The Creator Of Great Works

Critically acclaimed artist, Brahma Rangoju, is one of the most original and creative contemporary artist’s of our time. As the winner of the Best Artist Millennium Award by the Cultural Association of Osmania University, Brahma continues to impress critics and art lovers alike with his unique ability to represent reality through an abstract framework.

Born in India, Brahma started painting at a very early age. He nurtured his talent during his youth by painting landscapes and still-life objects. Following high school, he attended Jawaharial Nehru Technology University – College of Fine Arts where as a student he received praise in the art column “A Stroke Here and A Stroke There” of India’s influential newspaper, The Deccan Chronicle as an artist “filled with passion and talent”. More than a decade later his works have continued to captivate audiences with the The Roanoke Times of Virginia hailing “The Vibe” as a “gorgeous and tremendous work”.

Since arriving in the United States, Brahma has solidified himself as a prominent artist through various commissions and exhibitions. In April 2004 his painting “Festival Jumble” was featured in the New York Art Festival. In November 2005 his artwork was a major contribution to the “Gulf Coast Relief Benefit Show” organized by the New York Cooking Life and Starplus TV Host, Vikas Khanna, at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York. The event benefited Save the Children and Habitat for Humanity. His artwork also served as a major contribution at an event held in June 2006 to raise funds and raise awareness to the mission of the Society for Accessible Travel and Hospitality. NBC News Studio’s Anne Curry, served as the Guest of Honor for this event.

His solo exhibition in May 2006 held at the Warwick Hotel, was in association with Amarjyoti Charitable Trust. The exhibition, Colors of Ability, was dedicated to the Sixtieth Anniversary of the United Nations and the organization’s efforts in promoting the welfare and happiness of children everywhere.

His following solo exhibition in July 2006, was a part of the Bollywood Groups’ Movie/Music/ Fashion Awards extravaganza held at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. Brahma was the first artist to hold an art exhibition at the Roseland Ballroom. His works also appeared in Bollywood’s Music Awards held in Atlantic City’s Trump Taj Mahal Casino, projected behind musicians as they performed on-stage.

Aside from his various awards and exhibitions Brahma’s paintings have been given as tokens of appreciation to various celebrities for their participation in events. Music legend Michael Bolton, actress Nicollette Sheridan and Miss World Diana Hayden have all been recipients of his artwork.

The artist is always seeking to respond to social issues through his artwork. Soon after the attacks of September 11th, he expressed his emotions in relation to the attack and his concerns for global terrorism in the form of a painting entitled “9/11”. The disaster in South East Asia was the motivation for his abstract work titled “Tsunami” which was contributed to the Asian American Journalist Association in March 2006. The painting was auctioned off at Honolulu, Hawaii by Barbara Chen of ABC News.
His works continue to be defined by his individualistic style and abstract concepts. Working with spontaneous, dynamic brush strokes to produce vibrant color blocks on large-scale canvasses, Brahma continues to produce bold yet luminous images that sometimes hide, sometimes heighten, but always re-define reality.

The artist is currently working on a series of paintings in New York where he currently resides.
