We had the good fortune while visiting friends in Kannur to meet the artist M. C. Sreejith and his daughter. Sreejith runs the Brushman’s School of Art in the city and we were able to see part of an exhibition of paintings by Sreejith and fellow Kerala artists.
Later, the same day, we visited his home to meet his daughter and were given a tour of his home and studios. Sreejith gained his MFA at Delhi and he later specialised in sculpture at the Fine Arts College in Thiruvananthapurum. This photo was captured while we chatted in Sreejith’s home.
Sreejith and some of his students caused a stir at the Biennial in Fort Kochi by producing a 3D street painting close to the shore and ferry terminal.
