Live Mint Article - " The art of myth-making"

 Climb up to the first floor of the Rabindra Bhavan gallery at Lalit Kala Akademi. As you enter the exhibition space, notice how artist A. Ramachandran reclines on a bed of flowers in a diptych. A vine connects to his navel like an umbilical cord. This self-portrait is part of the Ekalinji Fantasy exhibition, which shows the latest paintings and sculptures by the 79-year-old artist. Now, climb up further, to the second floor, to understand Ramachandran’s artistic process. To know the thoughts that ran through his mind as he created some of the most stunning works in his repertoire, visitors need only read the accompanying text.

Gulf News Article - "Nature is Achuthan Ramachandran’s muse"

 Achuthan Ramachandran, popularly known as A. Ramachandran, began painting as a child. Now, 80 years old, he still draws every day. “Drawing is an integral part of my daily ritual,” he says. “It’s just like a musician having to string the tanpura every day to do his riyaaz. I need to draw.”

His two-week, two-part exhibition opened at the Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi, on November 12. While he has done more than 5,000 drawings in the past 56 years, the exhibition showcases 1,500 selected works.

The first part, “A Retrospective: Drawings, Sketches and Studies 1958-2014”, is structured chronologically and thematically. The second part, “Ekalinji Fantasy”, holds 11 large oil paintings and bronze sculptures from 2009-2014. The exhibition traces the artist’s journey of creative expression based on observations and influences from life experiences.

A. Ramachandran is showing his latest works in a show titled Ekalingji Fantasy at Lalit Kala Akademi under the aegis of Vadehra Art Gallery.

Ramachandran is a rare painter who has complete mastery over drawing, line and colour in his work and combines this with a research oriented scholarship of Indian painterly traditions ranging from murals painted in the temples of Kerala to the ‘modernity’ of Raja Ravi Verma.

Live Mint Article - " A Ramachandran: The hair-raiser"

 A photograph in the ongoing retrospective of artist A. Ramachandran’s drawings in the Capital is strange for two reasons: First, because it’s the only photograph in an exhibition of around 1,200 sketches and studies made by the New Delhi-based artist over 56 years (this selection is about a fourth of the drawings he has carefully preserved through the years). And second, because from a distance it looks like an undifferentiated green glob. Look closer and the mass starts to break up into many lotus leaves. A shock of white hair in its midst draws the eye. This, then, is a photograph of the artist himself entering a lotus pond that has been his inspiration for 20 years.
