About the Artist

I am an abstract artist from Indore, working in different mediums like Paintings, Sculptures, Installations and Photography, currently working on the series “SPIRALS” for the last 7 years. In my views……
Spiral is not a form but a Journey of Developing my own Language.
Language of Communication……
Language of Worship…….
And of course
Language of Science and Logics.


Basically, spirals come from Sufism, “Raqs” do this type of worship which
has four different stages in which there is the movement of dance in spiral forms. When we speak about movement, the classification for this could be the generation of energy in our body, This all energies floats in nature in form of our five elements i.e.Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Sky. Even great poet and writer like Khalil Gibran, Rumi, Bulleshah also mentioned this truth in their poetries and write-up. The colours of my paintings directly come from these five mighty elements, that’s why most of my paintings are in bright colours like Red, Yellow, Blue Green ……..The addition of metallic colours like Gold and Silver reflects the presence of THE ALMIGHTY energy which is always present in every one and everywhere.
Spirals also have scientific logic, which is very close to its mythological meanings.


Physicist, Paul Dirac bagged the Nobel award for “Theory of Spirals/Strings”. According to the theory, even the smallest particle electron is also made up of spirals, usually which look like a dot. It means there is a movement in each and everything in our surroundings and all these things are full of energy, and I am trying to restore this energy in my canvas in the form of “S P I R A L S”.
