His art works tell stories about a new beginning which continues forever without any limit. The colourful abstract art works created by the artist give the illusion of incompleteness but this very character make the art works more appealing and meaningful to the spectators.

The artist uses lines that can lead to a certain linearity but he has cleverly blended the colours on the canvas. Each canvas presents a fresh perspective through different shades.

His paintings do not scream for attention and have little to offer to the casual, hurried viewer. But for the patient observer, they are an enriching experience.

To him, abstraction was the medium as well as the goal.

“At first glance, my paintings appear to tread the mid-path between figurative and abstract as one tries to understand the several possible forms that emerge from the mosaic of patterns,” Akhilesh told IANS. (IANS)
