Sivabalan was born in a historical town of Kumbakonam. He pursued his Masters in Fine Arts from Government College of Fine Arts, Kumbakonam.

Sivabalan’s art is steeped in India’s rich culture – especially the south as he was raised in Kumbakonam. Here inspired the daily goings of the people, he drew in crisp and bright colors, against a white background of women doing puja, a procession of deities on oxen carts, families taking blessings from the temple elephant among many such other instances. What is truly unique is his departure from the earth tones, which many artists use to depict Indian villages and his confidence to use colors as is seen in people.

He uses watercolors, oil, and acrylic, drawings, mixed media on canvas to create unique tones and messages in his work. Viewers are immediately transported to the scene that is depicted on the canvas. One can hear temple bells in the distance or see the elephant raising his trunk or feel as if he/she is the one standing in a vegetable marketplace seeing women laying out their wares, talking to each other or just sitting, waiting and watching too.

He is a well-known contemporary South Indian artist whose work is a source of inspiration and pride for Indians.

Art Advisory

ART ADVISORY

We understand that choosing art is an art in itself, be it for your living space as home decor, your boardroom, for you collection, or for your investment portfolio.

It is always difficult to tell what kind of palette would go in with your walls and architecture, what would make that living room expansive, majestic or cosy as you prefer it.
