Velukutty was born in the Indian state of Kerala which has been described as the ‘ Gods Own Country’ by the visitors. He moved to the U S A in 1975 and has been living in Citrus County for the past 34 years.
He is a self taught artist. He used to draw from a very young age. Velukutty took up oil painting seriously after his retirement as a physician. He has been trying to paint almost every day for the past 4 years. Painting is very relaxing, fulfilling and liberating affair for him.
He loves to paint the rolling waves with the splatter when it meets the rock in the evening light. Many mornings he is intrigued with the fleeting colors of the morning light over the clouds. He wants to paint it, but not always successful. He loves the fall colors, the mountain streams, the small waterfalls, and wants to paint the ripples of the waves which breaks up the reflections of the nature above.
He wants to bring a sense of reality in a convincing way in his creations. When he takes up the brush he is in a different world. “Not all of my work turns out to be acceptable.”
“I am still a student. There is lot of ground I have to cover in the field of art. My style is still evolving. I want to create visual poetry which appeals to the emotions rather than the intellect.”
