About the work

Under water world is always a wonder. There are many species enjoying their life there.They are very attractive and beautiful.Unlike human they are very colourful, can you imagine how many colours can be found under sea? Is it possible for an artists to mix and make those colours manually.. not at all possible.
Shark is always my favorite and there are variety of sharks available underwater. The sad thing I came to know recently is Chinese people catch shark to prepare shark fin soup. The sad part is they catch shark, put them into the boat and cut their fins off when the shark is alive and they throw live shark back into the ocean. The shark can not swim without fin and they sink into the ocean floor. Finally they get eaten by other fishes. So I say no to shark fin soup
