I am a multidisciplinary contemporary artist who under the guidance of various masters was trained in a realist style and later developed an appreciation for the more progressive work.
Core idea of my art is to capture the interplay of Abstraction and Realism along with the ‘Tao’ or Movement of nature. My paintings often have a focus on Sustainability related topics and Nature.
Show the essence and inherent Movement of the subjects in a minimalist way. The idea is to make the Movement play into viewers imagination and allow great freedom of thought. For the Abstract paintings, I let the subconscious take over. I feel it allows one to be connected at the fundamental level and yet free flow on the conceptual level.
In my abstract canvases that dominated M1.0, focus is to make the idea of focal point non-existent and provide equality. The various strokes and designs form at the moment and extend.
Sustainability is the next biggest challenge the planet faces, sustainable products, people and places; I often revisit this theme to try and create public awareness through my art. I am working on a tech driven project ( now names MX .0) where I am working on bringing together my passion, expertise and creativity for larger good.
