My acadamic background started from pre-degree course from Calicut University. there after I recognised that my area of interest lies in the field of art. So I joined an institution called Universal Arts at Calicut and studied the fundamentals of arts. Soon I turned to mural paintings and joined Guruvayur Devaswom Institute of Mural Painting. Famouse mural painter Sri Mammiyur Krishnan Kutty Nair was the chief instructor in that institute. I studied there from 1990 to 1995 and obtained National Diploma in Mural Painting. My tenure in the institute gave me opportunity to interact with several veterans in the field like Sri MG Sasibhooshan, Sri G Azhikode,Sri Ajayakumar, Sri Kattur Narayana Pilla Sri Vijayakumara Menon Sri Achuthankutty, who were associated with the institute as visiting faculty. Apart from that I got the opportunity to attend classes and camps organised by artists prominent in all India level,Sri Kunhunni Mash, Sri Kodungallur Madhava Menon, Sri Kalidasa Pattar, Sri Sreenivasalu, are some of them.
After completion of my studies at Guruvayur Devaswom Institute of Mural Painting have done several mural painting works in different places in India ; notable among them are Kumarakom Lake Resort, Amritha Hospital Ernakulam, Sri Kumaranallur Devi Temple Kottayam, Sri Kizhur Temple, Kozhikode, Bhima Jwellary Kottayam. Apart from that, I have done several mural painting works in jwelleries, residences of prominent persons and hotels in Coimbatore,Bangalore,Madras,Hydrabad, Gundur, Bombay, Nagpur, Ourangabad, Jalgone,etc.My individual works have also found place in several camps, group exhibitions, in art galleries are all over India.
I am continuing my personal work in Temples, Resorts, Institutions, and Residences of VIPs. Those in needs my services can contact me. Any institutions interested in spreding mural arts through classes exhibitions or any such form are also welcome.
A mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other permanent surface. A distinguishing characteristic of mural painting is that the architectural elements of the given space are harmoniously incorporated into the picture.
Murals of sorts date to Upper Paleolithic times such as the paintings in the Chauvet Cave in Ardèche department of southern France (around 30,000 BC). Many ancient murals have been found within ancient Egyptian tombs (around 3150 BC), the Minoan palaces (Middle period III of the Neopalatial period, 1700–1600 BC) and in Pompeii (around 100 BC – AD 79).
