I am 59 years old now. I began painting water colours and oils while at The Doon School, Dehradun, India under the guidance of Rathin Mitra. Rathin did excellent linework and has sketched most of the significant monuments of Calcutta and also many national monuments, cities and towns. While in college in the early 70s I developed as an artist when I began sketching with a furious and passionate frenzy. That is the time I broke out of traditional forms and discovered Picasso and his contemporaries. Around this time I created a large number of watercolour landscapes with quick brush strokes creating patterns and colours that fascinated me. I also began experimenting with distorted figures and faces. Around this time I saw the artist Srinivas creating paintings with enamel on ply. I was quick to discover this medium and experiment with it. I also began working with oils and oil pastels. Between the mid 70s and 80s I remained in a dormant stage. In the late 80s and 90s I discovered my skills with black ink pens. I started with crockels but the ink would dry up, so I picked up the ordinary Pilot pen. And since then I have been making a large number of pen sketches. I also did a few oils. The problem was that I did not have the time. Painting was not my occupation. Nevertheless, I have created a body of work which viewers find interesting and original. I hope you find it interesting too. Since the last few years I have also taken to photography. My son Karn Singh is quite extraordinary with forms and colours.
