In his own stylised vocabulary which is deeply rooted in the Indian folk, artist Thota Laxminarayan experiments on his canvas to contemporise the rural idiom. Without diluting the essence of his environment he creates visual challenges in his compositions. The serene appearing folk in his paintings are executed in an exceptional economy of lines. Although portrayed in a vibrant palette the color scheme remains subtle and well coordinated. His spectator never finds a dull moment as each canvas is a social documentary of country life. Humans coexisting with the flora and fauna are appropriate indicators of green lives living in harmony in their milieu.
