ARUN K S

Arun KS, b. 1984 in Thrissur, Kerala.
Lives and works in Baroda, India.

After gaining a degree in Fine Arts, Arun KS went on to do his post-graduation in Visual Arts from the MS University, Baroda. He also spent a year on apprenticeship with Gulammohammed Sheikh in 2011.

His work has been exhibited at the Kerala Lalit Kala Akademi, Thrissur, Asvitha Art Gallery, Chennai, India Art Fair, New Delhi and Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke, Mumbai.

In this video, Arun notes that his works reflect on time and its relation to history. History is a narrative written by someone, but Arun is interested in psychological time, which cannot have such authors. This idea he develops in his paintings through the the process of layering, of adding and erasing layers, offering even invitation to accident. Arun believes that the space in Kochi will activate his work with its own history.
