CATALOGUE NOTES Edition 7/100. Badri Narayan was born in Secunderabad, Andhra Pradesh in 1929. Initially, he worked on tile and ceramic, and this informed some of his subsequent water-colours. His works are intimate with simple outlines and accessible subject matter in two-dimensional stylised representations. Narayan draws heavily from Indian traditions and has been influenced by the Indian miniatures. As a result, he preferred to make small two-dimensional works. Narayan has made etchings and woodcuts when choosing to make prints.
