Strong, fluid strokes

City art connoisseurs are often treated to a delightful and sumptuous feast of paintings from other parts of the country and abroad, thanks to the private galleries who keep in mind the tastes of this city in mind while hosting shows. JMS Mani is a Bangalore-based artist whose paintings are currently being exhibited drawing large crowds. Born in Bangalore in 1949, Mani studied art at the Ken School of Art. He has participated in numerous group shows, art camps and workshops around the country. Mani is known and easily recognised for his sense of colour and strong, fluid strokes. He is fascinated by the colourful lives of the Badami people and delineates them in vibrant strokes. An ardent nature lover and observer, Mani delineates the changing facades of nature in his landscapes in water colours as well as charcoal drawing and abstract works in oils of acrylics on canvas. His dexterity with colour and form is immediately recognisable. Maniís works are in many private and public collections both in the country and abroad
