In my self-portraits I am exploring how and to what extent the overall process of virtualisation impacts identity and, more specifically, generates a new variant and dimension of both individual and collective narcissism; studying theories of e.g. Pierre Lévy, Gilles Deleuze, Jean Baudrillard, Vilém Flusser and scrutinizing my virtual self.
My main research is to understand the way kids visualize the world at the age of 4-5. Kids can have an imagination of any adult; the main difference is that adults can visualize things more pragmatic, and only because they are getting bombard with these images every day.
The series of staple works are based on the life that I have experienced in London. The function of staple, which is attaching one thing to another, was used in my work to attach myself to London life.

I am exploring the possibilities of using MAX to create and control visuals with the sounds of the Indian Classical Drum. Through MAX, the visuals and the music complete and complement each other and hopefully become ONE.

My work explores a darker side of romance through different media, illustrations, animations and models, with references to the past masters of that style, such as Gustave Dore or Edward Gorey and a touch of surrealistic ornementation.
Responses and observations on a social and cultural level form the backdrop to my illustration practice. The juxtaposition of unlikely sources, minority, marginalised or vulnerable elements, to seek attention for them. The public environment has proved appropriate to situate the work and has enabled practical as well as thematic development.
