I am a self taught artist and was able to rediscover in myself the talent and passion for highly detailed and realistic artworks. I aspire to create art as candid as eyes could see, capturing every intricate detail of my subject and meticulously portraying them on a sheet of paper. My subject interests mostly include celebrities, fiction characters, automobiles etc.
I have completed my B.Tech in Mechanical engineering graduate from National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK). Worked as an Aerospace engineer and as a Research Assistant at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. I believe science and art are closely associated, both which involve ideas, theories and experimenting, be it in the laboratory or the studio. For example, A great personality like Leonardo da Vinci is best known as an artist whose works were informed by scientific investigation. Presently, I am pursuing my MSc in Aerospace Engineering at NTU, Singapore.
Currently I am involved in perfecting different techniques using charcoal and graphite pencils. My hobbies include painting, gaming, cycling, listening to music and reading. Trying to manage my time as a student and an artist, I am optimistic about many more art works in the days to come.
