About the Artist


A. Murugesan

Born in Tamil Nadu, India, drawing was a passion for me from my early schooldays. Driven by this passion, I completed a course in drawing from a reputed school in Chennai through correspondence. During my working life I had a chance to visit and experience life in different countries thanks to my wife's diplomatic career.

I was deeply impressed by the Dutch school of painting while in Holland where I joined the Art School in Koorenhuis, Centre for Art and Culture, in The Hague. After completing the basic art course wherein I had fun learning all the mediums,I moved to watercolours and learnt the medium for a year. Since then I have been painting, as we moved on, in different countries.

Starting with Holland, my paintings capture landscapes as we continued our journey through Zambia, Ukraine, India, Great Britain, Germany and now Suriname!

Artist's Statement: 'The freshness and immediacy of watercolours, their translucency and vibrancy always attracted me, Though difficult to master, watercolour kindles my passion and throws a challenge every time I approach the paper with paint. I hope you enjoy the paintings as much I enjoyed painting them!
