Mookkaiya K is a South Indian artist who creates paintings of traditional nature. His work is based on ancient epics, bucolic getaways, and animal characters, and he makes profound use of colour to elevate an artwork above convention and established patterns. Mookkaiya paints exact figures of animals, however, the production on paper or canvas narrates a tale of enchants, charming musings and fables of our country. His works transport viewers into lanes of stories as much as they highlight the place in which they are displayed. The artist manages to advance a sense of tradition in his works borrowed from old temples that trickle into young minds.
