Pradeep Puthoor

 

The oeuvre of Pradeep Puthoor opens an unexplored world; a place of curious self-expression, frozen memory, of evolution and new ways of seeing that hovers between reality and imagination. He dextrously weaves these into a tapestry of forms that overlap to create a new language, whichthe artist encourages the viewer to decode and reimagine in his own way.
