How do I start my vision? When people laugh at something, I find it interesting and I enjoy it. My thoughts are based on sarcasm and my child-like nature. I train myself to draw unrealistic forms. Instead of depicting the original character of the object, person or situation; I try to create something unconventional with my own perspective. I twist and turn things before I put them in a painting. My process may seem weird to some but I love it and I can relate it to our society very much. My entire work is based on my sketchbook practice. First draw in my sketchbook, sometimes I draw from nature and sometimes from memory. While drawing I merge natural forms with man-made and human forms as well. Questioning my surroundings and questioning the visual is my natural instinct. References for my work come from cartoon characters, animals and birds, fashion magazines, newspaper clippings and also from funny clips and videos that I happen to see. My sketch-book practice includes collage work as well, where I juxtapose the printed image with my own drawing or painting.

This particular work brings together two ideas. One comes from the colonial times, when the idea of punishment for an Indians was to have tomatoes thrown at them in public. My protagonist in this painting again is dressed in formal attire but is very comical and even hilarious for some of my viewers. The other idea is reflected in the two other figures and the text on both the sides. They are pointing at the protagonist. These figures are based on children with speaking impairments.
