Description: The start of the aura series took place when I got away from the city. Being away from Varanasi make me realize and recall many things about the place. As I was standing in Golconda fort, the visuals of its aura became clear and inspired me to create the drawings. There have been many occasions earlier as well where I have created drawing with lines. But it is at the Fort that I realized the actual meaning of it. It’s as if I could see the vibes of all the energies present there in the form of lines. While traveling, old architectural forms, such as old city roads and buildings, temples, palaces, etc. capture most of my attention. I felt them alive with the vibes of thousands of living beings that have visited those spaces, since the existence of those stones. Every place has its own vibes resting in its emptiness. I portray those vibes through my lines and attempt to create movement in the static Architecture forms and historical buildings.
