Like every piece of art that starts with the first stroke of the brush, for me it began in 2002, when I joined Raja Ravivarma College of Fine Arts for my bachelor’s degree. And four years had changed the way I looked at art. Not just on real medium, but it also lured me to pick up my first camera. Photography intrigued me; how life looks so different from behind the lens. Pictures are worth a thousand words right? It was the first time I had the urge to travel without packing a bag (ask me about Calcutta).
Life is what happens, when you’re busy planning something else; and so, London happened. The opportunity to study Design Communication in Cavendish College, London changed my life forever. It was a new perspective, a new city, new people and something new to learn every day. My art became the narrative for my life. Every illustration, every photograph and every sketch I made, had a story to tell. Advertising became a platform for me to be vocal with art; the final nudge.
13 years and counting, art still intrigues me, keeps me humble and always learning.
