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.
