Whenever we meet someone, his appearance is the first thing that gives us an impression of his identity. I believe clothes are the most common aspect of our lives which speaks more about our personality than us. So, my whole body of work revolves around these clothes and their impression on others. It also affects our behaviors and we also manipulate our appearance to create a desired impact. My focus is more on talking about all my experiences that I cannot talk about openly. It gives me a liberty to talk about our social behaviors that are affecting my emotions.
I mostly use gouache on wasli to express my feelings. But sometimes I also work in different mediums life actual clothes and change it accordingly to say things more efficiently.
