When next you land at the new Mumbai airport, a massive 10′ by 80′ mural depicting flight will greet you, the work of S. Suresh Kumar, popularly known as Suresh Muthukulam. Traditionally trained and extraordinarily gifted, Suresh is arguably Kerala’s leading muralist. Suresh was born in 1971 and mastered the Kerala mural tradition under an innovative gurukula system started by the Guruvayur Devaswom. In 1995 he became a visiting lecturer at the Ravi Varma Institute of Fine Arts. He painted nine masterpieces depicting Gurudeva’s visions, each four feet square.
