Space is everything. And controlling space is our main problem as artists. When we lived in a smaller house in Chikkadpally [a locality in central Hyderabad], I would be painting in the room and my wife and kids did their chores around me. Our family is used to it, but such an arrangement doesn’t suit everybody. Having an individual space to work in is very important. I too have tried to operate from a studio space away from home. But I have had to start working from home again. The reason is that many of my earlier canvasses were small in size and I could comfortably work on them while sitting. Now I paint on bigger canvasses and the constant bending has been causing severe back pain. So I need to take long breaks in between work.
