SITA Series - Sita and the Cow

THE EAST

Sid Katragadda is a San-Diego/Bangalore based Indian-American artist. His paintings have been exhibited and collected worldwide. As an artist, he believes that an artist's primary objective should be to capture a culture – and that a culture can be best understood through its women. He aims to develop his own styles of painting that progress art in new directions. His experiments are seen in all his paintings.


My art has three sides: Meaning, Social impact and Innovation . My paintings are not strictly meant to decorate walls, but to decorate minds, each with a story and a message. I believe that an artist's primary goal is to be a vehicle for social change. A hundred years from now, I want my art to be a time capsule of society as it exists today. I also place a high value on innovation; as Picasso said, every painting series has to move art in a new direction... never repeat yourself or others." My goal is to develop my own styles that progress art in new directions. I am the founder of the "Holeism", "Soulism" and "Feminism" art styles, which I hope to popularize. Sid's paintings have been exhibited and collected worldwide. He has sold over 70 paintings in a career spanning from 2008 to present, with collectors in India, Dubai, Australia, Singapore, and America.
