Background

At the age of 18, I joined Mercedes Benz training center at TELCO, Jamshedpur, India. All the technical exercises charts were made by me because I was good at drawing. Once I saw a highly polished Mercedes Benz car. I saw my own distorted image on the body parts of that car which were polished like a mirror. This was the reflection my own face which was coming distorted. This incident gave a strike to my mind and immediately I went to my room and took a highly polished Chinese pen cap and placed it on a white card. I started trying to make a figure on the card in order to see true and correct inside the pen cap as result of the reflection. After few trials I was able to draw some correct figures which were looking meaningless on the white card. this was the beginning of this for of art. By that time I was not aware about the history and name of this art form but I kept on trying to get some interesting figure. After few months I made my first Anamorphic painting to be seen through the pen cap was of a nude lady.later I resigned TELCO and joined TISCO as a craftsman. Gradually I developed this technique and was able to make portrait. The first Cylindrical Anamorphic portrait I made was of Mr. J.R.D.Tata, which was gifted to him on behalf our department. this practice continued and I made several portraits to the distinguished personalities in India and abroad. Over the years I have achieved enough perfection in this form of art. I am the holder of Guinness World records for the Largest Anamorphic portrait in the year 2004 and have registered name into the Limca Book of Records in India. Aprt from Cylindrical Anamorphic, I am master of Scratch art. This form of art is also rarely available.I do free hand scratch art on stainless steel or aluminum plates. recently I have created a cylindrical Anamorphic painting with Scratch work on the steel plate instead of using colors on the canvas. I strongly believe that my artworks will be liked by anyone who sees it because he/she will see for the first time. I am old to explain things but still young enough to prove by showing my work. I have done several exhibitions and presently running my own Art Studio in India at #1401, GLOXINIA, VIJAYA GARDENS, BARIDIH, JAMSHEDPUR, JHARKHAND, PIN-831017 (INDIA)
