I was born into a family in north of India and moved to Australia few years ago. As a child, I loved experimenting with my mother's bright colourful sarees and traditional clothes - this connection with the colours and textures was to be a continuous source of inspiration for me in the future. After coming to Australia, my passion for painting was growing. I would reminisce over the textures of clothes, embroideries, the folk arts of various states I had travelled to in my childhood. My soul yearned to interpret those memories and develop my own style in paintings.
I am a person who enjoys observing the ‘natural world’ of sunlight, clouds, mountains, trees, landforms, flowers, rocks, the sea, the dynamic effects of different light and weather conditions, etc. I feel more alive and engaged in ‘living’ when I am producing artwork (visual compositions) based on interactions with ‘natural world’ subjects (a positive form of engagement with an extremely complex, highly dynamic, multi-dimensional world of virtually infinite detail).
I'm an African Australian visual artist originally from Angola and my inspiration comes from the geometrical shapes of the African masks from my ancestry.
