The artist has created numerous installations using shells of various types, mostly mussel shells. In Goa, the mussel shells are bright green on one side and silvery-white on the other. He plants thousands of mussels shells on the sand in patterns, mimicking the ocean. When the viewer moves around the installations, the colour changes like a silk carpet. Here his inspiration is the ocean, the theme is the ocean, the medium is offered to him by the ocean and his canvas also is the shore. The works celebrate the role of the ocean as a medium of inter-continental cultural diffusion. Oceans have been highways of culture, responsible for exchange of materials and ideas across continents.
