Artist Statement :
An Artist typically is a being whose emotions flow in a river of imaginations, expressing love, beauty, pain, suffering, gratitude for certain lands, people, ideas, images, cultures, religions and spirituality. True Artists have stopped fearing failures, actually when you buy something from an Artist, you are buying more than an object, you are buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentations, you are buying years of frustrations and moments of joy, you are not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul, a piece of someone else’s life. Hence an Artist is a true believer of Life.
Live with Art, Its Good for You. Patronise Art.
