leave a comment »

Visual artist Madan Meena has exhibited his work extensively in various galleries across the world. Portraying the rich and vibrant colors of Rajasthan his work uses geometry with elements of nature like moon, rain and flowers. His abstract style transforms the circle into subtle poetic images that are extremely endearing.
