About Artist

The purpose of ART is to experience the ‘bliss’, which is the food for soul.” 

                                                                                                                                               — Me

Venu Madhav Vodnala – A self-taught, art aficionado by passion.

My constant quest is to bring out the ‘soul’ of the subject with pencil/charcoal, which retains what it is, as well as adding my own perspective and flavor to it. This form of art is called ‘Graphite Realism’.

Many wonderful artists inspired me & the most influential was Sir Armin Mersmann (http://www.arminmersmann.com). His works always rekindle the passion within me to work more passionately & experience the bliss which is the food for my soul.

All my works have been chosen by virtue of either by their beauty, intricacy, challenge, divinity, elegance or by their legendary attitude.

I feel my work gets chosen & appreciated because the subject’s beauty is brought forth in all senses.

All my works are original, without any printing, photo manipulation or duplication. Every piece of work delivered from me, is a unique piece made by my hand with no technicalities involved, is an epitome of pure traditional art.

Art for art’s sake – My work portfolio is unique in multiple ways, pure without any technicalities involved & carries a part of me 🙂

Unlike many artists whose expertise is limited to few domains, I’m fortunate to choose the wide gamut of subjects & instill life.

    It’s truly amazing to see the kind of skill that you have developed all by yourself. Hat’s off to all the dedication and hardwork that you put in it. It is really extra ordinary to devote time and be so good in something other than your profession. Sincere wishes to you.

    There is a lot of power in your drawings, I am impressed! They have something unique, even if the theme is a very well-known photo. Very interesting work process, parts of the drawing are almost finished while the rest of the paper is still completely white.
