Siddharth Katragadda-- Guest Artist

Siddharth Katragadda  was born in the Bangalore, India, where he lived the first twenty three years of his life. He has been painting since he was ten. He believes that an artist's primary objective should be to capture a culture – and that a culture, or ethnicity, can be best understood through its women. He paints colorful and elaborately dressed, voluptous, dark Indian women, paying equal attention to their omnipresent bindis and resplendent ornaments as he does to their draped saris and brilliant blouses. His portraits are as abstract as they are figurative. He tends to abstract away from facial features, and lays more emphasis on the way a culture has sculpted the woman as a whole, especially the colors, which are depicted in brightest of colors - reds, saffrons and yellows – the most essential Indian colors. His paintings are featured on Art Walk-San Diego,, Mixture ShowRoom-San Diego, Gallery Asian Art, TeamGallery and His paintings are in private collections worldwide, including Mani Ratnam's.
 He remains a self-taught artist by choice.

About the Exhibition:
In this current exclusive exhibition (exclusive 2013), Siddharth focuses on two series:  "Bird Dancers" and "Flower Sellers."
"Bird Dancers" is dedicated to the amazing dance forms of India. When he started this series, he was surprised that despite the depth of the classical dance heritage in India, very few Indian painters have focused on this subject. This series is an effort to merge the two art forms - dance and painting.
"Flower Sellers"  is again an extension of his famous "dark Indian women" abstract portrait series from previous years. Apart from flower sellers, he also has a few paintings on fisher women and other rural women abstracts
