About the Artist
N. N. Rimzon was born in Kerelaâ€™s Kakkoor village in 1957 and is primarily known for his symbolic and enigmatic sculptures. Rimzonâ€™s only exposure to art in his early years were commercial billboards in his neighbourhood. He created a book featuring portraits by Vincent van Gogh for an art competition in school and won. Rimzon enrolled in college in Thiruvananthapuram only when a relative, who had seen his drawings, encouraged him to pursue art. He studied sculpture at the College of Fine Arts there, followed by a post-graduation in the same subject from M. S. University, Vadodara. He also studied at the Royal College of Art in London. During this learning phase, Rimzonâ€™s figures seem to reflect the concerns emanating from Leftist background in Kerela. Rimzon has held shows in New Delhi, Amsterdam, New York and Brisbane. He lives and works in Kerela.
