Murali Cheeroth received BFA and MFA in painting from Shanthi Nikathanam. He has exhibited in various significant shows across the globe in the last 2 decades of his art practice. His visual language refers deeply to a variety of sources in the cultural sphere and contains within it a conversation of history of representation in visual media – including literature, fine art, cinema and architecture. His current practice envelopes painting, performance and video art, exploring themes of urbanism and intersections of the global and the local. He lives and works in Bangalore, India.

He is represented by Ashna Gallery.

Murali uses his experience in theatre and focuses on his own body. He holds in his palms the yolk of an egg, symbolic of life and fertility. The egg yolk is juggled between his palms to suggest birth and the becoming of life.
