The content of my art is usually fiction, that sometimes tells a story and other times just an idea. My artwork tries to explore the vast spaces of imagination.
Sci-Fi is my favorite genre of fiction. I specialize in creating concept art & illustrations for various projects such as games, animations, movies, comics or even other random ideas floating about in my head.
Fiction is a way of abstraction commonly used by artists, writers and other visionaries as it reveals, very subtly, what journeying into a person’s mind might be like. I like to explore fiction visually because it gets the cog wheels running as I board whole new trains of thought. Fiction has the ability to take you away from the troubles of the real world as you get immersed in it. The practice of Delving visually in and out of the worlds of fiction has the ability to consciously choose the domain of my own thoughts, i.e. the practice of "Saadhana". Since our time in this life is finite, I want to make it count and use the power of fiction towards creativity.
The artists of Star trek came up with the visual look/idea/design of “ the communicator” , that sparked the creation of cell phones. Leonardo da vinci came up with “ the flying machine “ and look at how these things have changed our lives! Art has the ability to spark ideas that can spiral out. My purpose is to create as much art that does exactly that, throughout my life.
I have explored both Traditional and Digital media . My weapon of choice currently remains digital media where I tend to use both 2D and/or 3D techniques to create digital art and animations.
My artwork can be shaped as posters or framed prints ( signed , limited editions , exclusives & merchandise prints) as well as traditional media commissions ( canvases & framed paintings , original sketches and drawings). It also includes non-tangible finished digital artwork files related to 2D or 3D art, animation & videos!
A B.tech. degree course (2006-2010) in Computer science & engineering gave me a strong technical foundation (understanding of OOPs concepts), an edge to learn new software and support creative production. Insatiable passion for Art, Animation and CGI.
An MA degree in game art and animation from the University of Abertay Dundee (2010-2012), Scotland, gave me a fantastic big-picture of the entire process of game-development as well!
