Praveena Mohan is a charcoal artist and a miniature painter. Her recent exhibition of her vivid art works along with Astro Mohan at Udupi, especially the miniature painting works on ‘Raasaleela’, a theme based on the Geetha Govinda of renowned poet Jayadeva, raised the eyebrows of art lovers and critics in appreciation.
Recently when Gujarath experienced the trauma of the century, the earthquake, which caused huge loss of life and property ever heard of in the history of the nation, Mohan dared to visit the quake-hit areas and captured the pathetic and heart throbbing scenes in his camera. The daredevil photos taken by Mohan were recently exhibited in the Banquet hall in Vidhana Soudha in Bangalore. The exhibition under the banner ‘Gujarath Earthquake Disaster as I saw it’ was inaugurated by none other than the Chief Minister Mr. S.M.Krishna who whole heartedly appreciated the pains taken by Mohan in capturing the heart throbbing glimpses of the tragedy of the Century to enable people realise the loss of life and property caused by the fury of the mother earth.
Today the proud and rare photographs snapped by Mohan have found prestigious place in the offices of Syndicate Bank, Canara Bank, Karnataka bank, and also in the offices of the Kannada Sangha at Mumbai, Delhi, etc. The spectacular floral photos snapped by him have decorated the calenders of various renowned banks attracting millions of art lovers.
The eminent personalities of photojournalism like Mr.T.S.Satyan, the Magazine Editor of Udayavani, and Mr.A. Ishwarayya have whole-heartedly appreciated the painstaking artistic works of Mohan who has taken the challenge to explore the newer horizons of journalism with greater zeal and commitment for the last eight years in his quest.
Being blessed with “Shree Krishnanugraha Prashasthi” by the seer of Shree Shiroor Matha of Udupi during his tenure of Paryaya, Astro Mohan is in close contact with the seers of Ashta Mathas of Udupi by whose blessings only, he firmly believes, he could scale new heights of success in his life. Added to this, Astro has, to his credit, the choicest blessings of the Dharmadhikari of Dharmasthala, Rajarshi, Dr. Veerendra Heggade.
