The artist's roots go back to rural Uttar Pradesh, symbolized by idols, legends and mythology.“When I paint or print, our mythology haunts me. It's sacred and vigorous and in spite of infusion of other cultures and religions, the flow is mythical, something that is deeply rooted in my mind and soul,” he told Metrolife.
