Across these lands,
Shrouded by mist galore,
Lies a castle tall and grand,
That you and I contrived.



POSTED IN | Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I thought a stream of prose would flow - 
Continuous, from its eternal source.
But as the clouds of thoughts grow sparse,
The words slowly disperse.



POSTED IN | Tuesday, August 30, 2011

A barren canvas stretches on,
Waiting for a stroke,
For the paint that lends it life -
From void to vivid.

 This tiger was created as part of project ARTIGER.

Artist: Raghava KK
Adopted by Arun Kapur

About the artist:

Raghava KK is a self-taught artist, born in Bangalore, India in 1980. His work has spanned genres as widely disparate as painting, sculpture, installation, film, performance, and even his own wedding.

He started his career in 1997, originally as a cartoonist with Indian national dailies, and over the next 10 years, would reinvent himself to use several different mediums. Raghava’s works have been auctioned by the Queens Museum and Christie’s NY (in an auction curated by the Indo American Arts Council). He has been extensively featured by the Indian and international media and supported and endorsed by numerous celebrities and significant figures in the international art scene.

Recipient of grants such as one from the Robin Hood Foundation to create a permanent exhibition of his works in the Bronx, New York and another from the American India Foundation to premier his performance art piece Anthropomorphism in California, Raghava was most recently invited as a guest by the city of Nimes, France to exhibit his works at the Carre d’Art Musee d’Art Contemporain.

He has lectured and taught at several art institutes, including the Ecole des Beaux-Arts (Nimes, France) and the New Hampshire Institute of Art (Manchester, NH, USA).

He lives and works both in the US and India.
