biography

Born: India, Magattukara Village, Kerela

Bose Krishnamachari , stand prominent among modern Indian Master painters. An artist highly influenced by bold use of colours, painting in a psychedelic abstract form. His works are true representation of Indian Contemporary Art. Colours play a vital role, as they appear an ocean of rainbow squirreling with their self. His paintings are colourful and vivid contrary to his installations, but both leaves an impression of epicness, which makes all his works captivating to the viewer. He curates and take art projects as he strongly believes in promoting young art.1. 2010 'No', 1 x 1 Contemporary, Dubai 2. 2009-10 'LaVA', (Laboratory of Visual Arts), a Travelling Installation Project at Gallery BMB, Mumbai 3. 2008-09 'To Let – White Ghost', Kashi Art Cafe, Kochi 4. 2008 'Ghost', Aicon Gallery, London and Bodhi Art, Mumbai 5. 2007 'LaVA', (Laboratory of Visual Arts), a Traveling Installation Project at Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Kochi, Baroda and New Delhi 6. 2006 ‘Ghost : Transmemoir’, Aicon Gallery, New York, 7. 2005 ‘Exist’, Jehangir Art Gallery, Museum Gallery, Mumbai
