I’m an engineer, passionate artist and artrepreneur, based in Melbourne, Australia. Specializing in Indian folk art. Founded International Indian Folk Art Gallery, to help Indian folk artists & revive Indian Folk Art.
Building the largest home for Indian Folk Art.
I was born in Venkatagirikota, a South Indian village at the juncture of three states; Andra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Despite being born in that village, I never lived there. My father was in the Indian Air Force so we kept hopping from one city to other. Bangalore, Pune, Delhi, Madras (Chennai), before finally settling at Trichy.
Travel has always been a part of my life. Having visited over 35 countries so far, I’ve come to admire a variety of cultures. But the best part of all my travels was observing people and their connection to art. It was universal, every country had distinct art that conveyed volumes about their culture.
