Bhaskar Rao

Commission Request
Bhaskar Rao
Hyderabad, India

Bhaskar Rao majorly indulges in landscape and nature in his paintings. The Tree that can be seen in each of his work has remained constant as part of his oeuvre over the years in his career as a painter. Bhaskar has painted and drawn trees in myriad mediums and yet every time he has returned to it with a new vision.

“My landscapes reflect the memories and experiences I’ve collected from the places I have lived, touched, smelled, heard and walked through. My landscapes are painted from a place of love and gratitude for my experiences of the world.” “My landscapes are my playgrounds: my laughter, smiles and tears of reverence for beauty are present within them. They give my truth a voice and reflect my most intimate history.”
