“I enjoy watching people engaged in everyday activities, unmindful of what anyone else is doing and immersed in a private moment. I often use this as my inspiration for creating my paintings. Most of them are scenes from Kerala. The human anatomy is sheer poetry. Age, size, none of it truly matters, they speak stories. This is also the reason I often do studies of nudes. This also is the most challenging, as I’ve been working on it for years. I also make artworks that often talk of a certain time, discord, which may be political, environmental and social. ”
