Achuthan Kudallur, a writer turned painter is an abstract artist and continues to evolve his abstractions. His works signposts a different approach in his abstract mode of communication and there is never a dull moment in his canvases, making his works visually energetic. Over the years that Achuthan has been painting his abstraction, he has never traveled the beaten track of his works rather each canvas has remained a journey exploring proactively his perceptions, feelings, emotions and sentiments and translating it through his colours that bears affinity to his moods and emotions. His colours are equally evocative as he subtly plays with tones and shades with his reds, browns, blacks and glimmering whites to offer kaleidoscopic enchantment.
Travelled to UK, France, Turkey, South Africa, China, Dhaka, Russia and Nepal.
He lives and works in Chennai, India.
