One day a friend just came over to me and asked if i could help him out with his new video promotion.  He works for a magazine company. He wanted me to make different collages on UK which includes fashion, food, current affairs, sports, music and life. I used some online links and recent magazines to go through it. It was good experience. Had fun doing it.

I did this using a metal spray gun and oil colors, separating the painting in 3 different canvas with grooves in between. This was quite challenging for me because many times the shades didn't came out properly. I made that to a friend for his living room which he liked a lot.
This was the first time i used jute and foil in my painting. I chopped down many pieces of jute and foil and stuck them all over the canvas and painted over it using knife and brush. I really liked this one because the red color gives a very powerful impact.

Wall Painting

 Heellooo guys!! Hope you all are having great time. To long i haven't posted anything. Last week i did two wall paintings for the first time. Initially i was a bit nervous that  i don't spoil my walls, but gradually it came out to be good. Describing about the floral pattern, i used brush and acrylic color, only black. First i drew the pattern on a paper and then on the wall using a glass marking pencil. Working on walls becomes more tough then working on canvas or any other surface. Needs a lot of patience and concentration. Overall it was creative and useful. 

This painting was more exhausting than the previous one. I used like 24 different acrylic colors. That's toooooo much i know!!!!....First i chopped different shapes on the mounting board and drew it in a pattern form on the walls. Using knife i formed different textures in each shape which became very interesting. To be more precise the pattern goes a bit on ceiling as well which becomes more fascinating. Enjoyed a lot doing both these paintings.

My, not actually concept, but the area of focus is " CONTINUITY". I bought some A4 canvas board and started working with it. I used Acrylic inks and water as mediums for my work. I didnot planned anything and just started working- mixing inks, dripping them, mixing them with water. using masking taps. I liked it a lot because they were really experimental and had vivid and bright colours.

This are the combinations of small canvases that i placed together to see how it looks in a form of a collage.
These experiments of mine worked on quite well so i though of doing it more on a larger scale. Some of my friends gave a review that "GRAVITY" may be one of my concept. I would like to develope this patterns on some other surface rather than canvase where i feel freedom for colours to flow on its own.


3 days in BERLIN were really memorable days of my life. I didnot wanted to come back to hatfield. We had great experience going around the galleries and museums and even the life of berlin. Jewish memorial was the most interesting place for me. I had a cold feeling gettin into this place.


One of our modules for second semester was a collaboration video project. We could do either installation or performance or video or a combination of all these but we had to present our work in the form of video. I teamed up with Markos Sotiriou, Mary Savva and effy Ioannou.

With our continuous discussions and interactions, we came up with an idea of making huge screen with papers we got from print makin. On the huge screen, we planned of casting shadows and create something like cinematic- theatrical experience. After we had the screen ready, a series of experiments had begun ranging from dancing in circular motion behind the screen and creating interesting shadows to performing live for our colleagues.

Furthermore, we created small experiments, exploring the nature of shadows and the implication of sound in video. We even trid painting on screen through the postures made on the screen by the shadows. All these experiments actually helped us in bringing out some really innovative and contemporary ideas.Our final video though had something which was not in relation with the screen.We wore pillowcases on our heads, went out and started spinning our heads in various places.

 Through working in collaboration, i really had a good opportunity to widen my thoughts and think in more creative and broad way. I also learned how to direct different ideas towards a productive way. From a point of view, this activity is important for an artist to establish relationships and connections with another artist.It focuses more on co-operation rather than competiiton to achieve a shared vision. Overall, with good and efficient team effort, our presentation was successful.


Keith tyson is a british artist (August 23, 1969) and the winner of turner prize in 2002. He works in wide range of media like painting, drawing and installation. Science has always been an inspiration for him. For his latest work, which is an inspiration for me, he poured the paint on aluminium and letting the natural process do the rest.
This is one of tyson's " MATHEMATICAL NATURE" paintings. This means that he has applied the paint to the aluminium, in a mathematical order. The nature paintings(2005-2008) are a mixture of paints, pigments and chemicals which are allowed to interact in specific ways upon an acid primed aluminium panel. For me they are very expressive and playful and at the same time planned and organised. Over twenty nature painting were shown at the Tullie House in the highly successful exhibition which attracted over 6000 visitors. The series makes visual allusions to the natural world, geological strata, cell formations and the cosmos.

I was influenced by the diversity of his style. His colour combinations are very powerful and expressive. His paintings seemed very playful yet scientic to me. The forms and colours are determined not by the artist hand, but by the realtion between specifically mixed paints and chemicals poured at different angels and temperature.


I did two small installations for my studio practice. I collected waste plastic bottles, threads and ballons and tried different combinations with them. It took me a little while to form something interesting. I ended up making a bunch of flowers kind of thing. People interpret this in their own way. My group crits regarding this were good. Its kind of best out of waste.
It was really difficult to fix all them together, but somehow I managed it with the threads. I liked it in a way, because i have used things which people normally throw or discard it. It was fun doing it.

This work is again with the same concept- creating something interesting out of the waste. I cutted a bottle from the lower half and by using a screwdriver i created holes all through the bottle. then inserted straws all over it and even used wires to fix them in a systematic way.
Both of these work seems contrast in a way, like the first one resembles a bunch of flowers and the next one reminds me of thornes on the flowers.
