  • About The Artist
Son of the late modern master J. Swaminathan, Harshvardhana's inclination towards the arts seemed almost natural. He gave up his successful career as a bio-scientist in 1993 to pursue his love for painting. 
This self-taught artist displays his vast creative vocabulary in his heavily textured but plainly coloured canvases. Deeply influenced by tribal art and symbols, Harsha Vardhana creates abstract geometrical forms; inverted triangular structures are constructed within carefully demarcated areas of colour, which violently cut into one another – some blend in while others create obvious scars, bringing a distinctive character to the piece.
