Bapu's Art
Bapu has a unique style of paintings. He is known for his economy of strokes which indicate no background litter and an absolutely free hand drawing. Whether it is Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Bhagavatha, Amukthamaalyada or Annamaacharya Keerthana or Dasaradhi's translations of Ghalib's Ghazals, the central idea of his paintings is captured and presented in an evocative fashion which is very simple yet heartening at the same time. Steeped in tradition, his works depict the true Indian and Telugu culture.
