|Srinivas born in an Artisan family,is like his father before him, multi-talented. He is a Veterinarian, Software Consultant by training and a violinist. But it is to art that his soul migrates. His training as an artist was essentially informal - preferring to learn by observing his father, while suffering the criticisms of his mother. He is happiest with a paint brush in tow and revels in his work.
What began as a childhood hobby has blossomed into a passion, an irrefutable habit. Srinivas enjoys experimenting with various techniques, developing new ones of his own, for a truly unique style. He is drawn to the abstract in his figures, enjoys the visible texture of both the techniques and paints he chooses. His strokes are sure, tinged with a visible arrogance of the brush strokes coupled with a sensitive and meticulous depth to his work.
Srinivas is a true artist, with no pre-conceived notions about either the subject matter or design technique. As his brush dips in color and is applied to the canvas, then and only then does he begins to visualize the forms and develop depth to his creation.
He is adept at working with many media and is equally at ease with oils, pastels, charcoal and acrylics. His favorite though is acrylic media, as he believes that spontaneity comes more readily available through this synthetic media and praises it for both its quick drying and oil color effect.
Srinivas paints on different sized canvas but prefers to paint on large canvases. The landscapes and vast open fields in America have influenced his current works. The subjects of his paintings depict nature, distant fields, and horizons. He portrays this immense beauty in vibrant colors.
Srinivas is not new to one-man shows. He has exhibited as a solo artist in such major Indian cities and has gained respect as a talented young artist with a unusual eye.
His works reside in the with friends, his art circle, Public School, and with public and private collectors both in India and USA.
Currently his work is shown in:
Elizabethan Gallery, Baton Rouge, LA.
Just Art, Edison, NJ.
Transitions, Mandeville, LA.
Arlington Gallery, Arligton, TX.
Atlantis Gallery, Worcester, MA.
