Atmakuru Ramakrishna shows his talent with fingertip paintings.
What started out as a record for painting 100 paintings in 24 hourW, Atmakuru Ramakrishna beat himself to it by finishing in thirteen hours, using only his fingertips.
He used oil and stretched canvases measuring 12x16 inches.
Ramakrishna is the proud holder of Limca Book of Records, Indian Book of Records, Global World Records and Wonder World Records. Ramakrishna is applying for Guinness Book of World Records as well.
Atmakuru Ramakrishna started painting right from his childhood and has won many prizes in his school days. With a Fine Arts degree and gold medallist from JNTU, Hyderabad, Ramakrishna has won many accolades. He says, “I pay attention to textures, after the colours, I think that it's the textures that do all the talking when it comes to paintings and works of art.” In all of his paintings, the mix of the skies and clouds is unique.
Ramakrishna says that it hardly takes him more than 20 minutes to finish an entire landscape painting on canvas— he is like a man with brushes instead of fingers.
This ‘finger-painter' started paintings such landscapes when he was making posters for literacy promotion, “Instead of using finger prints as a sign, get educated and use the finger prints to paint wonders…” he says.
