Born in 1965, Laxman was brought up in Kadirenigudem. Laxman completed his Bachelors and Master’s degrees in Fine Arts from the College of Fine Arts, JNAFAU, Hyderabad.
His most recognizable works are his black and white compositions, against brightly painted backgrounds such as red, green and yellow. On these bright backgrounds, we see absolutely stunning sketches of people; men, women and children, of the village chit-chatting and living their daily lives. Though he doesn’t use much colour, he plays with texture in his paintings. Laxman draws various designs on the women’s sarees, such as flowers and polka dots, along with other patterns, and changes the patterns of stripes and checks among the men’s clothing.
