B.B. Raghavendra has been working with this style
since 15 years, understanding its traditional
values, improvising on its ancient techniques, modes of
drawing and propagating this form of art through teaching
and exhibiting his works. A recipient of many prestigious
awards including State Award and Mysore Dasara
Mysore traditional paintings
are created according to the rules and customs followed
since decades. But Mr. B.B. Raghavendra
stands apart in his creation of painting in this style.
He has expertise the
technique and style in such a manner that he express his
new ideas and experiments very rapidly within the frame
of traditional style and achieves his uniqueness. If we
observe keenly his works, we can find the new architectural
forms, realistic images, anatomical perfection including
3 dimensional figures, highlighting the
subject and its feeling. While most of the artists are isolating
the painting itself, Mr. B.B. Raghavendra
is trying to abridge the traditional and modern painting
without compromising in Mysore traditional style.
He has started a new
kind of approach and perception through his unique expression.
He has long way to go to achieve his goal, for which he
should be encouraged. Let us do it first.
He welcomes all suggestions. Any correspondence can be done
