“Using digital tools, I create images that represent the voice of the downtrodden across the world. The moving thoughts of pioneering leaders like B R Ambedkar and Jyotirao Phule have shaped my idea of social justice and individual freedom. The use of simple lines and an austere colour palette enables me to emphasise the need to establish equality and non-discrimination in our society.”
