Ravindra Kamath (Ravi) is a self-taught artist from a small village named Panjadka in Karnataka, India. Ravi’s art draws inspiration from the natural world - both to create elaborate nature scenes as well as develop motifs and imagery for his abstract works. He considers the plight of the common man, especially through the eyes of society, using surrealist themes and imagery through works in acrylic and oil.
After moving to America in 2002 with his family, Ravi was dealing with the separation from his culture, traditions, and his relatives back home. Many of his earlier conceptual pieces were centered around these feelings of change and disconnection. Alongside, Ravi created a large collection of detailed landscape and floral paintings. He has since ventured into abstraction and has created works marrying together his more realistic style to create surreal works.
Ravi’s work carefully dissects emotion through nuanced symbolism and elaborate compositions. His technical ability to create renderings of fantastic worlds that enforce feelings of nostalgia and warmth enables the viewer to escape into.
