Print-maker and painter, Atin has experimented with his print making skills and developed an unique way of working with the application of tempera giving a different feel to his dextrous work. His etchings, sketches and acrylic on canvas all speak of his sensitive nature always seeking to see and express differently. Through the usage of texture and shade he builds his characters full of personal power. The soft sensitive imagery, the figures exude subtle power, an inner strength, deep sense of peace, a transformative depiction that is sublime. His recent work shows an influence of the East and the Orient. The recluses and the sages of his canvases, etchings and lithographs on paper, are deeply spiritual, and strong living in harmony with themselves and with nature
