Born in 1989 in Andhra Pradesh, Chandra Morkonda obtained MFA from Visva Bharati University in Santiniketan and BFA in JNTU Hyderabad. He has participated in several group shows in Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Hyderabad. He also had a solo show in Forum Art Gallery, Chennai. He has received the state award from PSTU Hyderabad. Over the years his works had been displayed in a number of art camps, exhibitions and shows all over India and overseas.
His works show the influence of the Tribal folk paintings depicting and highlighting nature using symbolism and metaphors. “I am fascinated by trees and the deities associated with them and the intertwining symbolism between the two.” Through the vividness and freshness of the colours is conveyed the experience and memory of an imaginary landscape which celebrates nature on one hand and the atrocities towards it on the other.
