East, 2003

My first studio collection happened to be acrylic painting on mostly grey paper or canvas, reflecting the concept of identity in the context of traditional past and modern time in exile. My interaction with a sophisticated and somehow dark history and mythology happened to be through my playful line drawings and vibrant color pallet.
