About Artist

I am SUNDARAKANNAN a proud Indian, Born in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India in 1976. living with my family in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India since 2004 Started my painting career in the age of 7, with the proper training from my father a well known painter in Tamilnadu, India (Vasan). with the blessing, tips and tricks of some popular & Senior Artist like Lakshmi narayanan, Ubald, Maruthi, Burma Narayanan, Natarajan and so on. I always preferred to work with Oil on canvas for some days ago, but recently for the past 3 years, Its seem so interesting to me to work with acrylic. always like to work with basic technics but sometimes a little experimenting, works a lot to me. my favourite subject is closeup faces and landscapes, I always love to spend time on it. right now working as a full time digital painter and comic book colorist but always like to spend atleast 10% of my time on manual paintings (that always refresh my mode of interest and thoughts) Its good to share experience and ideas with each other to have healthier growth as a artist and i love to share it... hope all of u enjoy my works :)
