About Artist

Muralidhar, an artist by birth, self taught, started drawing from childhood itself. Born and brought up in Kerala, moved to Karnataka, South India and lives in Dubai since 12years. Drawing and painting is my passion and hobby. Participated in lot of competitions in school and college days and got prizes in district and state level competitions. A post graduate in Geology and Graphic Designer by profession started my career with Artsworkshop, Mangalore, Karnataka. There i developed my clay statue making and painting skills. 7 consecutive years prepared Lord Ganesh and Godess Sharada statues as a part of cultural activity. After working with Artsworkshop for long 12yrs moved to Dubai and joined yellow pages as a Graphic Designer in 2005. In 2008 joined August Branding as a Senior Visualiser and 2010 moved to Driving Force, a sports marketing, branding, design and event agency as a Senior Designer and working till date.
