Aegam is happy to feature a very talented young artist, Karmuhilan Chellakkannu.  In simple words, this is what he had to describe about him, “Passion for art is something I was born with. I never received any professional training. Although the ways of the world landed me in a different field, my love for art never faded away. I am a software engineer by profession and art is my passion.” It’s always inspiring to know someone who finds all possible avenues to showcase their talent, against all odds.  He loves to do Wall Murals and is fascinated by the possibility of using the entire wall as his canvas.  He also creates stunning paintings using Acrylic and Charcoal as a medium.

How would you best describe your love for art and what is your style?

Karmuhilan: Art makes me feel at peace and it makes me feel alive. Anything that captivates me, seem to touch my soul and I reflect it on my canvas with bright colours. I choose acrylic and charcoal as my medium on canvas to give shape to my inspirations. Though my style is predominantly contemporary and abstract, I am open to experimenting with other styles that appeal to me.

Who is your inspiration and when did this passion take a professional form?

Karmuhilan: My biggest inspiration is the contemporary artist Santhana Krishnan also known as ‘Door Santhanam’. With my exhibition in Dakshina Chitra in April 2010, I began the journey of realizing my dream, my desire to bring to the world the expressions of my creativity.
