From the beginning – Destiny or Passion

Ever since Narayan Sahu was a child, he knew his destiny was tied to the art world, and he experimented with drawing, painting, and canvassing. He believes that the universe is made up of small particles like sand, and hence what better than a natural medium than sand to create anything wonderful and creative.

In his words, he puts it this way "As a child, I was mesmerized by sand and used to draw pictures on the sand and one day during the high tide a wave-lashed and wiped everything. This fascinated me and gradually, I started drawing quickly before the wave could come and wipe off everything. I use to stand and watch until my drawing completely disappeared, realizing that everything is temporary and provisional."
