Sharjah Art Institute, UAE - 3 years certificate course in Fine Arts
EXPERIENCE / SKILLS
I came to UAE in 1995 in connection with putting up a factory for making Glass bottles. It was only destiny, otherwise after working happily for thirty four years in the same company, I was preparing for settling down somewhere in India.
I had been fond of Arts and wanted to be a painter, but those days it was not supposed to be a good career & my parents did not agree. The vacuum of not doing anything for Art remained deep in my heart.
This was year 2001 when my work contract with the Glass Company in Dubai was over & I joined Sharjah Art Institute, studied there for three years and finally passed out with full certification.
I did lot of painting work on fabric, porcelain and canvas but in 2013 - 2014, I decided to choose Canvas as my medium of spreading joy with Colors.
I had few of my exhibitions in Arab Cultural Club, Ministry of Culture, Sharjah, during 2015 to 2017, which were well received & welcomed and were covered in Press and Sharjah TV. During this period, I got connected with many online galleries and a few corporate houses for sale of my work.
As I am writing these lines, I am 78 and paint daily for 4 to 6 hours.
I am member of Emirates fine art Society.
Very fortunately, Art is not my livelihood and it’s my wish & desire that the Colors of my canvas touches the heart of each & every Art lover without much of financial compulsions. By spending wonderful time with Colors and Canvas, the cost of my work has already been recovered. The rest all is bonus and frill for me. I don’t aim to reach to those Intellectuals for whom two plus two is four only. I believe in total freedom when it comes to Art and try to get connected through human heart.
You will find most of my paintings as smooth effortless creation blessed by some Divine Power being presented to you with a wish to bring lot of Good luck and joy to you.
