01. Tell us about your show?
That time, I was around 5 to 6 years old. I stayed in a place where the steam locomotives use to come. And I was always running out to watch them, and hours and hours I watched and sketch them. This is my old memory of childhood. I try to recall that memory and translate into the canvas.
Presently there is no Steam Locomotive around us. Now you might be seen in the museum or other places as antic. My objective is to present those locomotives to the new generation through this show.
It’s Nostalgia of YOU & Me…
02. What is the story behind the title of the show?
Nostalgic is always an emotional memories of childhood, which we never forget, which is always being with us. Those exciting memories always feel you happy, and … Makes you sentimental…
…Same thing is happening with me. I never forget those memories of my early days. Where, I spent time with the locomotives. Day by day I was running to the locomotives. Still now, I feel the steams of the locomotives, I love the sound of whistling “…Choo… Choo… Choo…”
Those are my happiest day in my life… Those are the memory always recall me… and encourage me to do series of canvas of the steam locomotives …
That’s why the title of the exhibition is “Nostalgia of Steam Locomotives”.
03. How important is mood in your Painting?
This is an impressionistic approach in my work. I try to portray the environment of the steam locomotive workshop of 70’s.
04. How would you describe your technique & style?
The technique & style is very simple, this is an acrylic painting on canvas. Here, I try to use the method of color perspective and contrast of lighting, best composition in all over the painting. The form and space division is very strong. Mostly I use the monotonic color palate like; Sepia, Gray, Black & White. Just because of, the paintings are looking more of mature and old.
05. Who are your inspirations?
I am inspired by myself, who is always working head, optimistic, and believe in own philosophy. My philosophy is “devotion in the work, producing the best work, achieving the goal”.
06. What is the message from your work to the audience?
Presently there is no Steam Locomotive around us. Now you might be it’s seen in a museum or other places as antic. I try to recall those images and translate into my painting.
My objective is to present those locomotives to the new generation through this show.
The message is very simple; please come “Watch it, believe it, Feel it from your insight”.
…You fall in Nostalgia of Steam Locomotive…
