An artist from Chennai, living and working in Hosur, India. Elbin Paul studied painting at The School of Arts, Chennai and got his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1995, after which, by some quirk of fate, he landed up in the software industry. After working as a designer in a couple of IT companies for close to ten years, he decided to live his dream and took up painting again. Luckily for him, work took him across the seas around the same time, and he found some fresh inspirations and new subjects of study. Having travelled for four years in the UK, the US, and sometimes Bangalore, his brushes have recorded a wide range of impressions on paper. He could be called an instinctive painter, since he hardly ever paints pre-meditated subjects. More often than not, his subjects seem to choose him. They can be anything — from people to places, from nature to culture, from traditions to vignettes of mundane existence. Like many artists, he cannot exactly pinpoint when the commonplace transforms into a subject worthy of painting. But he certainly feels that the color palette and brushstrokes in his works communicate his state of mind at the time of painting.

He has selected 35 of his works from the last four years to present to you. We do hope you will enjoy them. The artiste would be glad if you let him know what you liked most about them, and also if there is something you did not like as much.
