Art is a passion from my childhood. When I came to know that my passion can be chosen as a profession, I wanted my profession and my passion should be the same, so I discontinued the post-graduation program and joined BFA, specializing in painting from Andhra University. Then I finished my M.F.A degree from Mysore University Mysore, with painting specialization.
My journey towards learning and creative thinking led me to focus on my childhood life so that I created an entire portfolio on this subject, then I wanted to show the togetherness of erotic love in companion ship of a wife and husband this was done in color wood cut prints. Then I progressed to study Buddhism, I would like to express my feelings as an artist through Buddha series I felt blessed after doing Buddha series.
My entire focus in art is generally figurative, I give importance and like representational forms rather than nonrepresentational forms, being the breadwinner of my family, my focus was completely on earning a lively hood. Thus I became too busy in taking home tuitions in art after the school hours, when I am travelling during the day in the busy streets, I have observed the rushing people, busy traffic, concrete jungle with heavy hoardings everywhere around me. All these accumulated thoughts in my mind helped me to form a different view about my surroundings. This experience made me to study my unconscious. My journey towards learning and creative thinking led me to abstraction which added a special flavor to my body of work with an unaltered, free flow of color. The transparency and texture gave my work a special feeling. My work largely draws from the subconscious.
In the process of my art practice I just wanted to stop thinking and planning what to do on my canvas, I would like to do the work without any preoccupied thoughts. I wanted to do the painting exactly how my mind responds at that particular time in front of the canvas and I did it, I found the true joy of paintings in non-representational forms itself. Later on I understood that there is no scope of painting without preoccupied thoughts. Whatever I do that will be from my sub conscious mind so there is no point of painting without preoccupied thoughts.
