    M Raja

    M Raja was born in Gingee in the south of India. He is an impactful artist based in Chennai, and studied fine arts at the Madras College of Arts and Crafts. Though he has been painting for almost four decades, the annual visits made to his native town have inspired him and kept the fire for art burning. His village is an experience that steeps him in those symbols of rural India that play out in significant aspects throughout his art. The cultural motifs, ornaments, tattoos, rituals and norms, connection to domestic animals reflect in his artworks. He is deeply passionate about Indian culture, spiritual journeys, ancient tribal tales and nature. His works signify a strong communication with backgrounds of lives and canvases, colours from those walks, and patterns imbibed from segments of their lifecycles. M. Raja is a glorious painter whose art speaks of his mind and matter.
