Biographical Information

Dr. Sivananda (Siva) was very fortunate to be born in an artistic family. His father, Sri Nyayapathi Sri Venkateswara Row, was a painter, writer, dramatist and a singer. In his childhood Siva used to watch for hours together while his father painted. That was the inspiration that led him also to art. For many years since childhood, Siva had learnt from his father. During this time, he had done mostly pencil drawings and water color paintings. He has been winning awards since he was 12 years old.

During his undergraduate studies at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, he had got the opportunity to work with oils, which was mostly self-taught from various books. Siva won awards for his artwork and represented IIT in inter IIT competitions. He had also painted huge backdrops for the stage productions during his college days. He had received special award for his outstanding contribution to art during his stay at IIT.

Siva and his family moved to Atlanta in 1996. Though already an award winning artist, being desirous of learning the techniques of the old masters, he had learnt for over four years from Chris DiDomizio's atelier. He had also learnt portraiture from International Masters like Daniel Greene, Burton Silverman, David Leffel, Michael Shane Neal, Jim Schell and Nancy Honea.

Siva is a juried member of the Portrait Society of Atlanta (PSA), a signature member of the Atlanta Fine Arts League, and an associate member of the Oil Painters of America. He had also served the PSA as a member of the board of directors for two years. He is juried to be included in the International Contemporary Masters Vol. V for 2011. He has exhibited in many one man and group shows in the USA.

Siva has been teaching art for the past many years.

Scientific research demonstrates that the fundamental principles are very simple and universal. Siva believes the same holds good for art, be it a portrait, still life or landscape. Art is simple; the trick is to know how to break down the complexity into these simple basic elements. Siva tries to convey the same to his students as well.
