About Ramesh MARIO NITHIYENDRAN

The works of Sri Lankan–born, Sydney–based artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran draw upon the colorful, ethnic communities of Sydney’s western suburbs. This enriching multicultural setting has influenced his creativity from an early age. 

Known for his larger-than-life ceramic sculptures and paintings of mythical figures and ritualistic icons, Ramesh’s work is bold, bright, chaotic and deeply layered. He has travelled extensively across Asia, to show work in Bangladesh, Taipei, India, Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapore. He has produced installations for Dark MOFO in Tasmania, the Art Gallery of NSW, and Home of the Arts on the Gold Coast. And he has appeared as a finalist in the celebrated Archibald Prize, as both an artist and a subject. We chat to Ramesh from his studio in North Sydney, about his diverse global influences, why he is drawn to high-density cities, and where to find the best South Asian food in Sydney.
