Biography K. C. S. Paniker
"Canals used to make me highly emotional. And my eyes used to, at such times, fill with tears." - K C S PANIKER
Born in Coimbatore in 1911, K C S Paniker founded the Cholamandal Artists' Village in Chennai, and was responsible for placing South India on the map of Indian modernism. Paniker, whose career as an artist began late, when he was thirty, studied at the Madras School of Arts and Crafts under renowned sculptor D P Roy Choudhury. Travels in India and later Europe led him to a deep understanding of Indian and Western art, which informed his own distinct vision, which later in his career turned towards the metaphysical.
