During this critical lockdown time, I stay in my hometown Saurashtra, Gujarat.
This is the most challenging time for all in the world. But as an artist, I try to continue my Art practice at my village. In this work, I tried to capture the present situation of people. People are suffering from COVID 19 and locked at home. Today's world looks like a lockdown. Though during this phase few things are good like reduced pollution and people spending time with their family.
I am from Junagadh district, Gujarat. I am belong to farmer family. Recently I am freelance working in Ahmedabad.
I did my Bachelor in painting (2015)and Masters in printmaking (2017)at faculty of fine arts,M.S.U, Baroda.
I influenced most of the my native place Saurashtra and my farming background. I draft recognisable scenes and objects to hint specify human presence. There is a pattern it representation which hint the scenes of drama through the use of light and shadow. Also I influenced by Indian mythology, childhood memories , socio-political issues, and farming landscape.
