He finished his Master’s in Fine Arts in 2004 from S.N School of Fine Arts, University of Hyderabad. His works often revolve around the duality of urban existence.

This constant conflict between the need to preserve the environment and its destruction for its resources forms the central theme of his works. He takes inspiration from various sources like Miniature paintings, Chinese landscape paintings as well as Japanese screen and woodcut printing.In 2003 he received a Cash Award from Tasmiya Art House, Karnataka. He also received the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, U.S.A. in 2012. He has had two solo exhibitions namely ‘Eye on the World’ at Bombay Art Gallery, Mumbai in 2006 and ‘Man Made’ at Bombay Art Gallery in 2008. Some of his group exhibitions include 'Hommage to Matter', Tao Art Gallery, Mumbai, 2009; 'Persistence', presented by The Osmosis Gallery, Mumbai at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai, 2007 and '(Sub)Urban Texts', Gallery Espace, New Delhi, 2007.
