About Artist

Ramesh’s passion for art was evident at a very early age. He was born into a business family and thus business was the obvious choice of profession. So he graduated in Commerce. However mid way in his college days, the Art bug caught up with him and that changed the entire course of his life. He has experimented with various mediums like Oils, Pastels, Acrylics but finally came home to the spontaneity and wonderful effects of his Beloved medium- Watercolour. Technically, his paintings are rooted in the Impressionistic realism as he depicts people, places, seasons and times of the day as they actually appear. Like all the old masters and contemporary greats of this genre, it is light which is of paramount importance in his work. His mastery is typically rooted in two main elements- his impeccable drawing skills coupled with his dexterity with the technical aspects of the medium which give him the freedom to take on any daunting composition in watercolour. Ramesh’s art has been featured in several prestigious international art magazines. He has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions and his paintings have been widely acquired all over the world by art collectors. The artist is based in Tamilnadu, India.
