Konda Srinivasa Rao is organising Vision, an exhibition of paintings, from 18th June to 17th July, at the Kalahita Art Foundation, Nagarjuna Hills. The works showcased in the exhibition can be identified distinctly as a series of landscapes, city roads and village houses.
Konda Srinivasa Rao was born in 1979, in Krishna Rayudu Pedapudi of East Godavari, and started painting since 1997. He drew inspiration from the works of the Great Masters of the West, that he saw in the Salar Jung Museum during his frequent visits.
Rao worked in several institutes doing reproductions of Ravi Varma and other great masters, but found no satisfaction in his occupation. He migrated to the city not just to earn a living but to pursue his creativity, as the city had material; experience, interaction, galleries and museums. He could sense his own talent even as a child while watching other artists at work.
Rao mentions his works as semi-abstracts, as he creates a point of entry into his image with identifiable forms, his brushwork is spontaneous and forceful, and his colour palette is true to the environment that he recalls in his imagery.
Rao has participated in many group exhibitions within the country, but this is his first solo exhibition. Please contact the venue at 2335-0543 for further details.
