An  enemy occupied cliff or an innocent looking blank canvas resting on an easel - both can stretch the fibre of one's soul to a dangerous tipping over point into insanity.

I feel privileged that Almighty gave me an opportunity to face both. I feel even more privileged that He gave me courage to face these  ethically and aesthetically. I still feel sane and living life near normal.

Armed with an AK 47 and a brush, I was astride two wild horses - if 8PM to 3AM was night operations in jungles, 3 AM onwards it was battle on the canvas. I dared to dream and live two lives in parallel. Having acquired a formal education in art early on in my Army life, I started working aggressively with various mediums, materials and concepts. The obsession with art resulted in me having created large number of works on varied themes from local flora fauna to pure abstraction. I have  showcased my works in Fifteen Solo Shows in various metros in India over a period of as many years.

The guiding rule all through has been - "When in battle fight like a warrior and when facing a canvas paint like a warrior".

Inspired by the Japanese Zen, I experimented with different media to have my own signature style.I found mixed media which gave me freedom of making marks and creating textures suite my expression style. The underlying complex geometry of the works is subdued by the overlays and bold marks. The works provide a final sophisticated imagery.
