About L.S.N Achar
Born in 1939, L. Shankara Narayana Achar lives and works in Mysore, India. His Artistic talent and creativity are evident in all his art works. His watercolor Art works evidenced by some of his vibrant compositions appear to be his forte through his Landscape paintings and his depiction of modernity in Indian, western and folklore styles are equally impressive.

L.S.N Achar is such an artist who has brought to life the characters created by writers in Kannada magazines for over three decades. His works have been published by a number of magazines, including ‘Gokula’, ‘Mallige’, ‘Kailasa’, ‘Janapragathi’, ‘Prajamata’ and ‘Sudha’. Achar did a number of cover illustrations before the more sophisticated color transparencies invaded the magazines.

When the Mysore state was christened Karnataka on 1st. November 1963, he did a series of posters for an exhibition at the banquet hall in Vidhan soudha Bangalore, sponsored by India book House. He received autographs from former president and Vice President of India with appreciation on their portraits made by him.

Though he received no formal training, Achar’s inherent artistic ability was honed by his father Narayana Achar and later by F.M. Sofi. Having been born in Mysore, the landscapes and historic buildings provided enough grist to Achar’s talent.

Even after joining government services, Achar continued his favourite hobby doing illustrations for prestigious publications as the india Book House and Bharata – Bharati Series brought out by the Rastrothana Parishath.
