My current body of work examines the visual dynamics of the roadside bazaar. Our Street Bazaars are surrounded by visual stimulation, noisy visual chaos of vendors, hawkers. These vendors, hawkers dominate busiest urban landscapes. Here, a whole new world of images, sounds and gestures is evolving and gaining ground. Visuals of roadside stalls anticipate and announce the cultural and technological shifts. These street vendors offer a critical viewing of the strategic role of popular Indian imagery from the bazaar "not as an object to be seen or a text to be read, but as a process wherein social and subjective identities are formed, bringing in of a new trajectory, while retaining its cultural traditions.
These vendors seem to reflect a scenario in permanent state of transition and moving life. My works aesthetic delineates the complex inter –relations of India’s urban & semi urban scenario.
