Animesh says the painting is inspired by the works of a South Indian artist. In the original, the lion's mouth was agape. In Animesh's rendition, he painted it with the lion's mouth shut. This allows the piece to convey less aggression since he wanted to display it in his residence.
Animesh is based in Kathmandu, Nepal. He’s always harboured a keen interest for fine art. Animesh even pursued a degree in the arts for his undergrads from Singapore.
Currently, he is engaged with both an automotive business and art pursuits.
