Cholamandal Artists’ Village

Artist Colony in South of Chennai

There’s a tropical bohemian groove floating around Injambakkam village, site of the Cholamandal Artists’ Village, 10km south of Chennai's Adyar River. This 4-hectare artists’ cooperative – founded in 1966 by artists of the Madras Movement, pioneers of modern art in South India – is a serene muse away from the world. The art in its museum is very much worth lingering over; look especially for work by KCS Paniker, SG Vasudev, M Senathipathi and S Nandagopal.
