Here is our favourite Indian artist: Raja Ravi Verma
Raja Ravi Varma was a renowned Indian painter who greatly influenced the future generations of Indian painters. Coming from a naturally blessed family of creative folks, pursuing a career in arts was not an aberration for young Varma who was encouraged by his uncle Raja Raja Varma to make a career out of painting. Trained by several professional artists, he finally emerged as a classic Indian painter who excelled in depicting scenes from Indian literature and epics such as Mahabharata and Ramayana. What gave him the edge over other painters of his generation was that he fused Indian tradition with European technique thus coming up with a new genre of painting in India. He brought out on canvas several folk and traditional art forms of India. At a time when India was looking for inspiration to free itself from British rule, his dazzling oil paintings of India’s glorious past became highly popular In his career, his works were exhibited in major exhibitions across the globe for which he received numerous awards.

Text His dramatic depiction of mythological characters and incidents stood out the most, and influenced cinema and calendar art. Raja Ravi Varma is known to have developed a style that depicted the iconography of the Indian Gods and Goddesses and the mythical elements associated with them. In addition, he translated this iconographic style to the portraits of several Indian royal families around the turn of the century.
http://www.saffronart.com/sitepages/ArticleDetails.aspx?Articleid=145&PageNo=1 Today, he seems relevant to me not just as a great artist - whose works indicate the beginning of modernity in Indian art as he consciously merged the eastern and western techniques of art - but also as a metaphor for creative freedom itself.
He painted beautiful fabrics and materials with striking colour contrasts. Together he brought about an Indian renaissance of his own.
http://www.mocomi.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Mocomi_TheZone_ArtCart_Art_RajaRaviVarma_01.pdf The artist also transformed the simplest vignettes from life into masterpieces of breath-taking beauty. Raja Ravi Varma's works are considered a priceless treasure of immense historical value.
Raja Raja was that most extraordinary of companions, intelligent and keenly aware of his brother's artistic needs, since he was a prize winning painter of landscapes himself and yet completely subservient to the greater talent before him. He was not just his brother's left hand, but his eyes and ears as well.
