artist statement

The Quest for truth is the ultimate purpose of life. In fact, most of the time we cannot see or understand the hidden mystery of nature for it cannot be discovered.

We think that our relationship with nature is only the need of our time. The whole universe consists of the same atomic structure, atoms as whole are made up of the atomic mass of the biosphere. Atoms contain the very existence of life then it is true that I and the universe are almost the same. Same belief applies to humanity as well after all human beings are composition of those atoms

A moderate mind can help us free ourselves from the current life that we are in and its overall effects. Restraint will come only if we become aware of our existence and my work will help people to increase their consciousness about it.

I respect the culture and heritage of my country and from there I collect the elements of my artwork and its presentation. I have transformed the traditional technique and methods of my artworks through the lens of the modern world.x`
