Harshavardhan Kadam

Today I have Harshvardhan Kadam with us on Audiogyan. An artist who painted India’s largest mural at Pune’s Yerwada Jail. Harshavardhan has served as an Art Director for animation and live action films for various production houses across India. Now he paints walls and animates them vibrantly. With Mythologies seeded in his vision and sequential story telling, he conceives, perceives and executes his experiences through visuals.
