about - AHS, Redwood City, CA
Most of my artwork relates to oceans and skies. Growing up near the shore in Bombay, I was fascinated by the colorful sunsets, the monsoon clouds, and sounds of the waves at night, when the city noise died away.
The beauty in these waves, clouds and colorful sunsets is their dynamic, transient nature – the scenery is ever changing from one moment to the next. No two instances are identical, and the interactions between the moving clouds, the sun's shifting colors, and the sea create mesmerizing combinations every second. I try to commit these passing moments to the canvas – the colors, the forms, shadows and flickers of light. I like to capture these memories in both realistic and semi-abstract style, giving a bit of personal interpretation.
Hopefully, these paintings will remind you of those walks by the beach and bring to surface fond memories of the friends & lovers whom you shared those times with.
