My Mentor

Life is a long journey and you never know what it has in store for you on the next turn. My transition from realistic to abstract came as an unprecedented one which I never expected. Now it has become my way of expression which I relish with lots of love and satisfaction. Thanks to Prakash Bal Joshi Sir, who not only made me realise my potential as an abstract painter but also showed how freedom n spontaneity of abstraction can quench my artistic thirst. As an artist I always believed that I have honed skills for realistic art work , my first love. But you need great visionaries to make you see things which you otherwise miss to see. It is great vision and foresight of sir who made me realise that there is much more to explore in art. One can keep on exploring it by making it part of your life . My interaction with PBJ sir made me realise that when your art is connected with life it becomes a real search of your own identity . This portrait of my mentor is a tribute to him. It is a promise of me moving on to abstract painting and touch people’s heart through my work. Abstract background of this painting is not only significance of my transit but it also signifies creative struggles of PBJ Sir , for him art is passion and unending journey. I will always keep up the trust he has bestowed on me .He accepted me as his first student and today I commit to add new heights to all that I have learned from him. He not only inspires me to be a good artist but also to be a good human being.
