About artist

For Udayan P.S , a drummer in the professional circuit in Kochi for ever three decades , art is for heart’s sake.And it’s not alone the drum sticks that he handles with dexterity.He is a drummer and an artist rolled into one.

Interestingly , unlike most other artists , he doesn’t use brush and colours for pouring out his creativity.Instead , he makes effective use of thread , needle and a motorised embroidery machine to carve out fine pieces of fine art in cloth.

The fact that he could breathe life into only twenty portraits , in a matter of fifteen years , ever since he took a plunge into this unique art form , speaks for the extensive period of time taken forĀ  completing each portrait.It takes at least three months for Udayan to complete a single portrait.He picked up the thread of inspiration years back after seeing a similar kind of work displayed at a museum in Guruvayoor.

Udayan P.s was born in Kalady , Kerala , in 1967 , lives and works in Kalady.
