Working with dry pastel on canvas as medium, his inspiration stems from the natural environment of his country. He always felt an attraction in the soft, natural delicate tones of butterflies, flowers, feathers. His great dexterity over the application of dry pastel helps him lay bare this softness in his unpremeditated forms.
Artist presently lives in Bhopal.
