Patricia Hilton - @Amardip Ghosh Thanks--I reloaded one image in higher resolution, after I had uploaded some others. Now I cannot figure out how to delete the first two low res images(?) On a second note, the copyright info appears in a bad spot on a couple of my images. I'm sure this is a boilerplate thing, but I recommend lowering this mark as it would be common to have important content in this particular spot. Thanks!
Amardip Ghosh - @Patricia Hilton Thank you too! Smallest side of image should be > 400 px. In terms of file size in bytes, an image file size should not be more than 50MB. However since higher resolution digital files allow larger print sizes, artists and photographers are advised to upload the highest resolution images they have. For good digital prints, smallest side of image should be > 1500 px.
Lisa Morshead - @Amardip Ghosh Thanks so much! This is such a great service for both professional and student artists. I'd also love to be more involved with AAC in any manner in which I can be helpful!
J.M.S. Mani has a diploma in Drawing and Painting from the Ken School of Art, Bangalore. He won the Karnataka Lalit Kala Akademi Award from 1981 to 1983. He has held several shows across India and internationally. He has participated in over a hundred group shows, such as the SAARC Exhibition at the Chitra Kala Parishath, Bangalore and the Bharat Bhavan International Biennale of Prints in 1989. He currently lives and works in Bangalore. The simple, rustic folk of the Deccan Plateau in South India, with strong Dravidian features, are the subjects of J.M.S. Mani's paintings. His art is an amalgamation of Indian culture with Western formalism. His figures are modeled in three-dimensional form, with bold brushwork, similar in style to those of the impressionists.
Mani is known and easily recognised for his sense of colour and strong,
fluid strokes. He paints figurative works portraying the local Badami people
in vibrant colours, landscapes in water colours, and charcoal drawings
as well as abstract works in oils and acrylics on canvas.
