Contemporary artist T.V. Santosh (Indian, b.1968) creates powerful works which explore historical injustices, acts of violence, and the manipulation of media propaganda. Appropriating references from news sources, such as television, newspapers, and magazines, Santosh surrounds viewers with the immediacy of his work, solarizing his palette to create stunning visual effects within his compositions. His painterly style and subverted technique combine to expose hidden symbolism within the margins of his work. Santosh has held solo exhibitions at such venues as The Guild Art Gallery in Mumbai, India, Singapore Art Museum, and the Saatchi Gallery, London, among others.
