I have been inspired by my gurus who are great and famous artists in my province Kerala. My first guru is my mom, Late. Jemini AK. My father, Mr. Narayanan.E always encouraged helped me to develop my artistic skills. I had my very basic training from artist Mr. Janardanan. I was motivated and inspired by Mr. Hari (unlce) and Mr. Shaji NS. A person who needs a special mention is my guru Mr. Saji Kumar. He did not believe in teaching art, he believed in bringing out the natural talent and expressing it boldly and confidently. I got my training in Indian mural painting under Mr.Gopi Chevayoor, one of the most famous artists in Kerala.
