Siddharth Katragadda is a poetic and novelic author and an accomplished painter. He was born in 1972 in Bangalore and spent his first twenty-three years there. Katragadda has been painting since he was around ten. He has created his own unique style in which he rarely uses the brush. He calls this as 'brushless painting'. He has never been able to distance himself from Western influences. The intricacy of Modern Indian Art and the Simplicity of Western Art have always attracted him. A big part of his struggle as an artist was to make the two art forms meet. His paintings are an exploration of colors, textures, and dimensions, a melting pot of India and western Modern Art.

Siddharth draws inspiration from various contemporary Indian artists, whose influences are seen vividly in his paintings. While he started off painting abstracts, his style has now evolved into a fusion of Figurative and Abstract, with Figurative dominating his art.
