My Inspiration :- I was born in a small coastal city, Visakhapatnam, in Eastern India. My initial works had elements of coastal life in them, fishermen/women, sea scapes. I relate happiness and sorrow through my colors. I first moved to Mumbai after my marriage. Man and woman series. Canada saw completely new colors. Living space series. I came back to India after a long gap of a decade. I was inspired by the tradition and spirit of Sankranti Festival in Andhra Pradesh. That period saw the series on Bulls (Gangiredulu). On the technical side, I feel I have achieved very strong control on the reverse painting technique. Not many artists are working on this media. I have tried to bring complex textures and rich colors.
