Abstract Paintings

R Solomon


Joined Craft Tatva: September 2021

My journey as an artist began in my early years as I dwelled in the beauty of my surroundings and kept translating them into artworks as I matured through adolescence Thus began my art journey. I did my UG and PG in Fine Arts- painting in Government College of Fine Arts, Chennai in 2006-08. Travel is my holistic inspiration and learning. I was working as a professional artist for many commissions from companies and individuals. I work in different media like drawing, painting, mural, stained glass and designs. I have participated in many group shows and solo shows across India. I have won National and State Awards. My paintings are embellishing many walls everywhere in India and other countries. I am also into teaching for the last Ten years.

Focus Areas: Seasons, Cities, etc.
