STUDIO CITY, CA, United States
Human connection is at the root of my art. I am a medical doctor who has become an artist. Driven by the need to express and share thoughts and emotions through art, I began painting about fifteen years ago. The common element along my creative journey has been humanity. As a physician, I’m deeply concerned about people’s well-being, both physically and mentally. As an artist, I’m inspired to create socially relevant, authentic art and share it. Based in Los Angeles, I am exploring human identity through my abstract, figurative oil painting. Bold, saturated colors and organic shapes help me express my thoughts and feelings about humanity, the evolution of self, and how self relates to others. I like to work in series and usually spend nine months to a year on a particular topic. The interconnectedness of humans, each with their unique yet familiar story, is what has inspired my latest collection. While the focus of my work is oil on canvas, experimenting with other materials is something I enjoy. Reading, writing, and sketching are an integral part of my creative process and influence the painting that happens in the studio. Communicating thoughts through art is a primal human need for me, and that’s why sharing the work is essential. Art is communication. Whether it be a stand alone painting or an installation, my work is about providing the backdrop for a dialogue to occur.
