THE ONE WHO HAS FUELED MY PERSEVERANCE IN AND DEVOTION TO ARTS WAS PROF. SILPA BHIRASI, HAVING HIS TEACHINGS AND SACRIFICE AT HEART. I HAVE NEVER STOPPED PAINTING.

FOR BETTER OF WORSE, I JUST CAUGHT EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO PRACTICE EVEN IF A LOT OF MY WORKS WERE UNFINISHED. AND SO MY ARTISTIC SKILL HAD ADVANCED BEFORE I WAS AWARE OF IT.

MY EXPERIMENTAL PAINTING WITH DIFFERENT TOOLS UNTIL EVEN TURNING A TUFT OF GRASS INTO A SIMPLE INVENTION OF PAINTING BRUSH COULD ADD A VERIETY TO THE STEREOTYPE. ALTHOUGH TO PAINT WHAT ONE IS ANOTHER WAY OF INSTANT MOOD EXPRESSIONS, IT WOULD BE FAR BETTER TO ALSO PUT THE PROCESS OF THINING AT WORK. THE MORE ONE PRACTICES, THE BETTER FINESSE HE GAINS.

AS A RECOGNIZED ARTIST POSSESSING GOOD BASICS ON PAINTING, SCULPTURE AND GRAPHIC ARTS, MY PARADIGM WAS SHIFTED TO TRIAL AND ERROR IN ARTS. SINCE THE THEMATIC UNIFORMITY FAILED ME, THE SUBSTANCE OF MY WORKS HAS ALWAYS VARIED.
