“My work is the product of diverse experiences that I lived through over the course of my conscious recollection. Moving from place to place, being displaced several times, and not being settled anywhere physically or mentally compelled me to preserve those places. As each time I had to begin a new modus operandi making me contemplate what I could have been. I dealt with this ever-changing/evolving statuesque by expressing myself in the form of art as I find my work to be a platform where my mental and emotional attributes meet my cognitive ties whereas, the visuals show those spaces as I affiliate to them, not particularly as they were, forming a mind palace.” Emaan’s Art
