The artist draws his inspiration from the corridors of childhood and its innocent years. The follies and frolics of childhood often creative change into the hard realities of life. Yet its these innocence, enthusiasm and imagination that entice the artist which he visually narrates through simple lines, and tonal variation kept minimal to create the desired effect of black and white. Exploring the dimensions of fantasy blended to verbalize the reality that is far removed from childhood innocence mirroring the harsh reality called life, politics, and human nature.
