Thiru (b. 1964) joined the Art Therapy Open Studio in November 2018. He loves to share about his life, unique concepts and perspectives. He expresses himself through drawing with markers and colour pencils to reminisce about past memories and events. Thiru creates original fictitious characters and is spontaneous in his art making. Some common subject matters in Thiru’s art include vehicles, superheroes and nature. Thiru loves Hulk Hogan as the Incredible Hulk and is in the midst of creating stories about the Hulk. Thiru is always open to trying and experimenting with new mediums.

I made 2 superhero masks. The first is a Karate Army Boxer. I was trained by staff sergeant John Gerald, Appadurai.
The second mask is about a superhero named Suju, the king of the underwater world.
There are whales swimming around him. My favourite martial artist is Bruce Lee.

This is a coconut which makes everyone happy because even if it’s bent, everything still stays on the tree.
I created a loop by tying a knot at the end of one of the strings so the weaving could be hung!
GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US.
HE IS THE PERSON WHO WILL RECTIFY OUR SORROWS. MOTHER/FATHER TYVM (THANK YOU VERY MUCH).
Both sides of artwork are equally important.
Hence “ALL IS FOR ONE/ONE MUST COOPERATE FOR EVERYONE/WORLD IS A STAGE WE ARE THE ACTORS”.
"Art therapy is a very good therapy, it is the meaning of your heart."

I am Thiru, HULK IS MY ACTION hero. He is a saviour. Saviour whenever he expands. When he doesn’t expand, he is quiet and likes to help people who are needy like an old lady crying. Like Hulk, I help out in the household and those in need.
The One and Only Incredibulk
Pencil on paper
Incredible hulk is sent by God to save a small boy and he is righteous. He also saved an old lady who looks like his mother. Everyone is like his mother. The whole world is his mother and brothers.
Live and Do Good
Feathers, magazine collage and drawing on paper
This is Powerful Piglet. He is a fun guy. The look of his face makes him more and more fun. He’s a pig but willing to change to be like us, a human being. The piglet does good by offering its meat. Powerful Piglet’s superpower is to be an offering for those who are in the loopholes – with no money. The world is a stage, money is a rolling ball and we are the actors.
APPRECIATE YOUR ART WORK
Marker and coloured pencils on paper
I made this piece in response to what I would like to say to people, to encourage them to make art. It is important to appreciate one’s work!
"If someone tells me I'm no good, I will tell him to look at my pictures.
I am a creative person."
