 HARSHA VARDHAN DURUGADDA 

Born in 1989 Harsha was raised in a family of traditional stone sculptors where art became second nature to him who held his first paintings solo show at an age of 12years in Vizag. Everything was a canvas including his home facade, a ceiling fan a wooden door which become memories of his past. He learnt sculpting from his father a renowned artist who taught him how to work in sculpture. Completing masters in Visual Communication from Delhi introduced a gamut of possibilities through which he started exploring .

 

He received fellowship from British Council for a project “Loo Culture” which involved pushing barriers of taboo on open defecation, for which he created artworks using found & new Loo(WC). He held an installation at Max Mueller & British council supported by Wash United . Was part of “Urban Typhoon” workshop held by KHOJ where the objective is to produce creative alternatives for the future of Khirki Village.

 

Lack of open platforms that encourage new art mediums provoked him to form “Prayoga |Space for Experimental Media “ in collaboration with fellow artists. Recently was invited to talk at Pecha Kucha & NIFT college to share his thoughts on art. He is founder of “Artmorf” an inter-disciplinary art & design practice having studios in Delhi and Hyderabad. Is now working for his upcoming multidisciplinary solo show in Feb, 2013 .


Worked for clients such as German book Office, Devi Art Foundation , British Council & Quicksand.
