A quote from a preview of the exhibition by the critic Ivan A. Khayiat: “Muru’s art is lifelike and direct; it is full of vitality – a refreshing spectacle to behold!”
A. Murugesan, also known as Muru, the husband of India’s top diplomat in Suriname, was born more than five decades ago in Tamil Nadu, India. Initially Muru studied art in The Hague, the Netherlands. He presented his first work as part of an exhibition in the Ukraine in 2005.
‘The freshness and immediacy of watercolours, their translucency and vibrancy always attracted me, Though difficult to master, watercolour kindles my passion and throws a challenge every time I approach the paper with paint. I hope you enjoy the paintings as much I enjoyed painting them!”
