I was only ten years old when the magic world of color was first revealed to me. It came in the year 1945 with assorted Indian inks of different ranges; it was my first experience, the experience of handling this medium with its magical effects, and so my life went on... Thanks to University, my travels, my studies, the exhibitions, the press and my friends, every day and almost every instant brought a new experience. In my profession as an artist, painting as an art and as a medium of creation knows no end. But then another element came to add itself to color, and my life found a new focus, in the blaze of light! Color, light, space, time, the whole cosmos and all existence, these come together as the ultimate experience which inflames me every day in my works. I speak of days, for the nights no longer exist for me. Light fills my soul with multicolored dreams on the road to the portals of paradise itself. It leads me to the Creator of all things, the Creator who has allowed his creatures to become in turn creators. I speak of creation in the domain of the Fine Arts, and here I speak of painting in particular. Every work is a poem, for art is poetry "par excellence". At every dawn I must watch the sunrise and let light flood my soul as it bathes the universe. I am a messenger of love and of light, being one of the many children of the sun. May the sun live long in us and show itself by the light it sends; such is my daily prayer.
