Mohammed Osman

Mohammed Osman is a young promising artist, was born in a small town near Hyderabad. He had spent more than twenty years in his small town before moving to Hyderabad and obtaining a degree in painting from the College of Fine Arts at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad.

Rural India is a rich source inspiration to Osman who has taken to painting the Gangireddu or decorated ox (also known as basava in Kannada).

Lavishly-decorated oxen and their feats are a colourful part of village festivities during Sankranti or Pongal, he describes. It is a common belief that the oxen brought to houses by the Gangireddulavaru community are symbols of good luck to households.

The bulls, festooned with colourful clothes and anklets, also move rhythmically to Nadaswaram and drum beats. The clothes are donated by wealthy families, and are used to decorate the bulls. “The forms were so artistic that they leaped out at me,” Mohammed recalls; he then decided to capture their beauty in art forms.
