Tell us about yourself.
An Automobile engineer turned graphic designer; my technical side helps me in better understanding of the problem while the creative side helps me in finding the necessary solution. As a kid I was fascinated by speed and with time I started observing the designs in fast cars and bikes. During my engineering I started doodling to de-stress myself and that is how I realized how much I love art and design. I believe aesthetics and visual language is an important factor in triggering human emotion and if done right it could better serve everyone’s need.
What are your art interests?
I enjoy all kind of artforms be it drawing, singing, dancing or writing. During my teenage I completed my 4-year course in Classical singing from ‘Bhatkhande music’, also along with that I took part in several dance performances hosted by my school. I seldom write poetry when I feel overwhelmed with emotions and art & designing is one thing that has been constant throughout my life. I believe that art is the best way to let your emotions out and I do that with any medium of art I feel comfortable with.
What are your views about the current scenario of art in our country?
I feel that in current scenario our country is being very supportive to the artists and art forms, and this leads to rise of new artists who respect and value art forms.
