About Artist

I was born in a sandy village in veeravanallur near Tirunelveli, since childhood had immense passion for the art. I was initially trained by Mr. Nagoor Miran, art teacher in Amir Jamal Higher Secondary School. I was also groomed by Mr. Ilayaraja and Mr. Siva Balan in Chennai. I graduated from the Government College of Fine Arts with a master’s degree in 2009. I have explored various forms of paintings such as original, abstract, figurative, Realistic, Landscape and contemporary paintings in oil and acrylic medium. I also specialises in water color paintings and my recent work “OLD CHENNAI”, depicting Chennai in the 1950’s was appreciated by art enthusiasts and professionals equally. I have also worked as Assistant Art Director for the film ‘PASANGA’ that won a national award for the best feature film. I have exhibited my work in various art galleries across India.

Trident with Shiva as Ardhanari (Half-Woman) In this hybrid form of the deity, Shiva assumes his own form and that of his consort, Uma. The right half of the figure’s anatomy depicts Shiva with two arms-one resting on his bull mount, Nandi, and the other holding his battle-ax. The other half of the figure represents Uma, whose hand once held a flower. The image is combined with the trident, Shiva’s weapon of both destruction and grace.
