D Ananthaiah
A graphic artist and a painter

"If Ananthaiah is transformed into a bird, a woman, a twig or a leaf then his soul is enriched."

D Ananthaiah, a graphic artist and a painter, explains his awe for nature in the above fashion. Resplendent with nature's stark beauty, his works always include in their frames a man who possesses an uncanny understanding of mother earth's elements and a bird that symbolises the artist's perceptions. He believes that the beauty of the natural wo"The Golden Rays", Etching, Size: 34x49cmrld is entirely responsible for his creativity.

Born in 1953 at Ramaiahguda, Vikarabad in Ranga Reddy district of Andhra Pradesh, Ananthaiah graduated in Science and a B.Ed. from the Osmania University. Thereafter, he went on to take a Diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Ideal Fine Art Institute of Gulbarga in the Karnataka State. Soon after returning to Hyderabad, he planned a career in art and also took to teaching. His keen interest in graphic arts, led him to hone his skills in the Graphic School of the Telugu University. Ananthaiah displayed his works for the first time in 1985 at a group show held at Kala Bhavan, Hyderabad. The years that followed brought him fame and recognition as his works travelled from Hyderabad to Calcutta, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai and Cochin.

His graphics, belonging to the genre of contemporary art, appear textural to the eye. With subdued use of colours he manages to recreate the harmony of light and darkness that is found abundant in nature. His works have received many awards and critical acclaim, from Hyderabad Art Society, Lalit Kala Akademi - Chennai, Potrti Sreeramulu Telugu University, KCP - Bangalore and Bombay Art School, Mumbai. Presently the the treasurer of the Hyderabad Art Society, he is also the headmaster in the Central Upper Primary School, Puppalguda, Ranga Reddy district. Thus a career that started with the worship of nature in its closing stages has been completely devoted to sharpening the skills nature's offsprings!
