The artist is known for his oil paintings of urban landscapes and is justly regarded as the avant-garde of contemporary Indian Art. He uses his bright colours and textures to explore the love he feels for the urban landscapes. There is an inner beauty in the big cities which people fail to see and which lies unappreciated by people, which he tries to bring forth through his abstract painting, brush by brush stroke by stroke. In the artist’s own words: "In a big city, I feel the vibration of an abstraction, and the colours red, blue, brown, black and olive green come alive in a meaningful way."
