ENTER A
NEW DIMENSION

artwork is one of the best expressions of the human soul.
I began creating artwork in 2018, finding a new medium of expression for my creativity, emotions, and life. One of the most profound experiences I’ve had involved getting lost in my first acrylic painting; it was a journey that led me to tears, laughter, and joy. Thank you for viewing my work.

My work spans a variety of themes. Primarily, it involves the story of a young man who is making his way through life without the guidance and wisdom of his father. That young man is me.

Arjuna

Fight, son.

About Project

In the Bhagavad Gita, the epic of Arjuna is told. Over 700 verses describe the dialogue between warrior and Krishna – though the tale is ultimately the dialogue between a man at war with himself. 

I identified a lot with this tale. For most of my life, I’ve been aware that my biggest enemy is myself. 

I tried to capture this idea of inner conflict in this piece, with Arjuna shown in the center of the painting, holding his bow. 

He raises his bow against a large dark figure. However, this figure is little more than his own shadow, appearing to rise up against him.

The various types of yoga are displayed in this piece, including: 

Karma Yoga – the path of selfless action

Bhakti Yoga – the path of devotion

Jnana Yoga – the path of self-transcending knowledge
