Suresh K. Nair, an artist from Palakkad loves to tell stories by making murals on public walls. Hailing from Palakkad, this professional artist is also a former student of the famous mural maestro, Mammiyoor Krishnan Kutty Nair. Suresh always dreamt of making murals about his homeland. As a keen reader, he once read a book written by the freedom fighter, Mozhikunnam Brahmadathan Namboodiripad about Cherpulassery, a town near Palakkad. A particular incident mentioned in the book disturbed the mural artist to a great extent.
Later, he jumped at the opportunity to make murals on the walls of Cherpulasser High School. Soon, the mural artist gathered 15 of his students and started the work. Suresh felt that this town hasn’t received enough attention for their part in the Freedom Movement.
The theme of the mural art on the school walls was quite evident. It was all about peace and the artist along with his students depicted the story of Mozhikunnam Brahmadathan Namboodiripad in one part of the 700 feet long wall. Moreover, the mural artist and his students carved the word ‘peace’ on the wall in 250 different languages. Apart from this, the wall now bears murals about Mahatma Gandhi and Subhash Chandra Bose. The mural also talks about the Mappila Lahala, a rebellion that took place in Kerala in 1921. Suresh took care of the financial requirements of the students during their stay in the village. The artwork is extremely inspiring and narrates each story beautifully. The wall looks astounding and will certainly take the viewer into the past of India and the Freedom Movement.
And what’s even more astounding is that the mural artist has done another wall art about peace in the Wagah Border, before this one. This one was done on a 200 feet wall and includes a lot about the history of India.
