ABOUT THE ARTIST

Bala Bhakta Raju Born in 1974 in Hyderabad, Bala earned a BFA degree from DMS Lalitha Kala Maha Samsthana, Mysore. I have drawn Ganesha since I was a child, living him, breathing him, dreaming and expressing him in countless shades and the many moods of him, with brush and acrylic. This series of Ganesha is in both grays and colors, with more defined lines and vibrant tones.

 

His paintings are based on mythology, particularly the forms of Ganesha that earned him his name and fame. He experimented with many abstract forms of Ganesha using watercolors, acrylic colors, and oils. According to him, the human and the divine are two sides of the same coin. Later he developed angular forms of men and women and expressed the emotions of him. Through the fish and the parrot, he expressed the bond with the human being. He uses harmonious colors to represent togetherness.

 

Ganesha became an inspiration very early in my life. An idol that became an ideal and then my inspiration, says Bala. Postures range from meditative to aggressive, from contemplative to playful. There is a lot of color and joy in the works of Bala Bhaktaa Raju.

 

He began his career in the creative departments of Advertising Agencies and later adapted painting as a mode of creative expression. but it all started a decade ago in the professional field.

 

He won the Hyderabad Art Society Award in 2007. The artist has exhibited his works in many places in India.
