Ram Kumar

Brief Profile: Ram Kumarís paintings are like long poems, easy to read but not easy enough to decipher the coded message with casual viewing. He is easily inspired by the layers of accumulated memories, generated and carefully stored in his mental data-bank, about his long association with the holy city of Varanasi spent often in company with friend Husain. In the limited world he lives in, Ram Kumar's paintings freely use sub-conscious images, and fond memories of the past etched deep into the sub-conscious. Seashells and marine remnants, water lilies in bloom and the rounded spread of its delicate leaves, and such other relics that smells of environmental tranquility appears in his canvases with unpredictable regularity. While these alone are enough to offer an accumulated image in Ram Kumar's paintings, the artist in him starts to explore other, mostly pictorial, avenues to create an art that aspires to scale greater heights by incorporating a multi-spiritual approach to his paintings.
