Hi to the Foundmyself team ,artists and art lovers.
I am a self taught artist, basically hailing from Pune, and now residing in Hyderabad since 12 years.I have worked as a chemistry faculty for several years.
I took to painting since 2013, by quitting my job. My childhood hobby of sketching,continued ever since,during my free time, that has helped me feel destressed ,calmer and focussed.After having a crash course on using several mediums for painting, I worked on several kinds of themes and mediums.
There is not a single day that goes without a brush in my hand.
I had been fortunate enough to get several opportunities to participate in group shows in Pune,Hyderabad, Vishakapatnam,Indore,Bhopal,Bengaluru,Kochi. I have to my credit several jury awards and my paintings have been selected for display in prestigious platforms such as Hyderabad Art Society, Balgandharva ,Pune, Karnataka Chitrakalaparishad,Bengaluru, Canary art gallery,Indore for Finext,Aillamma art gallery, Muse Art gallery, Potti Sriramulu university,Hawa Mahal,Vishakapatnam,and many more.
My art collections are in Pune,Hyderabad, Vishakapatnam, Gwalior, Nanded ,etc
I love to paint realism, emotions and expressions and nature,outdoor painting.I have worked with Oils,acrylics, charcoal, water colors ,mixed media,etc
My paintings have been selected for coverpage of Between the Lines publications, in collab with an NGO, Badlaav,Pune, whose proceeds are used for the education of underprivileged children.
I also teach arting to kids and elders as well.
Painting has enrichened me in several dimensions of life such as observation,introspection,spirituality.
Painting for me is in one word ,”BLISS”.
With warm regards to all members of FOUNDMYSELF.
