In Manish’s paintings he has found expression of his apprehensions of the working of the cosmic world, an intuitive communion with the natural world by the amazing delicacy and deftness of his brush strokes indicating texture as well as form. Viewing his work is akin to that of listening to music or reading a poem – one passage lingers in the memory and reverberates there as the eye passes on to the next. Transitions are so subtle that they are hardly noticed until they are gone. The mood is of one of uninterrupted reverie avoiding monotony Gentle changes from soft washes to firm brush strokes, from diaphanous forms to sharply focused details. - V.R.KAPOOR, GALLERY BEYOND, 2005 He lives and works in Jamnagar, Gujarat.

That there is no other save the one in man’s own nature; all rituals, acts of worship and study of scriptures are not the way. He strives in meditation for communion with the absolute – a communion vouchsafed in rare flashes of blinding illumination. The experience indescribable in words, he evokes by painting in a slow, savoured process of rendering of a plant – a wild landscape or just some flora, his expression of the inner life of things and which could, in term, assist the viewers quest for enlightenment.
