          I am a contemporary artist based in Mumbai, India. I create artwork combining photorealism with expressionism. My art spreads an awareness of the way sexuality integrates itself into the human conscience and how it plays a significant role in propelling it. It deals with human sexual instinct, its expression and its importance while redeeming the human from the oppression of conservatism.

I embrace to perpetuate the female figure into my art as my main component because female forms and shapes speak of the universal harmony I choose to represent. Often depicting her nude, I believe that recognition is only perceived and measured through the nakedness in her form.

My aim is to widen the spectrum of acceptability across societies by bringing back intimacy of the human instinct, allowing the reinstatement and consumption of its expressions. The intention of my work is to empower the demystification of divine love through the insertion of true intimacy into the growing loopholes of the human conscience and administer its perception of living.

Born in Mumbai, India, art found me at age three and has been a part of my voice ever since. I find myself closely drawn to typefaces and toy around with my influences of typographical design if I feel the necessity. I embed these into my working style to address core imports. I see design playing a pivotal role in the structural establishment of my art forms.

The focus of my work is to evoke the emotions and stages of arousal prior to and post sex. Ideologically, this deals with the liberation of an individual. Following a constant study of human behaviour in modern time, I work relative subjects into my thought process and employ symbolic representations of them.
