Laxma Goud is a raconteur of Telangana life and landscape
“Basically a printmaker whose drawings or lines are more expressive than his colour, Laxma Goud has stirred the emotions of the art cognoscenti. He has been relentlessly and continues to look at the myriad themes of Telangana in different mediums – drawings, paintings, graphics, terracotta sculptures, bronze sculptures. His Telangana idiom draws upon the physicality of the landscape and people. Goud’s images are detailed intricately and simple to understand. He is a raconteur of sorts. In short, each work almost tells a story – the story of their lives, the story of their habitat as well as that of plants and animals. Earthy, rustic, but rooted in the rural, the imagery has an enchanting feel and touch about it”
