1964 M. Suriyamoorthy Charcoal Art Abstract (#10)
1964 M. Suriyamoorthy Charcoal Art Abstract (#10). This is an M. Suriyamoorthy’s charcoal art abstract. Again what looks like an abstract of a woman. Suriyamoorthy’s artworks are eye-catching and lean more towards Picasso’s style. He could be termed as India’s Picasso.
Signed by him on the poster “M. Suriyamoorthy 2/11/64”, the poster measures 29×20 inches. I was fortunate to collect many of his charcoal drawings. See details of them in the Raja Ravi Varma Oleographs & Other Art Category. He was born in Tamil Nadu, Southern India in 1944.
Being a professional artist, he derived his own distinct style. With women being centralized in most of his art. His paintings and art have won many awards in India and abroad. Art galleries and museums in Europe and America exhibited his paintings.

Did you know- he had mentioned about his formula for each colour took him many years to perfect. His formula pigments, he stated, will retain the quality of colour and brightness for more than a century.
