“There is no darkness but ignorance”- William Shakespeare
Art comes to me as a form of expression; I like to express the feelings and experiences I get by living in the Asian social order. I am partial to making the viewer think by commenting on what I feel are the errors and realities of society. My work is more about unnoticeable issues in a society’s eye that later causes bigger issues and stops society from growing. I think now is the time to move forward and leave such errors behind to regulate the modern world order. I would describe my work as a modern drama with trenchant wit assimilated into a century-old technique of painting. Every other painting is a different commentary on my surroundings.
