I began exploring the depths of drawing as an art student. We practiced from the sketches of Masters like Leonardo da Vinci and Pablo Picasso. I perfected my skills and was made aware of all the 'secrets' of drawing at that age itself, which is why most of my visual proposal are a close reflection of the real material object. However, I have always believed that all art expression is basically an abstraction of real life. Like Picasso said, "Art is a lie that tells the truth."
Even in my hyperrealism, I am essentially depicting abstraction with different shapes. As I always say, I write paintings and paint philosophy.
