Like a contemporary nomad, wherever he moves, his life and his art absorb the qualities of the place. Noises, sounds, smells, images, experiences, encounters, and languages of the new environment become part of his daily life and influence his creations. Wherever he goes, he collects objects, natural materials, or handcrafted materials, which become the support for his artworks.
Pradeep started his residency in Auroville on the 15th September 2021.
