While working in the creative field in Mumbai one-day saw a film about Leonardo Da Vinci and a sentence " Painting is a Silent Poem" forced me to think seriously about painting and also made me humbler to the cause of art.
For the first time I realized the purity of art, and the sheer force of expression.
Moved by the great vision, I subsequently went on to exhibit my paintings. My work was selected and displayed in the National Exhibition - Bienalle, at Bharat Bhavan, Bhopal (M.P)
This is one of the most prestigious exhibitions in India, and it indeed was an honor to exhibit there. This inspired me to continue on the path and work hard to create new dimensions.

Govt. Dip. in Applied Arts, from Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya, Pune in 1985.
I was already a successful illustrator and commercial artist, having worked in Mumbai under the guidance of Mr. Viru Hiremath eminent Creative Director. over the years I had won several prestigious awards in the field of advertising and publication. Since 1986 to 1995 I had participated & won the awards consecutively. A moment I thought that this achievement is enough to judge myself, and stopped participating forever!
I am fascinated about the transparency of colours, whether it is Water colours or oil. This technique is a "Pure Transparent Method" that is used uniquely by me on canvas. The effect tries to capture the solidity and strength of colours distinctly, by keeping its transparency as it is. White is never used; the highlight area is actually the natural shade of the canvas, which is effectively left. The impact of the Oil colours is bold and fresh, filling the image with the vitality of colours.
