He was a renowned figurative artist who focused on the human predicament in our society and empathised with his characters. Multifaceted, he was a man of constant transformation and self discovery. Bid & Hammer in solidarity with the entire art fraternity mourns the loss of the creative genius.

“There is an anguished being, disturbed and distressed somewhere deep inside me, a human being who yearns for a meaningful existence”. It is the human presence that arouses my attention and steers my creative inner space. I have been committed through my work seeking a definition of my works” – Yusuf Arakkal
