His art works have always craved for novelty. The gifted artist from Mysore S F Huseni who is popularly called Mysore Huseni has inspired younger generation artists for making experiments.

Huseni who is famous for his paper relief sculptures and paper art like Sanjhi (Indian paper cutting art and Kirigami, a Japanese paper cutting art has brought a new definition to the single line drawing. As the artist grooms his line drawing skills, Huseni has come out with many new ideas and forms. The line drawings of Ganesha is among his best works done so far. These drawings are those which is done in a single line to make the outline sketch of the picture is drawn using a black ball pen.

Huseni has to his credit of making more than 4,000 line drawings, including Ganesha. “Lord Ganesha is an inspiration to me. I have been fascinated by the picture of Ganesha since my childhood days. The trunk of the God is just enough to represent his image,” he says.

According to Huseni, he has tried to represent Ganesha living amongst us through his line drawings. If there is a Ganesha sitting in front of a flower vase, another form of the lord is with flute. To provide a different treatment to the white and black single-line drawings of Ganesha, some of his works are given a background different hues using special graphic effects. He started doing the line drawings since 2004 and began with nature, humanscape, cycle and horses.

“I feel representing Ganesha in different forms gives immense happiness. There are not many artists who have experimented with the Ganesha on single line drawing. For many, my works are a puzzle. They mull on the where the line starts and where it ends during exhibition,” Huseni tells City Herald.  

Currently, the artist is working on representing wine bottles through single line drawing. These works is an attempt to show the family of liquor bottles through art, the artist informs.
