P. Gnana is a leading painter and sculptor based in Singapore .His artworks are being collected in Southeast Asia, Europe and South Asia. It is a fact that exemplary paintings by P. Gnana are also in the collections of the President of the Republic of Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum of the National Heritage Board.
Fourteen of Gnana’s large-scaled abstract artworks (2 x 1.5 metres each) were ommissioned in 2005 by Singapore’s Ascendas Pte Ltd for the International Tech Park in Chennai. Gnana is a recipient of the LASALLE Scholarship of the LASALLE College of the Arts (Singapore), from where he received his formal training in the art of painting.
Gnana’s art is synonymous with the metaphorical representation of the cow, which indeed emerged as a phenomenon in its own right. Gnana’s eighth solo art exhibition, The Eternal Cow: Sculptures and Paintings by P. Gnana, was presented at the Singapore Philatelic Museum in 2009. Experimentation, serious and sometimes meditative, has been one of the key instruments that has shaped Gnana’s creative journey through the past sixteen years, allowing him to rejuvenate in a world of constant change and fluctuating emotions.
