Know Your Artist- Kappari Kishan

By Fotocons Admin On 25-Dec-2019

If you have little interest in art, I bet you won't miss knowing about one another gem in our treasure of artist. I am talking about none another than Mr. Kappari Kishan. His famous work series Rustic and Divine is appreciated worldwide.

Kappari Kishan a practicing and promising artist from India. His paintings depict women & girls from Telangana with culture backdrop. Specialization of my paintings is hairstyle of Indian women, Buddha & Jathaka Tales. His narration through characters is not
region-specific but also moves beyond to include an even more profound message of peace
and harmony.

Rustic and divine

A series of works by artist Kappari Kishan

The journey of Kappari Kishan as an artist started when he was
appreciated by his teacher in a school for a flawless drawing, which was
done as a part of the studies. The attention and applause that he
received inspired him to pursue drawing and painting consistently and
devotedly. His stronghold on the brush was soon apparent to his friends
and they started requesting him to write political messages on the walls,
he graciously accepted such work. Gradually, he got engaged in painting
temple walls with images of Gods and Goddesses and also rendered a
few portraits on a commission basis.

His love for painting beckoned him to concentrate his attention
completely on his creative strengths. He decided to support himself
through his artistic endeavors. He thus accomplished his academic
studies in fine arts, by pursuing his graduation and post-graduation from
Mysore, Karnataka University. At present, he is a freelance artist and art
instructor at Balabhavan ( Government of Telangana) where he teaches
the intricacies of painting to children with passion and dedication.
A versatile artist, he works in varied media, like handmade paper,
canvas, wood and executes murals in varied materials and sizes. While
one section of his body of work concentrates upon the traditionally
attired, dusky damsels of Telangana the other works are based on
recreating the spiritual and meditative strengths of Buddha, the
enlightened one. Both series of works are rendered in stark, clear linear
quality and a flamboyant color palette. The popular festival of
Bathukamma from the Telangana region often gets portrayed in his works
along with the ritual in which the women carry a huge mound of
iridescent flowers to present to the Goddess. Some of the recent works
amalgamate the two kinds of compositions together. A serene image of
Buddha is composed along with the village women as worshippers. The
rustic ethos is blended along with the divine radiance of God. The
long, plaited hairs of the damsels are rendered in detail while the faces

of the figures are unseen and initiate a sense of inquisitiveness in the
viewers.
