Abel Antonysamy

American Art Collector - - Award Winner -

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.
