello.

I’m a painter based in Mumbai.

The paintings, drawings and work I make start in the same way. They focus on something found, often discarded, a forgotten periphery. Through a practice of celebration of colour and playing with arrangements, these relics are elevated. But then I push them past this, into uncomfortable zones, looking for the tipping point of ugliness. In this way my work explores whether the process of art creates beauty and, if so, when and to what consequence.

I enjoy the uniqueness of each painting session, how each one reveals a subtly different approach.

My work has been exhibited in Madrid and Canberra.
