“…the most dramatic of his series of paintings entitled ‘Force’ was inspired by a cyclonic storm that he witnessed while standing at a window. In these paintings all his pent-up nervous energy is channelled into images that swirl and crash and leap with colour and savage brush strokes, that like a samurai’s sword, seem to cleave the line between image and reality.” Geeta Doctor in One Artist Two Lives

“Thota Tharrani’s paintings range from serene landscapes to swirling, stormy abstracts. The restless movement of his paintings are a contrast to the meticulous perspective water colours he draws for his award-winning film sets.”
