Thota Thar­rani

Cosmopolitan (India) - - ADVERTORIAL -

Thota Thar­rani, pro­lific painter has never hit a pause but­ton in a ca­reer span­ning more than four and half decades. The scale, scope, and pro­fes­sional sweep of his work trans­verse styles, medi­ums and themes mak­ing the task of putting to­gether a de­fin­i­tive trib­ute a dif­fi­cult one. When he was hardly twelve years old and art fas­ci­nated him more than his text books. He made a num­ber of con­tri­bu­tion draw­ings to­wards the Madras Art Club which was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated and led to him en­rolling him­self as a stu­dent in the Gov­ern­ment Col­lege of Arts and Crafts. Then he went to Paris to study print mak­ing un­der S. W. Hayter. He then started host­ing one man shows from the age of 20 and till now has had more than 50 shows to his credit the world over. To­day his travel across the globe has drawn sub­stan­tial ac­claim from the US, France, Ger­many, and United King­dom. His ver­sa­tile cre­ations stand tall at des­ti­na­tions in France at the Archives Mu­nic­i­pals Bordeaux, Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Bordeaux. He is an artist whose cre­ativ­ity and style re­flects in his works. His work con­sists of paint­ings, mu­rals, pa­per col­lages, wooden mon­tages, and in­stal­la­tions and so on. The use of colours ex­tends from the splash of bright hues to monochro­matic in his lat­est se­ries which rep­re­sents his ver­sa­til­ity and his abil­ity to blend his cre­ativ­ity and imag­i­na­tion that is in­nate in him. His zeal for cre­at­ing some­thing novel and unique is what keeps him go­ing.
