K.G. Subramanyan:

Born in Kerala on 15th Feb 1924, Subramanyan was among the leading artists who sought to explore a post -Independence Indian identity through art.

His belief in the revival of Indian traditions led him to create a new artistic idiom and his practice incorporated drawing, oil painting, watercolor, murals and sculpture alongside toy making, set design, glass painting, pottery and weaving.

In a career spanning nearly seven decades, Subramanyan’s work has been exhibited in over fifty solo shows, including an extensive 2015-2016 exhibition by Kolkata’s Seagull Foundation for the Arts in collaboration with the Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai. Subramanyan was also an inspiration to generations of students as a member of the Fine Arts Faculty at MS University in Vadodara. He passed away in Vadodara on 29th of June 2016.
