Raghavendra Rao K.V. – Painter / Sculptor

Raghavendra Rao K.V. was born and raised in Bangalore, Karnataka (India), where he also attended Ken School of Art. After completing his diploma in painting, he received a fellowship in painting at the Kanoria Centre for Arts in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. As a young emerging artist, he participated in ‘Four Young Contemporaries’, curated by prominent artist, Rekha Rodwittiya, which highlighted new artists in the blossoming contemporary art market of the early 1990s in India. He explored the idea of installation art along with his peers since its early days, and participated in numerous solo and group shows in India, Europe, and North America. He has undertaken residencies in Switzerland, Scotland, and Mauritius, as well as numerous locations in India itself, and a major collaborative art festival in Lille, France. He began teaching at Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore in 1997, and has taught there occasionally since 2012. He splits his time between Bangalore and Vancouver, where he lives with his wife and two children.

We are grateful to Raghavendra Rao for allowing us to feature his art on Surrey Muse poster for February 2018. The poster is designed by Art Director Mariam Zohra.
