Artist's Statement

Artist’s Statement
Our society is a complex society with a cacophony of clashing social-political, cultural and economic interest. Art mirrors life, since life is multifaceted. An attempt to reflect on it will naturally yield a myriad of thoughts, the beautiful and the ugly, the joyous and the saddening, the inspiring and the despairing, the palatable and unpalatable. The country’s situation should reflect in its Art.
The strength of an artist lies in the development of the mind. This enhances perception and also widens the scopes for creativity. The Artist’s ability to dominate his work with his being is important. Therefore, I try to make my art relevant and to serve as a tool for progress. To touch and inspire lives. To advice, report, record, and correct situations. To tend to act like a voice or a tool to improve the well-being of the community.
