In 2005, during my college days, I first visited Mumbai; the spell still continues and with time, Mumbai’s atmosphere, citylife absorbs
me so much that I feel it, like my second home. From the year 2008,soon after receiving my bachelor degree from Kolkata, I have been in
Mumbai's gothic architecture, night life, traditional festivals, its enriched lifestyle have always beckon my heart. The umpteen shades of
Mumbai,drives me to capture them through my painting.In 2011, I had my 9th solo exhibition based on Mumbai life, but that was not
enough to fulfil my artistic thirst. After that capturing Mumbai's life in various moods has been my exploration and adventure through
When I got the bookings for Jahangir Art Gallery my first & foremost choice of subject was "Mumbai Visions".
Mumbai has a capacity to accommodate one and all from diverse backgrounds of cast, creed color and culture. All diversities exist in an
unexplained harmonious pattern, I have tried here with all three basic diversities of red, blue and yellow to flow into a harmonious
unification in my paintings. Though being apart in their nature, they are forming unity, very typical of Mumbai’s culture.
In this exhibition I have sought to manifest my explorations of some of the most popular places of Mumbai like Chhatrapati Shivaji
Terminus, Bandra–Worli Sea Link, Gateway of India, Mumbai Suburban Railway, Mumbai Monorail, The iconic black and yellow Premier
Padmini Taxis on busy roads, Mumbai city skyline, Mumbaiharbor etc...

RAJASTHAN - THE COLOR ECSTASY
13th Solo Exhibition of Paintings and Video Installation
In 2012, I visited Rajasthan for all its glory. The cutting edge golden light dazzled me; the colors lured me; the sandy dunes with its curves and patterns entangled with my creative self; the versatile characters of the locales and the indispensible camel enthralled me; the architectural vivacity with unique color regional identity left me spellbound and its rich folk music mesmerizing me.
When I entered, I was a visitor, when I moved around; Rajasthan aroused the artist within me inviting to visit again and again.
Here started my journey to explore the uncanny side of Rajasthan. Rajasthan has kept alive its roots; its colorful traditions; it’s glorious past still gleaming on the faces of sharp featured people with the innocence so rare of now; the color clad women veiled in with the shyness, worn as the grace of womanhood; the children with sparkling curiosity in traditional attire ready to embrace the future. Rajasthan is the unique state filled with color, culture and history.
This exhibition encases the fusion of real and surreal, expressed in a confluence of visual and performing expressions.
