Rajesh Ram

Born in 1978, in Jharkhand, the young and talented artist studied at the Patna School of Art. He took part in an Art Appreciation Course at the National Museum, New Delhi. The artist’s select solo shows include 'Hybrid', Anant Art Gallery, New Delhi and Kolkata (2008); Project 88, Mumbai (2007); ‘Kaala Akshar Bhains Barabar’, Anant Art Gallery, (2007), and ‘Open Sculpture Show’, the College of Art, Patna (2003). What sets apart Rajesh Ram’s work is the way he brings to life mundane images to reinterpret them with a rich palette and meticulous detailing. The photo-realism of his paintings and sculptures seeks to capture the truth conceptually and as a pure artistic expression. His large-format canvases are populated by characters caught up in day-to-day situations.;
