Abel Antonysamy is from a village near Pondicherry in India. The village’s people work hard, while it is also filled with cows, bulls, cocks, hens, paddy fields, various colored trees, birds and different climates. These elements have always been attractive to the artist, even before he knew how to paint.
After his school studies, he went to a college of fine arts for five years where he learned more about techniques, especially watercolor, and painted portraits, landscapes and still lifes. After that, he specialized in watercolor as a professional artist, and now he travels frequently to Europe to participate in international watercolor festivals and to teach his techniques to other artists.
He won the second place award from the Serbian watercolor biennale in 2013, and he has been invited to many cultural and art festivals in France. For him, studying nature and observing it are the best ways to learn more to develop his art.
