This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Reddy is unambiguously devoted to his craft. Born in Suryapet, India, he lives and works in the same southeastern state where he was born, in a quiet port city called Visakhapatnam, where he has said he intends to remain He first began showing in the United States in the late 1990s, notably at a 1998 South Asian survey exhibition at the Queens Museum of Art, in New York. But his New York exhibition with Deitch Projects put him on the map in 2001, making him one of the first among a new wave of contemporary Indian artists to draw critical attention in the United States around the turn of the Millennium. More recently, his works have been shown at the Arken Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen (2012) and the Smart Museum of Art, Chicago (2011).

Biography from Christie's New York, Rockefeller Center:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Suryapet, in the Andhra Pradesh region of India, artist Ravinder Reddy references ancient Indian sculptural traditions in his massive polyester-resin heads. Contemporizing images of traditional Indian goddesses, Reddy plays on the American concept of "super-sizing", inflating these distinctly South Asian busts to gargantuan proportions.  In spite of their imposing size and saturated colors, the artist cunningly imbues his sculptures with a sense of serenity and the brash faces remain docile and oddly domestic.  In his transformation or re-appropriation of temple sculpture, Reddy is perhaps commenting on how India's religion and cultural history are affected by the racing bandwidth and relentless bombardment of internet and other mass media.
