Testimonials V.JEEVANANTHAN, President, Chitrakala Academy,Coimbatore, April 21, 2017 As an art enthusiast and a painter, I come across many artists, both young and old, daily.. When most are attracted to abstract paintings and easier craftworks like Tanjore, pot and glass paintings , I find realistic artists a rare species. Ramya Sadhasivam is one of those rare species who is indulged in doing oil paintings in a realistic style. She selects difficult subjects mostly from real life. Her paintings are filled with living human beings from common life with a pure south Indian flavor. Dark skinned poor people walk in her canvasses. To bring out their skin tone is itself a hard thing for people who practice oil paintings and she easily wins in the process.She gives life to her subjects with proper lights and shades. Her animals vibrate with life. The backgrounds, whether interior or exterior are aptly painted to bring out the beauty of the main subjects. Her rarity is again proved with her nude paintings. I haven’t come across any lady artists painting nudes recently. When many shy away, Ramya tries to paint nudes of women with great artistic skills. Her experiments on lights and shades and skin tones can be compared with any senior artists.I wish this genuine artist a great future in the field of Art ! Charu Nivedita, Postmodern, Transgressive Tamil writerI have known Ramya for quite sometime now. I got to know her through Facebook and we met at the Mylapore park once where it was a group show and she happened to display her works. Her genre is realistic works, though not a style that would impress me her intention to register the happenings of the culture and society impressed me. Her works touch your heart in a few ways. When you take a deep look at them, you can feel the life of a living being in it. I wish her all the best in her life. Devendhira Poopathy Bhaskarasethupathy, Joint Commissioner of Commercial Taxes at Government of TNI came to know her about 4 years ago on Facebook. She has been doing some incredible works as far as I have observed. Her focus on how to embrace ethnicity is what impresses me a lot. She has shown tremendous improvement since then. I wish her all the very best in her endeavors. Olivannan Gopalakrishnan, Chief Executive Officer at Emerald PublishersRamyaSadasivam and myself have been friends for about 9 years now. She was introduced to me fresh from college. She is an intelligent girl with good flow of language and a lot of energy. I wanted to make use of her intelligence and suggested her to write a book. She took my advice and did a book for us targeting college goers. The book did will. However she took a turn later on in her life and started pursuing art seriously. She is quite a determined person believing in giving her best in whatever she takes in hand. I wish her all the best! Appadourai Arvind, Director at Tiasci Music – Paalam PublicationsArtist Ramya Sadasivam’s figurative genre painting depict particularly the indian rural life. Expresionist, the artist tries to bring out the emotions of the characters and not to reproduce the reality as such, and naïve as far as volume, perspective and colours are concerned. In fact the colours are determined by the fantasy and taste of the painter with a dravidian sociological background. Ramya Sadasivam has taken a strong position, and wages an aesthetic war to leberalize and modernize the perception of humain bodies and to reconnect it to the roots of ancient indian imagery (sculptures).
