A. Rajeshwara Rao’s paintings are about transition. Through his work, the artist reminds us in a quaint and humorous manner of the incredible influence popular media has on our culture. Rao depicts simple, everyday people and their many ambitions; he illustrates the psychological desires of the physical self. His compositions are magnificent, quirky and meticulous. The artist’s vibrant palette shares a strong dynamic with his intricate
weave of lines and forms that it brings to life.
Rao draws his observations of people and their stories, recording these experiences with photographic precision; however, ultimately choosing to depict them in a strange and make-believe world. Even though the artist has serious concerns about these issues, his representations of them are witty, dramatic and full of humour. His multi-faceted compositions instantly remind the viewer of their own dreams and fantasies.
