The 8 years in Paris has given me an opportunity to cultivate and further enhance my creativity. I was constantly in search of new ideas and technique related to the surroundings. Upon return, the emphasis was to present the experiences and ideas in a more simplified form of art. The idea of combining Printmaking with Sculpture, Visual Art etc, into a form of installation Art became my objective. The idea is to open up new dimensions for the Art of Printmaking.
