[Interestingly, the idea of the horizontal quadrangle on the floor came from Vladimir Nabokov's 'the Gift'. I had read that book ages ago but a segment of a sentence had stuck in my memory.
'As he crossed towards the pharmacy at the corner...[he] saw... a blindingly white parallelogram of sky being unloaded from the van...'

I realized the origin after I finished doing the yellowish-white patch.]

As those familiar with my work can attest readily, it has little (or nil really!) commercial potential.

So, three years back I tried a new approach to increase visibility.
It seems to be working.
I have been camping in India for a little less than 7 weeks now and think I  have managed the new experiment alright. 

Now four major institutions have 32 of my paintings for real in their premises. No money is involved. Paintings remain my property. They are on a loan of two years to the institute.

One of them is an Astrophysical and Astronomical Research institute-specialising in elliptical galaxies!
Others are more modest - graduate training institutes - university departments - of Technology,Liberal Arts, Languages. They have a turnover of about 2000 students per year from 23 countries among them. 

I am glad they found some of my work worth displaying at their establishments.

Some validation!

The paintings you are about to see are not all decorative. They try to depict the real world around us.

Attempt is mainly to document collective miseries of peoples and investigate social pathology behind the misery. The dominant political discourse today is dictated by the state, market and media - none bothered about the weak. The alternative to this discourse seems to drift towards being self-obsessed - hedonist, reclusive or esoteric. So there is a need to reiterate that hunger, poverty and violence still afflict a vast majority of humans in the world.

The paintings endeavour to state this problem. They will have served their purpose if they make you pause and think. May be, then you would be kind enough to leave some feed-back on any of the paintings you fancy.
