A year back while holidaying in India, I had come across the brilliant art works by this artist....K.R.Santhana Krishnan from Chennai. His work known as 'Door Paintings' are inspired by the entrance to houses in the agraharam(place where the bhramins live) on his way to his college, in his home town of Kumbakonam. It's amazing to note that every little details has been worked out so well, be it... the advertisements or the oil stains upon the lamp spaces on the walls, the house number, the turmeric or kumkum marks on the door, the texture of the walls etc.! And its all about what you see when you peep into a house. My special liking is towards his mixed media work which could be a replica of real doors! Done on wood with accessories like lock, knob/handle etc. they look real! And he does these in various sizes from a 12 x 18 to almost life size! I am inspired! You have to check his works at Door paintings.
