Art has always been his passion since early years and Rahul is enamored by the vibrancy of colors and pigments that abound from the Indian subcontinent. The reds and vermilions juxtaposed between the ochre and the yellow with the blue, his works are deeply connected to themes found in Indian mythology and the social milieu of the subcontinent.

His interests range from contemporary Indian modern art to the varied dance forms from the subcontinent and the wide canvas of Indian mythology. He has experimented with various mediums along the way, and besides the color, background stories and events also play a dominant role in his work. Symbols, gesture and emotion in a contemporary setting portrayed on canvas and paper.

Rahul's artistic influences are later period S.H. Raza, Manjit Bawa and Jatin Das. Their path breaking symbolic and figurative work in the Indian Contemporary Art scene inspired him to create his own method sub texted with a ligne claire style.

His paintings are in private collections in the US and India. He currently lives in New York working on his compilations.
