Born on April 4th, 1974 in Vijayawada, A.P. Stalin's formal art education began and did B.F.A. at S.V. College of Fine Arts, Hyderabad. And went on to do M.F.A from Hyderabad Central University.
Stalin's work is dependent on design fundamentals, form, colour and composition. He believes that the simplest forms evoke complex emotions. He spontaneously begins an art piece and it becomes more detailed as the end product starts to show itself. The process involves layering.
There are no preliminary sketches of what is going to develop. I nurture different forms and shapes in the middle of the process. My colour theory seems to be the most immediate aspect of my work to the viewers very instinctive.
He participated in a number of Art camps and group shows with well known Contemporary artists like M.F.Hussain, T.Vaikuntam, K.Laxma Goud, Jatin Das, Shamshad Hussain, Suhas Roy, Adimoolam, akbar padam sri,Yusuf Arakkal and Sunil Das.
