Sid Katragadda grew up in India and spent most of his life in sunny San Diego, California. His art is thus a fusion of Western and Indian elements. He infuses the bright colors of India with the subtlety of Western art. His paintings, photographic art have been featured on Art Walk San Diego, Mixture Gallery in Downtown San Diego and various galleries across the world. Although Sid is very much an Indian Artist, he has never been able to distance himself from Western influences. 'I'm drawn towards the intricacy of Modern Indian Art and the Simplicity of Western Art. A big part of my struggle as an artist is to make the two art forms meet.
