This is my second art initiative about Art and Environment which is called “Sound of Forest II”This art initiative is more about community development and public participatory art awareness and understands about issues regarding culture, Environments with contemporary artist. Which is a direction in our civilization A dialogue among all the distinguished artists, sightseeing, adventurous,explore and Drawing and painting will be followed about artists area of curiosity associated to our wildlife,culture and Environment and whatever they feel nearby contiguous, what they observe there in the forest ,hills, may be different sounds, various surprising images and an objects, which will be interesting towards our Workshop. When we talk about our environment, Ecological balance and wildlife this is very much vital these days due to the globalization, identical standing of our second survival in our human society, nature and wild life. We must respect our countryside as well as Gods creations.

Why I am chose this place in Uttarakhand, Mukteswar and Ranikhet Hills, Forest where the artists will come and stay for 3night 4days at a resort/Local Guest house where the dignified promising artists will explore the region along with the adventurous environment having fun and discussing about their various art practices and the different forms of art in the deep forest. In Uttarkhand Forest is a place to explore the beauty of nature and its significance with plenty of resources along with the local culture,artmaterilas,traditional folk culture.

After,visited to this place  for the last 16 years spent in Delhi, I realized how interesting it is here, so close to nature and away from the maddening crowds and the noise and pollution that is increasing day by day in the Metro Cities. There are lots of areas to explore in the new medias of art that is what makes me think why not start a community art practice which will be an impact here for cultural difference, we will involve local school children and one day we will take responsibility to train to local school going children as well as local people to engage about contemporary art as well as method and materials techniques that’s why artist should come here and interact with natural heritage and surrounding and local public. Working together for a common cause will positively be beneficial for humanity for society at large.

This Workshop will take place in many different parts of India with a diverse body of artists and the most expecting project is ‘’Karlapat’’, district Kalahandi, Odisha which will be in early 2021.

I am an Contemporary artist. I do versatile work., my work are highly detailed. I use of colours is expressive and nat natural which defines the subject with perfection. The content and I do painting useing various techniques subject of my work are based on past experience. I subconsciously filter these experience and bring themthem out visually in an abstract figuretive manner, the total image comes forth as intricate drawings which reflects my subconscious mind, the themes are based on love, fantasy and hunting although these are not literally depicted, daily expriences from life influence my work, this is essence of my work while producing my work I do not consciously set about making an image. Some time I draw picture of my Inner world. Which in turns make me fill strange and mind bogging.. My vision and variety which is distintly done in his own unique manner and medium……..
