artist statement

I come from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. I am interested in culture specific art, that is, South Indian art. As I think about myself, my works, my attitude, concepts, my dreams and goals, my faith, love and desire, it is like a Pilgrimage. Being a Pilgrim can be very difficult in all senses but at the same time greatly pleasurable too. The process of Art is exactly like a Pilgrimage to oneself. Each work of Art remains as a map or compass that guides the art traveller to reach his or her destination. Or we could call these works of art as marks or graffiti kept by the traveller to avoid going astray in his or her risky journey.
