He is born and raised in Mumbai (Bombay), city of extremities - where there is abundance of wealth, opportunity and almost everything, yet emotions like love, loneliness, anxiety, etc., stay afloat in the vast emptiness that lies in the eye of every man. It is perhaps the hope and faith that keeps everyone moving.
s p a c e plays a significant role in his art practice - the breathing space for every living creature. His debut solo exhibition 'silence must be heard' held at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai (Bombay) India during early 2012 consisted of drawings, large-scale paintings, employing ephemeral material: leaves on the floor and everyday object: mirror - titled 'ask yourself'. This series of his work raises questions about humanity in its social-ethical context.
His works are in prestigious individual collection with art connoisseurs and reputed organizations in India, UK, Germany, Italy, and USA
