ABOUT ARTIST BHASKAR RAO
My landscapes reflect the memories and experiences I have collected from the places I have lived, touched, smelled, heard and walked through. My landscapes are painted from a place of love and gratitude for my experiences of the world. My landscapes are my playgrounds: my laughter, smiles and tears of reverence for beauty are present within them. They give my truth a voice and reflect my most intimate history. Trees have a significant role in our cultural landscape, for they not only yield fruits but provide shade as well and cover and protect the surface of the earth. They have come to play a sacred role. My motif – “The Tree” has remained constant as part of my oeuvre over the years in my career. I reside in Hyderabad.
