Artist of the month, April 2019: Kandi Narsimlu
Lipstick and bindis, amulets and jewelry, sarees and shopping bags—Kandi Narsimlu’s subjects represent the contemporary within the rural milieus of Telangana. His women are large eyed,
slender, sexual. The men smart, sharp, serious. Always the clothes are a riot of color, depicting the visual splendor of rural India.
Kandi is an accomplished artist, having won several awards, including a gold medal from the Hyderabad Art Society in 2011. He has exhibited at 30+ individual and group shows across India. His works occupy pride of place in several private and public collections including the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad. He has an MFA from Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture
and Fine Arts University, Hyderabad. In addition to acrylic on canvas, Kandi has also worked on fiberglass sculptures and abstracts.
