Artist Profile :
Born in 1970 at Bangalore. He is a Science graduate and his initial training was in Industrial design where he learnt the various methods of production, design, structural-integrity of materials and first-hand shop-floor manufacturing. His Inspiration for his art comes from Biology and Geometry.
Geometry is a medium that gives him the freedom to express. He creates prototypes in paper by cutting and folding before the actual production ensuring that he has the detailing in place.
He has received the Facebook India Award, holds a Guinness World Record for the world’s largest sculpture using photographs and has a CNN certificate for video contribution. He attributes the Guinness World Record achievement to an ingenious design breakthrough that was inspired by nature. His art has been commissioned in India and in Singapore, Canada and Switzerland.
He has held a Solo show at the Renaissance Gallery, Bangalore in 2009; The “Glade” series – solo show, at Active Canvas Gallery, Bangalore in 2007 and 2010. He has displayed The “Bull” series at the Park Hotel and at The 100’ Café-Gallery Bangalore in 2006; In aid of Cancer patients (CPAA) at Ista in 2007; ‘Chitra Kala Parishat’ (CKP) Bangalore in 2007; In aid of The Society for Child Development, at Travancore House, New Delhi in 2008; In aid of ‘Prabhat’ at Colonial, Bangalore in 2008; Group show in aid of MSSI by Renaissance Gallery 2009; Galerie Sara Arakkal’s Annual Show 2009; Apparao Galleries UB city Bangalore as part of ‘Airtel Bangaluru Habba’ 2010; TCC Singapore 2011; Affordable art fair Singapore 2013; TCC Singapore 2014.
He says “As turn of events would have it, I was drawn towards creating sculptural forms around the year 2002. With seemingly unrelated experiences and interests. Connecting the dots of all my past experiences I began exploring forms in nature through the eyes of an engineer. It fascinated me that mathematical algorithms existed in various aspects of nature as did principles of engineering…I began to see a picture now. In creating sculptures I sought to discover these congruencies. The various animal forms I created brought me on a path of discovery of evolution; the similarities and differences among species and the human perception of it…”
Worm-holes are the physicists' explanation of a 'super-reality’; where reality as we know it is warped. Where time and space are no longer mere linear quantities but have transcended common sense and reached a dimension of serene-spirituality.
I chose to represent this transcendental idea via sequential geometric patterns that are absolutely defined as per the position in its space. This gives way to a flow-y form defined by the precision of every cut and fold. Every object seems to have a Geometric predisposition; A way for it to fall in place and be seen. Much like the DNA of living things—where unitary cells fill every material - or like the crystalline structure.
Once I start seeing it this way, I would know no other way of seeing form- in fragments and cells.
This series called ‘the Maze’ is a tactile exploration of reality that is beyond perception….Compelling boundaries are acknowledged and then bent.
