Welcome to My World !


My connection to Pollachi runs deep - it's where I met my wife, surrounded by breathtaking mountains, dams, coconut trees, and lush paddy fields. Every visit to Pollachi is an opportunity to immerse myself in its beauty, capturing it through my camera lens or with quick paintings.

On a recent trip, my wife suggested we visit the renowned Palani Temple to worship Lord Muruga. Equipped with my minimal plein air kit, we embarked on the hour-long journey from Pollachi to Palani. Though my focus was on the road, my mind wandered, mesmerised by the scenic landscapes begging to be painted.

After reaching the temple, my wife urged me to join her in worship. However, I couldn't resist the allure of capturing the early morning beauty of the paddy fields in a painting. Explaining that this, too, was a form of worship for me, I dropped her off amongst the bustling crowds and set out to find the perfect spot.

After navigating narrow streets and seeking guidance from locals, I stumbled upon an open paddy field that spoke to me. As I painted, the ever-changing light danced across the landscape, offering endless possibilities. It was a meditative hour, etched in my memory by the scent of the wet fields and the symphony of nature surrounding me.

Whenever I find myself in Chennai, there's one ritual I never miss—the early morning drive along ECR beach to Mahabalipuram, catching the breathtaking sunrise. Accompanied by my nephew, who resides in the area, we embark on a fun car drive indulging in the best local delicacies and exploring the vibrant surroundings.

During one such drive, I stumbled upon a broken, abandoned boat, which inspired me to paint. With swift strokes, I adorned it with colours, leaving my mark amidst the tranquil coastal scenery.

Embracing the serenity of the moment, I also relished the simple joy of feeling the cool ocean waters lapping at my feet—a perfect blend of art and nature's beauty.

When it comes to outdoor painting, I often find myself drawn to static subjects that tell a story, especially since I need to capture them rapidly. Lately, I've been obsessed with this truck shed near Whitefield, Bangalore. It's a bustling hub where various trucks come and go, and the ground is frequented by pigeons feasting on fallen grains—a sound that resonates with me as a pet lover.

One weekend evening, with the sun dipping low, I took the chance to visit this spot. After securing permission, I settled in and began to capture the scene before me.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle, my attention was drawn to two trucks, each with its own distinct identity. Despite the constant arrival of more trucks, I forged ahead with each brushstroke, rapidly capturing the evolving scene.
