Much like the life from his village, Laxman’s paintings are also monochromatic. With his rustic colours, the artist draws a comparison between the lives of the people and their poor state. We see people agonising about their lives. Their clothes, and settings illustrate their oppressed and powerless lifestyle.

Born in 1965, Laxman was born and raised in Kadirenigudem. He grew up seeing the rural life of a draught affected village around him. He earned his Bachelors and Masters in Fine Arts from the College of Fine Arts JNAFAU, Hyderabad.

His artwork consist of nostalgic paintings of the people he grew up amongst. Even though, Laxman is now an established artist, living in a bigger city, he has not forgotten his roots. While most of the other stylised figurative artists use a vibrant and colourful palette, Laxman’s paintings are monochromatic. The intricately sketched village people, living their ordinary, mundane lives are Laxman’s subjects. He painstakingly draws all the details of these people; their traditional clothes; lungi for men and printed sarees for women, their neatly tied hair buns, moustaches, turbans, etc. in black and white, resonating with the simplicity of their lives.

His backgrounds are usually single coloured rustic hues of mostly red, green or yellow. Perhaps, this is his way of portraying the extremely monotonous lives of the people in his village. The simple floral and patterned sarees of women, checked or lined kurta of men, the grief and worry on their faces, will immediately tell you the tale of Laxman’s draught affected village. His subjects are mostly in a group, often brooding over their problems. One can feel the pain and worry of the villagers through Laxman’s paintings.
