My ink based, illustrative style of art is inspired by the various folk arts of India. Even though my work is Indian at heart, I aspire to create imagery that can transcend borders and has universal appeal.
I also draw inspiration from the world that surrounds me – having had the opportunity to have lived in 3 countries, I experiment with art styles and materials from these countries. For example, you can find the use of Hanji (handmade paper) from Korea, bindi (traditional forehead decoration) from India and Chinese motifs from Singapore in my work.
I’m fascinated with the synergy of patterns and how they can be used to create visual stories. I invite my viewer to take a closer look at my illustrations to see the intricate details and surprises within.
