Murali Cheeroth creates scenes in an unusual perspective where human figures are depicted as mythical and isolated at once. Often mere fragments, they are placed in worlds which are immersed in the glare of neon light, presenting a stark contrast to the realistically portrayed industrial sites and objects.
In addition to an impressive list of solo and group expositions in India and abroad, he is also actively involved in thetare, is widely traveled and has taught art and design.
Murali lives and works in Bangalore, India.
