Brief Description A pioneer of the neo-tantric movement in south India, K. V. Haridasan 's art arises from the blending of the rectilinear forms with the curvilinear, the positive and negative, bringing together opposites. The last find representation through the motifs of fire, petal and lotus, often amplified by the artist through his inclination towards the semiotics of the oval form. His most critically acclaimed series Brahmasutra, depicts these forms, in bright colours.
