Metamorphosis of an artist - A Life story of PaintingssteemCreated with Sketch.

in painting •  last year

  Since age the age of 15, I have moved to many places meaning more schools, friends, hobbies and in that mess, my love affair with the paint got sidelined. Many years later, when I moved to London, the empty walls of my apartment reminded me of the things missing in life, paintings being at the top of the list. So, I bought some paintings from the boot sale. But these paintings didn’t really express the inner me and therefore forced me to start painting again after so many years. My initial attempts after all this time were the following two acrylic paintings.  



See, when I paint, it is an experience that, at its best, is transcending reality.

  Truck art has always fascinated me. The transformation of a visually boring vehicle into a piece of art itself demands a great deal of ingenuity. So, I gave a shot to mimicking the truck art on the canvas.

Thank you. I find that our truck art seems to be neglected internationally and would like to promote it more

you are absolutely right!

I love this art. You are not an occasional painter - it was just against your will to be moved around a lot and you take a long time to gather your energies for a painting that transcends reality. Your work is moving, innovative and beautiful! Keep it up! I have never seen truck art - we have "art cars" in California and I have seen a few here in Colorado...

Thank you for your encouragement. Your comment has made me realize that some people might be interested in truck art as well. Would be posting about it soon again
