Kaimurai is the identity through which Abishek Ganesh J (b. 1984) expresses his Art and research practice. His work is a dialogue between organic forms and flow of energy experienced in the Western Ghats, Ancient South Indian art, rituals, architecture and Carnatic music. 

He captures raw energy and inherent vibration that is omnipresent but buried by daily chaos. Repeated markings (from fine strokes to large brush strokes) are seemingly calm and yet aggressive are characteristic to the organic nature of his work. An expression executed only with Natural Indigo. “There are three elements that trigger my work. A combination of Material(Natural Indigo), Organic forms real or fantasized and Carnatic music. My mind wanders in the fantastical jungles of ancient past with life in abundance, strange formations and is informed by the mysticism of Carnatic music. 
It is a meditative process, an interaction between the Physical and metaphysical. My hands take control over my mind, creating repeated markings, a method which renders the artwork.”

Abishek (b. 1984) graduated from National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) in 2005 and has spent numerous years in the apparel industry heading design for leading brands. He decided to give up his design career to focus on creating art. His recent solo shows include, ‘Driggnita’ at Bikaner House, by Blueprint12 (2024); 'Divine Blue' at Kaash Foundation Bangalore (2022) and 'Shadjam' at Blueprint12 (2021). More recently he has been a part of the group display Sutr Santati, at Melbourne Museum (May 2023); Conjunctions of the Sphere, group show for DCAW cuarated by Girish Shahane, Bikaner House (2023); and at NGMA, Mumbai (November 2023). Also participated at Art Mumbai 2023; the Delhi Contemporary Art Week, Bikaner House, 2022 and 2023; and India Art Fair 2023, 2024.

He lives and works from Bangalore, India.
