about artist

Born in 1938 in Tiruchirapalli in Tamil Nadu, K. M. Adimoolam moved to Chennai, where he enrolled in the School of Arts and Crafts. After completing his Diploma in Advanced Painting, he started working on a series of black & white portraits of the great freedom fighter, Mahatma Gandhi. He came in contact with noted Tamil writers and associated with them for illustrating their works. He gradually moved from the figurative to the abstract. The versatile artist is at ease with drawing and painting, often blending the two. Several of his solo and group shows are a testimony to his artistic skills. He has once stated: “My heart and mind are filled with nature, at every moment. It is a wonderful experience; this love and awe that provoke my ever creative and anxious mind to penetrate the reality that lies beyond our vista.”
