Artist Statement 

As an artist, Abhay enjoys associating modern-day problems with everyday objects in life.  Abhay’s  works focus on concepts of psychology and fear in the Digital realm. The unintentional thoughts in Abhay’s head are a combination of surreal objects in a realistic environment. Abhay’s pieces are based on the personal perspective of every human’s life and how it differs from the third perspective. There are times when both of them are right. Our personal actions are justified from the heart but judgements differ when heard from a third party. 

 

The thought that amuses Abhay the most is that how will our actions be justified when it comes to humanity. Somewhere far away if our lives were played as movies even the best and worst actions might have a parallel perception. The carousel of life consists of some mainstream elements such as love, anger, fear and death but we forget the importance of consciousness and destiny. The two energies : one coming from the soul and the other from the world. At a specific moment and time all these energies align and lead to something which we call as “ Destiny “ Why can't we psychologically see these things all together ? It might be impossible in life but I believe it's possible to lay those emotions and analogies as a composition which makes this series of illustrations as “ Surreally Extraordinary” The outputs in Abhay’s piece act as a bridge between his intended thoughts and the audience's perspective which gives it an ambiguous narrative
