Murali Cheeroth – Curator
Born in Thrissur, Kerala, Murali Cheeroth earned his MFA from Santinikethan, West Bengal. According to the artist, his working process is “a kind of extraction system that draws on concerns about frenzied urbanization, globalization and the visual/virtual stimulation therein, and transforms them into another reality to simplify their characteristics and relationships in order to build a new visual experience that is clear and vivid.”
Cheeroth has held several solo shows and participated in over 100 group shows across India. He has also been part of international shows, such as Emerging India, presented by Art Alive Gallery at the Royal College of Art, London, in 2007.
