@ Pune, India, 2008-2009

I have always nurtured this quest to explore my surroundings with bright splashes of colours, though my journey as a painter started from the other spectrum – with dark charcoal sketches portraying the inner turmoil of human psyche. My friends have a few times stolen these emotions to exhibit at boutiques and galleries in my hometown Calcutta.

But soon destiny took me to other shores half-way around the world and I landed up promoting my works at the weekend markets along Brick Lane in east London. I have been hugely influenced by artists’ works around Greenwich weekend market. The artists’ commune at Atlantis – an art materials depot in east London - also facilitated my thirst to experiment with newer mediums and textures.

Now that I am looking at changing my career path and venturing back to academics, I feel it’s the right time to devote quality time to develop my hobby. The real estate boom, with a renewed interest in doing up the interiors with original yet affordable works of art, can only help promote my cause; and my collage of canvases aims to achieve exactly that!
