I have been painting ever since I could remember. The subject I often paint involve intimate
interior spaces, personal spaces with processions with which I share an intimate connection
In the second year, the mandatory miniature workshop taken by Gopa Trivedi had a
significant impact on the course of my practice. I became engrossed in bringing together
forms, textures and stylistic characteristics from various schools of miniature paintings.
Having learnt the techniques of making pigments, preparing the wasli surface for the
miniature painting, I began experimenting and employing water-based media on surfaces
created by sticking Rice paper and handmade sheets to paint on.
Jahangiri Miniatures depicting his childlike unselfconscious joy of possessions, scenes from
Ramyana or Radha Krishna with Fine brushwork, intricacy, detailing and stylization with
some motifs that hint the history and lineage of stylistic characteristics in a particular school
are the unique attributes of miniature painting that deeply interest me. After working much
like Rajasthani and Mughal style, I began painting my studio spaces, interior and personal
spaces with textures, patterns and stylistic references from the various schools, often bringing
together various references into a singular picture plane.
