K.M Adimoolam - Untitled - 19 x 19 inches (unframed size) Oil on canvas. Inclusive of shipment in roll form. Style : K.M Adimoolam is an acclaimed multi-faceted Indian abstract and figurative artist who magnificently creates a mystical aura through his beautiful artworks. With comprehensive understanding of the emblematic potential of color and compositions, he left thousands art lovers spell-bounded. Through his paintings, he exceptionally penetrates the veracity that lies beyond our panorama, which has given piquancy and edge to his oeuvre. Color came into his life, causing him to move from the figurative to the abstract. Adimoolam now works with equal ease at drawing and painting, combining the two to produce a large body of work. It is this and not any specific imagery that Adimoolam uses to interpret nature, making his paintings abstract renditions of the natural world purely through color. Adimoolam’s canvases partake of his inner energy and vision, emerging as an extension of his mind that seems to put down color without referring to the artist himself. “At least for half the stage of a painting, I act as a tool and only after that I overcome this challenge,” explains Adimoolam. In his own words: “ I interpret it through colors, without focusing on any aspect. No preconceived imagery has impeded my spontaneous interplay of colors. They create the life, verve, void and texture, and inherent sense of energy. My innate optimism permeates through the colors as the joie de vivre." About the Artist and his work : Born : K. M.
