K R Santhana Krishnan

As a typical south Indian artist from Kumbakonam, Santhana Krishnan believes in treasuring the heritage and culture that his 0ancestors built. What speaks more about our culture and heritage than the adobe that we live in, he asks. The home speaks about the past, present and future of a family and the most vital aspect to any home is the front door. His work revolves around this entrance. He paints wooden, soot covered, kumkum and turmeric marking covered doors because they fascinate him more in comparison to the modern state of the art technology driven doors. He believes that each door has story to narrate, and there will always be people interested in that story.
