I am an Indian Artist currently studying in London. I had developed a practice of drawing my observations and the thought behind it into the sketchbook. Since then I believe it is an integral part of my practice.
We are all, in some way or the other, affected or influenced by violence in our lives. We may even proliferate it, either knowingly or unknowingly. I am intrigued by this human behaviour towards nature and fellow humans and try to critique it in various ways through my work.
I am very influenced by the surrounding - what individuals see around them, what they acknowledge and what they are indifferent towards. My work mostly draws that is around me to create a narrative which shows the vehemence, that I have witnessed and felt, that is somehow universal. My intrigue is manipulating the fragility of the subject.
This the book consists of little anecdotes narrated through the combination text and drawing. It has some bizarre little things that one may find it dark. There is a strange kind of humour in my work. This humour is a defence mechanism where I can talk about a lot of subversive and offensive things that merely are my observations. I work with an array of materials but the sketchbook is home This project has brought me back my comfort zone where I drew my bittersweet thoughts and experiences.
This tiny book has given a larger than life boost to my practice. The purpose of my work is the narration of emotions and one might witness it in this tiny book with subtle laughter.
