Artist Raghava KK

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.

About Rob Jennings

When he found himself embroiled in a conversation with someone talking about their ‘customer-centric core competencies’ he realised it was time to create a Web Design Agency that was less about self promoting buzz-words and more about people and giving them the tools to understand the web.

The idea behind We Push Buttons was to create an environment where business owners can learn about building their organisation, whether it be with an outstanding website, SEO or any other marketing ideas. Coming from the art industry and online retail background he knows first hand the needs of growing a business in a tough environment.
