I am an Indian born Berlin based illustrator and artist.
I like to explore themes and stories of culture, history and mythology through my illustrations.
I am inspired by various mythological epics, folktales, fairytales and comicbook superheroes and how they influence our world view of the "Hero's Journey". As children, we imagine ourselves as colorful and epic heroes within our own life stories, but lose a lot of that growing up as we contrast it against the stark reality that is life.
My characters and illustrations take pieces of the mundane and ordinary and try to restore some of that childhood magic by injecting the whimsical fantasy and epic qualities of mythology into them. I believe that we are all epic heroes, within our own special stories just waiting to be told.
My inspirations: Jon Burgerman, Christoph Niemann, Christopher David Ryan, Dschwen, Parallel Play, Sanjay Patel, Hey studio, Studio Fludd, Jim Lee, Adam Hughes, Frank Quitely, Valmiki and Vyasa.
