S G Vasudev
Born in Mysore, he grew up in Bangalore where he completed his graduation in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Vasudev had this great urge to study art. His mother and father, a painter and agriculturist respectively, had this dream that their son would become a doctor or perhaps an engineer. “But I was always interested in art and had to convince my parents that I should get into painting,” he says.
With no art college in Bangalore, the nearest option was the Govt. College of Arts & Crafts, in Madras. A leading institution in the country at that time and headed by well known and leading artist himself, the late M.C.S. Panicker, it was the perfect setting for young Vasudev to learn the rudiments of art. National Award in 1967 at the age of 24, one of the youngest to have achieved that distinction.
In 1994 the State Government conferred on him the Karnataka Rajyotsava Award. He has great regard for his mentor, the late K.C.S Panicker, who along with K.K. Hebbar were the two artists greatly having influenced his life.
