Artist Raghava KK
Raghava KK discusses the five lives of an Artist:
Raghava KK’s paints and draws in a cartoonish style examining the body, society, and our world- and to top it off he’s a mighty fine speaker too.
He first started out drawing cartoons for an Indian Newspaper in Bangalore and from there his early works included large watercolours on canvas using both his hands and feet. These were exceptionally well received but when his mother became ill he entered a new artistic style that alienated many of his fans and collectors.You can view his website here.
That’s one of the reasons I think I loved this talk so much. He candidly discusses the highs and lows, the triumphs and difficulties he has overcome to get to where he is today.
He has exhibited everywhere from the Bronx to Nimes-France, London, and of course Bangalore.
This talk is from the TED conference in California. Other notable speakers at the conference were Bill Gates, James Cameron, Sheryl Crow, and mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot.
