No doubt his caliber as an established musician qualifies the melody part reflected in his artworks. The subtlety and purity are the values that one can easily make out into his art.
Besides working as a Designer for many years, Shriram has nurtured his born talent as a fine artist. He has passed his academics into visual arts from Kalaniketan Mahavidyalaya, Kolhapur which is a place with rich traditional master painters. Initially, he had a deep influence of realist masters and so he was fond of painting landscapes and sketching the surroundings.
His shift to Mumbai for his first job as a preproduction artist at UTV Toons, at Mumbai, made a drastic change in his taste and interest as an artist. He continued his study and experiments for a long time. Though fine art was not in the mainstream for Shriram, he participated in a few art shows in Mumbai in the last few years. In 2015 his painting got awarded to the All India Art Exhibition held by Lokmanya Tilak Trust, Pune. His recent art shows are well appreciated by the audience for the uniqueness of his work.
