His finely honed skills, astute observation and refined aesthetic
sensibilities help him capture the essence of a scene in a few
strokes. He makes the common look uncommon. He transforms
the ordinary into the extraordinary.
In his hands nature comes alive in all its richness, textures, hues
and forms. With a wash here and a dab there, the overwhelming
beauty of the monsoon skies and rain drenched dwellings, are
frozen for all time for the eyes of the connoisseur. The dramatic,
fluffy, cloud-laden and infinite azure skies, the slanting trees
bending in the wind, the bottomless emerald and aquamarine
sea, all find expression in breathtaking compositions.
In a world filled with noise, Sadhu Aliyur finds his own unique
voice that tells a compelling story.
It's not surprising that the Sadhu has been honoured for his
talent with awards in Kerala and outside. He has already had
over 23 exhibitions and each time he brings a fresh look at his
chosen subject and theme.
In fact the Kerala Lalithakala Academy chose Sadhu for this
year's Vijaya Raghavan Gold Medal Endowment.
He has also been recognized abroad. The Turkey International
Water Colour Society recently honoured Sadhu Aliyur for his
His Paintings find a place of honour amongst the work of welt
known water colour artists from over 50 nations worldwide, and
also find Pride of place in the art collections of many in India and
Now you too can get a taste of some of Sadhu Aliyur's best
works sourced from several inter-state exhibitions and camps.
