From the Artist:
We live in a real-world but often tend to resort to imagination or unreal. This gives us a break from our day-to-day lives and thus help us add more colours to it. In my case, my artworks give me that opportunity to get a break from routines and explore the realms of imagination. That is why, in my collages, I often deliberately ignore some constraints that were considered in the design process.
When I see a design work, whether it is by myself or someone else, I often like to think, it can be interpreted in some other ways. The interpretation can come through colour, texture, light etc.
In my own perception, colour is not only light, beauty and harmony, but also mental balance, comfort and excitement. In architecture, colour helps to embellish, highlight, illuminate and separate spaces. So, in my works I often use different solid colours as alternatives to different natural elements such as sun, sky etc. Besides colours, I also use different textures to make the image more expressive. I use 3d software with photoshop and illustrator. I do not create them thinking too deep, rather I use the idea that comes to me spontaneously.
