Kirti Mandir Sculptures
In my art I try and express the simple and serene, with inspiration coming from prehistoric art, anthropomorphic sculptures and functional objects. My work is mostly based on human form. I use a variety of materials including bronze stone and wood and combine modern and traditional techniques. The paintings are made of acrylic paint on canvas as well as on cartridge paper and based on the theme of Equilibrium. The theme of sculptures is Genesis.
