The motifs in his work stand out as similes of his experiences of the place he belong to, further juxtaposed with his contemporary existence in an urban setting. Through the graphic medium, he elaborately keeps translating. In his works he has narrated the transition of his life from one place to another, from one stage of life to the next.

The artist is like a proud vanguard, constantly plays his witty asides and bangs the drum for throwing out the old definitions and old boundaries to look at production of culture and diffusion of images globally.
