Laxman Rao Kotturu was born in 1987 in Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh. He pursued his B.F.A in sculpture from the Andhra Pradesh University, Vishakhapatnam in 2013, and completed his M.V.A in sculpture from M.S.
University, Vadodara in 2015. He lives and works in his hometown of Srikakulam.
The earliest days of his life were spent being brought up in the scenic coastal city of Srikakulam in Andhra Pradesh. It was a haven abundant with the best of
rivers, beaches and forests. This proximity to nature eventually became an inspiration for his works. The manner in which these natural themes convey his
thoughts are helmed with an organic and raw approach in order to grasp and portray nature in its glory.
Laxman’s use of materials transpires in a brilliant manner. The thought determines the kind of material he decides to adopt.
