Pavan is an award-winning photographer artist with roots in the university town of Mysore, Karnataka - India.
Aptly enough, Pavan’s previous photo series titled ‘Kusti’ captures the stoic struggle of Mysore’s traditional wrestlers, to keep their martial art alive in the face of modern India’s urban onslaught.
The series found resonance with its many protagonists, and was exhibited with much appreciation at the prestigious Kala Ghoda arts festival, Mumbai in February 2015. Pavan’s first solo exhibition was of his works series “Junkyard” at Sumukha Art Gallery, Bangalore in 2009. Photographs from his Traces series were exhibited at Harmony Art Show in 2008 in Mumbai.
A graduate of fine arts, Pavan has won an all-India level still-life photography award from Better Photography magazine.
He has conducted workshops, done jury duty on photography competitions and is constantly looking to engage photography enthusiasts on his Facebook, Instagram and Twitter Pages.
