About the Artist

Born in 1954, in a artisan vishvakarma family from Bijapur in Karnataka he graduated with Master of Visual Art from Hampi University and heralded a new vision for his art. He took part in many major regional, National Art Camps & workshops all over India. He has secured many Awards and Best Art Teacher is one of them.
Devendra M Badiger is the Artist who forces us to focus on subtile elements, which appear in visible at first glance. But this is where we find rooted the deepest motivations and driving force, which gives every work of art its unique characteristics. For an artist, art is just not a mean of self expression but a way of engaging the viewer in an active dialogue. This dialogue is a cultural terms and is particularly relevant today, when cultural diversities can be achieved only by preservation of cultural identities. In exhibiting his art, he represents his rich culture and great traditional identities. But still in his approach, sensibility and technique, he is unquestionably a contemporary artist, continuously taking the unexplored paths. In his creative expressions he seeks deep meaning & formal innovations. He sharpens our aesthetic sense & strengthens our value systems, individual & social. It links the busy urban cities like Delhi with ancient Karnataka. It is in these connections, that we discover the nuance, invisible at the glance. He provokes us to look at his art again & again, to discover something new each time. He urges us to participate in a multi cultural discourse and to which he contributes a new vision of India in the making.
