When asked about Vipul Salvi, Ashish says proudly, "Here is my newest discovery, He is an artist of our times and we will see him rise to great heights as an artist."

A very philosophical Vipul avers, "We like to believe that we are free and unattached to life's corner stones. But if we stop and think, we realize we do have a lot of strings anchored to life - To our experiences, our memories and our little secrets. In an attempt to explain this irony, I give you, Strings Attached", after a pause he continued "For me life is about balance. Good and bad. Black and white. And the train constantly makes a journey between Station Happy and Station Sad. My paintings don't fall under any classification but are an honest story of personal experiences and the chords they've struck within."







Ashish, who has given lots of artists to the art world and also made some of them today's masters, has a tremendous faith in Vipul's future and wishes him all success.
