Chishtee croit que l’art devrait refléter directement la vie et l’expérience de son créateur. Elle utilise la nature fragile du plastique pour en faire la jonction; Comme ils se déchirent et se décolorent, son art s’en trouve fané et vieilli. Comme des fantômes, ses sculptures (comme “un père embrassant son fils” ou “un autoportrait barbu de l’artiste”) pendent suspendues au milieu de l’air, légères et tombantes.
Les sacs poubelle blancs sont spécifiquement utilisés pour représenter l’âme de chaque sujet. Un sentiment d’incomplétude pour chaque pièce.
Tout comme l’univers continue à évoluer, Chishtee permet à son art de se déformer et d’évoluer dans sa fabrication.

Chishtee believes that art should be a direct reflection of its creator’s own life and experience. He uses the fragile nature of plastic to make his point; as it rips and fades away, it implies that the figure is also faded and aging. Like ghosts, figures such as a father embracing his son and a bearded self-portrait of the artist hang suspended in mid air, feather light and falling apart. White trash bags are specifically used to represent each subject’s soul. There’s an incomplete-ness to every piece. Just as the universe continues to evolve, Chishtee allows his art to distort and change in its making.
