His concepts work around the idea of provincial agricultural life, once the source of our nation’s culturally influenced products. The rapid disintegration and subsequent obscurity of local culture is a driving force for Akhil. His ‘Rice series’ is an endeavor to trace the remaining memories of our provincial culture which is being wiped out, in the minds of the spectators. The persisting farmers who are the employers and manufacturers of those equipments are also included in his paintings.
