The Art of Transition: How I use my art as a documentary tool

 Throughout my career as an artist I’ve had tremendous life transitions. My journey began in Mumbai where the hustle and bustle of the lively city led me to one of the best art colleges Sir, J. J. School of Arts.  After that I then pursued a Masters of Fine Art in London and I found myself working among new colleagues in an international atmosphere. My next big move was across the Atlantic to New York City to pursue art full time.

These transitions were all to extremely large cities that are continuously moving and this energy resonates and layers within each of my works. But sometimes it’s hard to keep pace with life. The hardest challenge for me was to re-establish myself and my artwork at each of these new places.

As an artist, I want my work to be seen and shared with the masses and even though I’ve traveled and exhibited extensively, it’s still difficult to get my art in front of the right people. Being selected to exhibit my work at Art Comes Alive and even winning a purchase award has strengthened my reach as an artist and helped cater to a completely different clientele.

Seeing the passion and dedication for the promotion of artists and art from Art Design Consultants and Blink Art Resource was highly encouraging for me to get involved. I’ve adopted a personal mantra to continuously allow myself to live and grow through life transitions and use my art as a documentary tool, and Blink’s outstanding catalog and online promotion gives my artwork a national voice and audience for my journey.
