  3. About A. Balasubramaniam (b. 1971)
    Balasubramaniam discovered about the Government College of Arts, Chennai, on
    a train journey, and this led him to complete his Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts
    from there in 1995. Later, he studied printmaking at EPW Edinburgh, UK, and at
    Universitat fur Angewandte Kunste in Wien, Austria.
    Journeys would continue to travel in his work. His 7 years of impeccable
    international exposure and travel has engendered a daring body of work that
    is seamless across genres, materials and media – sculpture, printmaking, mixed
    media; plaster, silkscreen prints and paper relief. Balasubramaniam travels beyond
    the strict formalism of the modernists with these in-the-face, lyric celebrations of
    aesthetic imbalance. Each work is a journey, which retraces the artist’s steps. And
    becomes the viewer’s own journey.
    He has exhibited in France, Spain, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, Finland, Norway and USA.
    Amongst his solo shows are ‘(In)Between’ and ‘(In)Visible’ at Talwar Gallery, New
    Delhi; ‘(Desi)re’ at Talwar Gallery, New York; and ‘Transition and Transformation’
    at the Fine Arts Museum, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His most recent
    group endeavors include ‘Freedom 2008 – Sixty Years after Indian Independence’
    at the Centre for International Modern Art, Kolkata, 2008; ‘The Inverted Tree’ at
    Gallery Threshold, New Delhi, 2005; ‘Indian Summer’ at the Ecole des Beaux Arts,
    Paris, 2005; and ‘Solitude’ at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, in 2003. The
    artist lives and works in Bangalore.
