Keshav Venkata Raghavan, an artist from childhood, lives both in Chennai and the world of Krishna’s Leela. He works at “The Hindu” as a cartoonist, and continues with his passion, drawing and painting.
With guidance of ‘Chitrasutra’, (from the Vishnudharmottara) a treatise on painting, he sketched episodes from the Indian epics, revealing a treasure house of ideas, leading to an exploration of the symbolism contained within them. Every single day, he posts a watercolor of Krishna, to the delight of his many admirers on Facebook.
His work has been featured in one-man shows, ‘Krishna Leela’ in Chennai and ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’ in Bangalore.
