My name is JAGADEESH NARAYANAN, I did my KGCE Fine Arts from Shilppachithra college of Fine arts Pattambi, Kerala. My Art Guru is Shri Milind Mulick from Pune, Maharashtra. I did diploma in Art from Shilpachithra college of Fine Art, Pattambi, Kerala.
As an artist I like to paint landscapes, portraits and fantasy paintings in watercolor and acrylics. The movement of surrealism in art and Salvador Dali’s vibrant imagination and antics has had a deep impression on me. The canvas and the colors are things that I hold really close to my soul. Art is the serenity that I ever desired in my life.
I did my Diploma in Graphic Designing and 10+ Years experience in Web Designing and I have worked in the fields of textile designing, logo, graphic designing and web designing.
In my artistic journey Milind Mulick sir has had a lot of influence on me. From college days I used to follow his style. His usage of fresh vibrant colors and composition has had a deep impact on me. Fifteen years after I graduated from college I was able to meet him personally and spend one month training with him. After that my approach to watercolors and my attitude to art changed completely. One main things I learnt from him was how an artist must truly be. A sentence that he had spoken particularly inspired me ‘Don’t be afraid to face anything, as our journey is long and we have still a lot to travel’. Before meeting him, while painting I feared I would make mistakes but after meeting him I began to paint without fear. I learnt from him that I should first paint for myself and please the artist within me. Because if we are sincere in our work appreciation will always come our way.
