Jayaraman Kalidass

Kalidass has gained prominence in the Singapore arts scene through an extensive and diverse career as an artist. He has been regularly featured in various exhibitions locally as well as abroad - in places such as Malaysia, Australia, Korea, Hong Kong, India and Taiwan, over the past 11 years, receiving many accolades in the process. Notably, he was featured in a documentary entitled 'Destination Art' that was broadcast on Channel NewsAsia nationwide in 2012 - and was even invited to travel to South India as part of the filming process. He has also been commended by former President of Singapore Mr S R Nathan for a portrait that was presented to him by the artist in 2008.

Kalidass received formal training from LASALLE College of the Arts (Singapore), specialising in the medium of painting, before pursuing post-graduate experience at University of Tasmania (Australia).
