About ArtistBorn in 1978, in Jharkhand, Rajesh Ram studied at the Patna School of Art in 2002, and in 2007, he participated in an Art Appreciation Course at the National Museum in New Delhi. An award winner at the 17th All India Art Contest, Nagpur, the artist has held several solo exhibitions, the most recent being 'Hybrid' at Anant Art Gallery, New Delhi and Kolkata. The photo-realism of Rajesh Ram's paintings and sculptures captures the truth conceptually and as an artistic expression. His large-format canvases, populated by figures caught up in everyday situations, encourage the viewer to reexamine objects and circumstances that would otherwise appear regular or mundane. The artistâ€™s application of rich, deep colours brings the characters that populate his stories to life. However, their almost expressionless faces do not give the viewer the slightest hint of what may be playing on their minds. It is only the vibrancy of Ramâ€™s palette, varying from earthy to vivacious that gives any suggestion of a mood in his work.
