Hi, I am a self-taught artist with a small story behind why I paint.
Ever since childhood, I have always felt a very strong divine force that has been guiding me. I always wondered what it was, a feeling that is difficult to express with words. I felt a deep connection with this power whenever I sat down to sketch or paint. I would be lost, have no sense of time or space.
Today, I am glad I have found answers to most of my questions with respect to life. My interest in Indian philosophy and my yogic and meditation practices have changed my outlook on life. I perceive life in a more meaningful way.
Art has become a means of communication for me. My art develops along with my spiritual journey. The yogic teachings of ancient India offers the science of inner unfoldment. Their goal is attunement with the higher Self. It enhances our every undertaking by putting us in touch with the true source of all inspiration. With this uplifted state of soul-consciousness, I work to uplift the hearts of my viewers through my work. I believe that works that express soul-consciousness are gifts from a higher world and to produce such works is impossible without inner stillness that I have gained and continue to with my spiritual practices.
Art to me is energy and vibrations, every stroke that I create on the canvas carries with it the vibration and energy of my divine experience. It has become the language of my heart. I want my viewer to bond with that vibration, that feeling than merely looking at my art in terms of color, lines or symmetry. A strong flow of energy brings about vitality and dynamism which I strive to achieve.
My intention is to invoke a sense of feeling that I experience during my meditation and self inquiry, a feeling of calmness, stillness, peace, love, freedom, completeness and many more divine expressions.
Most of my paintings are allegorical. It expresses more than what appears at the surface. Art as a hidden message, as a guide to true liberation and self realization. The subject truly does not matter, it is the feeling and the bonding with ones true Self that I want to establish. There is no end to my learning and the journey of discovering my own true potential.
Through art I want to share my journey and experiences. I am striving to get to a state where I completely surrender myself and become an instrument to that Divine Power and let the grace and blessings flow through me to all around me and through my art.
