Narayanappa Muniyappa born in 1967 comes from a small village in Karnataka called Mittiganahalli. He completed his B.F.A. from the Ken School of Art, Bangalore.
The Polo series is one of Narayan’s prominent body of works which depicts his passion for horses. He portrays galloping horses and polo players in charcoal drawing. Using expressionist strokes, swabs of opaque colours and fierce charcoal lines, Narayan captures the power and speed as though watching alive polo match. With a strong sense for colour and a steady hand in composition, his paintings inspired by the regal sport polo have been a tremendous success.
