Penmanship: Krishnan's Unique Mastery of the Ballpoint Pen
1 / 2
Developing a singular facility with the ballpoint pen for over thirty years, Krishnan creates predominantly abstract art that is at once organic and geometric, using lines that are bold yet fluid, with colours that are intense yet soft. His unique medium of ink, infused frequently with pigments of other media, pulsates with a gentle vibrancy of its own. Human and animal forms dissolve into curvaceous flourishes, which in turn flow into suggestive landscapes and angular shapes. In his art, you will find the culture of India where he studied, the spirit of his homeland in Malaysia and the progressiveness of Singapore where he now works.
