Artist statement

My work aims to bring forth dark corners of human condition and emotions that language doesn’t serve.

If I could explain using words, what I want to say, I wouldn’t have drawn — and increasingly I tread the days and nights of a life that brings me emotions that language just doesn’t cater.

My work meets at the mid way between surrealist automatism and my helpless desire to make meaning.

I currently work with ink and paper as the medium gives me permission to get lost in meditation while creating.

I am inspired by the sensitivity of Japanese minimalist aesthetics, the colour rush of Henri Rousseau and the childlike spirit of Henri Matisse.

I am also looking for galleries to show my work. Should you be interested, please drop me a line at
