P. Gnana is a distinguished, leading painter and sculptor in Singapore. He received a scholarship to LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore and has since produced and exhibited work widely across Asia.
P. Gnana’s art is synonymous with the metaphorical representation of the cow, which has emerged as a phenomenon in its own right. He has created cows in bronze, metal, painted and with paper prints on the sides, from car parts, both small in size or giant life sizes. The cows are characteristic and realistic no matter what materials have been used to create them.
Experimentation, serious and sometimes meditative, has been one of the key instruments that has shaped Gnana’s creative journey through the past 16 years, allowing him to rejuvenate in a world of constant change and fluctuating emotions.
Having exhibited in Singapore, Malaysia, India and Dubai, P. Gnana’s exemplary work can also be found in the collections of the President of the Republic of Singapore, the Singapore Art Museum and the National Heritage Board.
