KG Subramanyan's Story Paintings
Do paintings tell stories? When K. G. Subramanyan was a child, he was fascinated by temple murals that looked like a beautiful pattern of colours from a distance, but up close became a panel of many stories. He grew up to become a storyteller-artist. His stories are complex and not always linear — sometimes they cover whole buildings and walls! Through the artist's story, Sara Vetteth shows children how they too can tell stories through colours, shapes and textures.
