I was born in 1994, Hyderabad, Telangana ,India. I completed my graduation in sculpture discipline from the fine arts department at Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University, Hyderabad, 2016-22. I am pursuing my post-graduation in sculpture discipline from the fine arts department of Sarojini Naidu School of Arts and Communication, Hyderabad.

My works are unconscious gestures mediated by mechanical components. These unconscious gestures are perhaps a result of incompatibility of my reality and the orders of communications. The attempt is to recreate certain elements that I take from the void within me and communicate through sensory experiences like visuals, sounds and mechanical movements.

My work gathers experiences within the viewer of a calm distress through the movement and sounds produced by material. The world around me provided me with a lot of material which is discarded, those materials include both mechanical and electronic. These discarded materials have a possibility of function with very little and careful intervention. But, I want to go beyond those functions and let the material function in a way that may make us realize the nature of our existence. There is an impulse within me to communicate and share what’s happening within and around
