A South Asian multidisciplinary artist living at the junction between play, theory and psychology. Sprinkled with a essence of neo curry dust. A fairy elf princex, at the crux of neither and all genders. I aim to create as a means to understand and conceptualize the human mind alongside its various complexities. With a hint of dreary and dark, a dash of laughter and light my approach to composing a piece is very free form. I love to experiment and fabricate dynamic juxtapositions, which have a systematic yet messy ordinance.
