Mind speaks loudly to itself even if one is quiet. It is translated into thoughts that resonate with a clear message. You must listen to your inner voice to put your thoughts into perspective. Echoes of the mind also allow one to listen and reflect on what was the original thought and how it changes form when it bounces back. The two-way process helps in crystallising ideas and giving them a concrete shape. It is a significant process that allows one to introspect and get rid of confusion or doubts that can impede your imagination. Once done, thoughts lead to action with mind being the guide leading you to the desired outcome. Thus ideas that reverberate need to be listened to with rapt attention for they may not come back in the same form. Such echoes serve as a chance to review and modify the original ideas and put them into shape in another way.
Artist’s statement: I usually work on the idioms which represents various situations and events of the present scenario. In my works, I portray different aspects together in a new perspective. This creates a kind of illusion in my works. In one of my works, I have represented the icons like antique coin which represents the leading role of the present currency and the act of demonetization.

Artist's Statement: The strength of my work is that it represents an Indian artist’s quest for an indigenous tenor rather than a superficial inventory of native motifs. In my works, I have tried to represent the various forms of nature which is the greatest inspiration, tends to experience a visual poetry where both word and color have their own presence and meaning. Most of the times, I attempt to hold and give a shape to the manifestation of energy. My paintings are not a replica of the outer world. They are the natural outcome of my innermost world. While experimenting, I keep on depicting the ever self-innovating patterns in colors, strokes, forms and textures. In short, I want to create a pure world of my own self owing its existence to its own texture and fabric.
This artwork is a telling comment on the present day scenario of terrified, politically disturbed world. This scenario impacts us all; financially, socially, politically, emotionally and physically. We see more destructive than constructive efforts. Human beings do anything and everything, good or bad - constructing a temple, mosque or a church or demolishing the same - in the name of god or religion. It is as if we are at war. And in this show of powerful, the most affected are the innocent souls, the children and the common people. They are the victims who lose their lives and identity.Artist statement: I’m not a political artist, but I cannot ignore the political world. When I read the newspaper or watch news on television, my mind is destroyed by the horrifying incidents reported. My works are the outcome of such things. The current scenario has forced me to paint what I do not like as I want people to have a glimpse of what we have done to our world. available as a limited edition of a unique print.
Artist's note:Thoughts often appear as straight lines and sometime when I close my eyes to think it starts from tiny bright white dots flying randomly in inner space in some kind of unguided flight gradually convert into lines and then appear as emitting lines, lines over flying lines. As if the random lines themselves are designated to form enclosed forms and shapes that may reflect structures in some unknown reality rising up to emitted dimensions in time.
