A PERSON WHO IS INTERESTED IN VALUING ART
Malathi Venkataramanan was born in Chennai, India in 1970. She has a wide repertoire of mediums and subjects but focuses primarily on wood (Thanjavur style), canvas, ceramic and glass.
She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras in 1998. She had a natural inclination to all forms of art and music from a young age. Following the completion of her education she was able to devote more time and energy to the arts and consequently was able to refine her techniques in painting on various mediums. While primarily a self-taught artist she has received informal training through other experienced artists and teachers in the US and India. Her paintings have been displayed in many informal exhibitions. She has also had commercial success with her paintings within her social circles.
Malathi’s attempt to venture into the professional art scene begins with her maiden exhibition titled “Divinity and Nature”. In this exhibition she focuses on the themes of natural sceneries and divine representations of Hindu gods. This exhibition presents her work on canvas, glass and with the Thanjavur styles.
She is also an accomplished singer trained in Carnatic music and currently a student of the Hindustani style of music. She lives in Georgia, United States of America with her husband, two daughters and her dog.
