Ganesha, the elephant headed Hindu god of beginnings, revered by intellectuals, bankers, businessmen, artists, scribes, and authors alike. Ganesha is the remover of all obstacles.
These Ganesha icons were influenced by the temple sculptures of south India. These gigantic sculptures inspired me to capture their features and while painting these I felt the process was surreal. From painting routine city scapes, shifting to these Ganesha images was a welcome diversion and helped me relax. It was almost therapeutic and I felt as though I was dwelling into my subconscious mind and hunting for lost images.
I consider these as a transition of my journey from city scapes towards finding new iconography, which have succeeded in reaching into the deeper levels of my heart.
