From youth Sri has had a keen interest in art history. His obsession with the masters from around the globe is balanced by a love of pop culture, animation, comic books, graffiti, hip hop and punk rock.
Sri’s subject matter includes an ever evolving myriad of surreal characters, symbolic narratives and abstract flowing imagery rooted in the subconscious. His painting process begins organic, gestural and free form. His pieces resolve in an academic Western tradition.
