Tiroumale D hails from Puducherry. His art work depicts compatibility of ‘surrealism’ with his inner mind which has gradually evolved and transpired into an emotional surrealistic expression. He continues his art journey open to all inspirations from Mother Nature. Taking further inspiration from the legendary Salvador Dali, his work focuses on subconscious and symbolic imagery of profound surrealist nature. He completed his B.F.A at Bharathiar Palkalai Koodam College of Arts & Crafts in Pondicherry (1992- 1997).
He has worked in Chennai for about 14 years in the field of animation and graphics. In this process, his everyday commute to work with public transport one day made him wonder, what would an auto look like if it was for 100 passengers? The thought evoked an imagery spark and as a result his ‘Auto rickshaw series’ came in to existence. Comprising of the stretched, zig zag surrealism type of drawings, this series reminds of ruined structures of the auto rickshaws where people travel on a daily basis and gives it a raw emotional expression.
