I have been painting and sculpting for last 30 years.This search and exploration of art has taken me to places and thus I was exposed to many unique experiences and events.When I look back at this journey of 30 years my mind is filled with a mosaic of emotions. I have 62 exclusive and more then 100 group exhibitions to my credit. Every one of them was an unique experience. Each exhibition showcased unique paintings, sculptures. This memories make me nostalgic and that becomes the source of new ideas, new paintings, new sculptures. There are always new exhibitions, new paintings. I keep thinking of those which were chosen by connoisseurs. What do I achieve from this? Mind keeps prodding, what were the thoughts and feelings that I put on the canvas in colors? What prompted the lines on a paper? what were the ideas that came to life and crystallized into a sculpture? what were the enchanting melodies that lifted my spirits? which words guided me to this journey of color and images? I was attracted towards the simple yet profound philosophy of Tukaram. Exploration of his poems and that of Dnyandev reflects in my creations. Indian culture made its impact on my art through the age-old creations like Ajantha and Ellora, Khajuraho. This understanding of art was then groomed and enriched by the experiences I gathered in the modern cities of Mumbai, Delhi, Amsterdam, Brussel, Paris, London, Warsaw etc.
