We aren’t exactly the artsy fartsy type but when we met Steve (pictured below) and he started showing us art from Mohan D. Sunaresan, it was easy to understand why he is in demand. The art work is very meticulous, you can really see the attention to detail.
Mohan D. Sundaresan
Here is Mohan’s bio from his website
“Mohan was born in Bangalore, India in 1945. “In India we did everything with our hands. I learned how to paint at a young age since we made our own toys.” He has lived in London,UK, Vienna, Austria, and since 1989, La Jolla, California.
Mohan draws the inspiration for his art from several sources, including his dachshund “Dizzie,” who he walks daily around town. “Dizzie is my philosopher,” said Mohan. “He believes he is part of everything and everything is a part of him. Dizzie inspires me to realize my oneness. My father’s words are also important to me. He taught me that at some point you have to teach yourself. You have to grow and evolve on your own.”
Music also inspires Mohan. He listens to many different artists whiles he paints: Jimi Hendrix, Beethoven, Miles Davis, and Willie Nelson, to name a few. He is influenced by painters William Turner and Zao Wo-Ki.”

Our pictures of the art do not do them justice. They are very nice,one of a kind pieces. You can really see the influence of the ocean and the sky in his work. You can learn more on Mohan’s Website.
