BIOGRAPHY


Art by A. RamachandranAchutan Ramachandran Nair, widely known as A. Ramachandran, is a preeminent Indian artist of large-scale paintings and bronze sculptures that echo the visual motifs of Indian classical art. Born in 1935 in Kerala, his early works depicted the socio-political struggles of his home state in a modern, abstracted style. Later in his career, however, Ramachandran was profoundly influenced by the vibrant culture of Rajasthan as well as its miniature painting traditions, leading to the whimsical scenes of flora, fauna and mythological imagery for which he became acclaimed. He has also cited inspiration from Kerala murals, Nathdwara paintings and Ajanta cave paintings.

A. Ramachandran studied art at Kala Bhavana (Institute of Fine Arts) in Santiniketan, in addition to earning a Masters degree in Malayalam literature and later a doctorate with a thesis on Kerala mural painting. He has exhibited extensively in museums across India as well as abroad, including the United States, United Kingdom, Brazil, France, Singapore and South Korea. He has received numerous prestigious awards including the Padma Bhushan, India’s third highest civilian honor. In 2002, he was elected a Fellow of the Lalit Kala Akademi, and in 2013, he was granted an honorary doctorate by Mahatma Gandhi University in Kerala.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What is a serigraph?
Serigraphs are a type of high quality, limited edition screen print made on high quality paper in collaboration with the artist. A different ‘screen’ or stencil is created for each color, and then ink is pushed through the corresponding stencil onto the paper. This printing process is repeated multiple times, using a separate stencil for each color. A single serigraphic print can have as many as 25 colors or more. Each print is then numbered and signed by the artist.

Are the serigraphs signed?
Each print has been hand-signed by the artist and also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
