The Horse is the symbol of courage, virility, self-reliance and power, they can sweep away everything in their run, can get over any obstacle. They are untamed, uncontrollable and unrestrained. They are Free…

The Horse is one of the major themes in my art. When I first ‘mounted’ a saddled horse I was only one year old. It is the first and the most vivid recollection from my childhood. Along with image, I have preserved forever the ‘feeling of the horse’.

I paint the horses in different media like oils, watercolour, charcoal… I studied equestrian art in college and later in Academy, but mostly I learned how to portray horses when I was at Equestrian Centre. I passionately studied the muscles of the horses when they are running, standing, jumping. But mostly I am interested to convey in my art what they feel, their personality and individuality.
