Exhibition of Cartoons 'VAKRA KIRANA' by Kantesh M. Badiger at Indian Cartoon Gallery, BengaluruHailing from an artists family in a remote village (Amminabhavi) in Dharwar District, Karnataka, Kantesh Badiger was attracted towards the art of cartooning since his childhood. He completed his high school education(KHS) and Diploma in E&C from KHK Institute of Engineering in Dharwar.

Inspired by the cartoons of N.F.Chakrasali he started drawing cartoons in 1994. His cartoons were being published by many Daily Newspapers and periodicals for 10 years. Kantesh got a big break in 2005, when he joined `UshaKiran’ a Kannada Daily as a cartoonist. His political cartoons earned lots of appreciation from the readers for 2 years.

Then with determination Kantesh aquired the knowledge of Graphic Design with modern technology which helped him work as Comic Artist, Creative Designer, Visualiser and Art Director in many Advertising Agencies and DNA Publishing House for many years. In 2013 with infinite zeal and enthusiasum Kantesh started his own company `KANTESH CREATIONS’ which undertakes Printing, Electronic and Online Media, Advertising and Cinema works.

With all this he never stopped drawing cartoons on social responsibilities and fundamental rights of the people and got published them in Newspapers and Magazines. His happiest moment came when he won recently Second Prize in The Maya Kamath Memorial Awards Competition for excellence in Political Cartooning-2014.
