M. Narayan, born in 1967 comes from a small village in Karnataka called Mittiganahalli.

I completed B.F.A. from the Ken School of Art, Bangalore. With a strong sense for color and a steady hand in composition my paintings inspired by the regal sport polo have been a tremendous success.

Working since 1991, I have participated in over 30 solo exhibitions and many more group shows.An eminent entity in the art circuit.My works have been highly appreciated, purchased as well as commissioned by distinguished industrialists and enthusiasts. To name a few, Mr.Jaydev Mody , Dr.Vijay Mallya, Dr.Cyrus Poonawala, Avinash Bhosale Amit Bhosale, Rajesh Dhingra are avid collectors of my works. My ethnic rural depictions have a certain boldness of color while preserving the innocence of the subject. Just a single splash by me livens up the dullest of spaces & touches one’s soul.

This is one of the top most work among the list of my favorite paintings & closed to my heart. It is spread across 60 feet wide & gives you the immense feel of colors describing the various form of Goa.

My hand moves behind my thoughts & lines appear on vast expanse of empty canvas. It takes shape of my dreams, have u ever seen rainbow of colors behind closed eye lids. I experience it every time I touch my color palette, just like how one feels, when standing in front of deviety in temple, close eyes and image of Devine in your innermost vision. I pickup colors one by one mix them, blend them vigorously and behold the picture is complete.
