A play of interpretation with stories and poems helps the artist uncover and discover many artistic techniques. (S)he creates many webs with lines and colours and weaves meaning into it. A Riyaaz aims to capture the essence of a word at its height. He journeys from a word to its essence the way its author must have reached and then find it again by reconstructing it pictorially. This repeated practice of search for meaning through visuals is Riyaaz.
