What is ART for you? How did it all start?
Art is very precious to me. From the very beginning I was drawn into it. Whenever I start painting I lose track of time. It is as if everything goes blank. If I could recall properly it all started when I was in 2nd class. From then I did not looked back.
How have you developed your career?
I first used to paint on my own. But later I started to seriously pursue my passion. So I did a diploma in arts for 2 years. Then I did my BFA. Now I am currently pursuing MFA.
