My art background
Back in my Art School days, I transitioned from using traditional painting techniques to looking into “Art Movements” like Assemblage, Mixed Media and Surrealism. I experimented a lot with a variety of collage mediums, which mostly included found objects. These artworks are assembled in unconventional ways.
Some influences include Edward Kienholtz and Robert Rauschenberg mixed with a bit of surrealism like Salvador Dali. My work has often been described as “Urban Tribalism” perhaps due to the use of metals and synthetic materials while mixed with natural elements like stone and wood. The subjects in my work evoke themes of birth, death, intimacy, chaos and love.
The individual defines ‘The Art’
Art is open to the viewer’s interpretation. My art is a manifestation of everyday experiences and observations crafted as a collection of found objects. Indeed, my art’s true expression does not adhere to any obvious meaning. Objects that have been discarded and often deemed insignificant to one person become significant to me in a new and unique way.
