Hailing from a small village in Tamil Nadu, N.S Manohar began observing and absorbing the domestic architecture and ways of life, particularly by the Brahmin families, from a very young age. Brahmins constituted the highest position in the social hierarchy in his village and their everyday practices, customs and rituals sparked off Manohar’s early works. A trained watercolour artist he enjoys working with many transparent layers of colours which evoke the myriad moods and emotions from the scene before him.

“I was particularly fascinated by the thulsi plant which began to occupy the central position in my compositions. Another element which caught my attention was the humble goat; In fact, I have worked on a series of artwork focusing on this domestic animal which I believe is a symbol a symbol of victory and has a strong religious significance in Hinduism. I want my canvases to be challenging to the viewer. As humans we all have preconceived notions about an everyday object, my aim is to challenge this preconceived notion of recognition and memory by displacing and re-contextualizing familiar objects”.
