Channa’s inspiration comes from his very own native place, defining a travel journey. He has traveled through Bike, Bus, Car and sometimes Train. He tries to freeze unique moments of the place and then transfer them into his artworks. “The movements are suspended in a distant time, or appear to come from the imagination of the viewer.” He want people to see his work, and think as if these are plain photographs or postcards but when they tend to observe them closely they would realize the details of a graphite drawing and coffee wash as an experiment.
