WHEN ONE LOOKS AT GOUD’S WORK, RUSTIC, RAW, AND POTENT MIGHT BE THE FIRST WORDS THAT COME TO MIND. His portraits show men and women. They represent the active Indian ethos, not specific people. The artist often returns to the theme of the erotic. They treat it as a powerful aspect of male and female sexuality and existence.

Goud’s work is dramatic. His protagonists are raw and lively. They are full of energy that rings through his strokes and textures. Most of Laxma Goud’s paintings center on the rural. They recreate landscapes from his childhood as if frozen in time. In the artist’s later work, his figures turn softer. They become more introspective than brash. Recently, the artist has worked on a series of lush landscapes. They are in vivid colors like those of his youth in rural Andhra Pradesh. Like most of the artist’s work, these are small, as if to create an intimate atmosphere. In it, the viewer can engage with his creations.

Art by Laxma Goud transports viewers to a rustic past. His paintings and drawings have exquisite colors. There, men in bright clothes and women with fancy jewelry revel. They revel among animals and lavish flowers. HE CAPTURES BOTH THE SIMPLICITY OF THESE VILLAGERS AND THEIR UNSELFCONSCIOUS EROTICISM. AS HE HAS APTLY SAID, “THERE IS EROTICISM IN NATURE ITSELF.” Laxma Goud got a painting diploma from the University of Hyderabad. Later, he studied mural painting and printmaking at M.S.
