Singh finds inspiration from lives of subaltern communities like fishermen and factory workers. “The spaces in which these communities exist, their tools, the whole ambiance inspires me. Their challenging life conditions are extraordinary, enough to stir one’s imagination” he explains. Another recurring theme in his works is the upheaval and destruction which characterizes contemporary metropolitan life “During my last 30 years in Delhi I have seen the city change at a very fast pace, the changes are fast and cause a lot of upheaval. Take for instance the construction of the Metro rail how much debris and displacement it causes” Singh explains.
