Artist Statement

I see art as a way of expressing feelings, thoughts and emotions from ones soul, making depiction with a drawing medium of pencils and charcoal in such a way that it is understandable and relatable by those who see my artworks.

My drawings are majorly on facial expressions -telling a story with poetry, to strike the mind of my audience and anyone who comes across my Artworks and poetry.

All of these expressions reflects on the human face and can easily be read and understood -This is what inspires my art and I believe I can inspire others with my drawings and hope to change the society and the world for better.

My Artworks are of such that strikes the inner core of my audience and bring realisation about things oblivious to our naked eye, mind and the society.
