Chand has pursued fine arts, both academically and through exhibitions, with a purpose to achieve something great in the field. He wants to use his artistic skills to make a difference to the society. The creations of Chand cover a wide range of subjects and have a conceptual approach. He attempts to illustrate his ideas in a multi-layered fashion, such that the viewer dissolves into it and gets an experiential feeling. He believes in the idea of ‘function’ following the ‘form’.
This conceptual art piece titled – “Who Am I?” touches upon the fundamental question, every human being asks, at one time or another, about his/her purpose, identity and true nature. The contemplating man in the painting seems to be thinking about his source and destination; whether he is a crystallised form of his very source; whether his mysterious destination lies just beyond the ephemeral; or whether the seemingly unending path towards the destination is the destination itself?
