I paint intuitive energetic abstracts using bold colors and forms. Even at their most abstract, my paintings are deeply rooted in my life experiences of growing up in India, migrating to the US, my engineering background, a love for exploring and experiencing new places, and finding beauty in everyday mundanity. My paintings explore the themes of culture, city life, nature, and geometry
I begin the paintings with a simple mark or some leftover color, without a set idea in mind; as I add more elements, I let the image decide where it wants to go. Sometimes it is quick and straightforward, but often it takes multiple layers to finish a composition.
On the surface, the first impressions to a viewer may be the bright colors and the bold shapes, but as they spend more time with the painting, the details draw them to look deeper and explore. What I find most rewarding is when people can connect to an emotion, a place, or a time in their life through the abstraction. Sometimes it matches my idea, which is great, but it is even better when they have a completely new experience, and I rediscover the painting through their eyes.
